I currently have access to that equipment but I'm deployed right now so when I get home in a bit, I'm trying to explore ways to continue my work capacity sessions. I don't want to return and get fluffy haha You are right, nothing comes close to the benefits I can from pulling a Prowler or snapping ropes.
I guess I could do them outside, just the gym works best because its a central location. I ride my bike to work, lift weights, go to work, then at lunch I do cardio to wake myself up so if I could have a central location to do all of these exercises then it would help me be consistent//develop a pattern. Outside the gym works too..... I would just have to grow a pair and deal with the cold outside. Extra incentive to work harder, right?
I've entertained the idea of getting old fire hose, cutting it up, and finding a place to store it in the vicinity of the gym. They also have a rope climbing machine that I could consider as an alternative. My goals involve strength and conditioning so that's what I'm trying to achieve with these tools.
