Jacobs Ladder & Rope Training


It is SUPER rare that Marc and I workout together but when we do I feel like we both train hard. We used to go to the gym a lot together, but that was before Ava became part of our family. Now we usually do separate workouts but it is always fun to workout together.

On Saturday, we visited a new local gym called Clay Health Club & Spa. I actually shouldn’t say we visited a gym, Clay feels like a high-end luxury resort more then it does a gym. The people there are over the top friendly and there was a calming feel about the space.

I was in love with all the equipment, and they had top of the line EVERYTHING. We quickly warmed up on a couple of ellipticals and then we explored the wellness area.

I decided to start with a quick set of Pull-ups. Marc spotted me since I hadn’t done Pull-ups in forever. While I did not do as many as I was hoping for, it felt great to incorporate them back into a workout!

Rope & Kettle Bell Workout

Here is what the rest of my workout consisted of:

15 kettlebell swings (25lb Kettlebell)

Alternating Rope slams (30 seconds) Marc and I did a bigger range of motion then the clip in the video

Rope Jacks (30 seconds)

10 squat to upright rows (25lb KB)

I completed 4 rounds and took rest as needed.

Marc and I then finished our workout with the Jacobs Ladder. It was awesome & challenging and my heart was racing. I wish I had one of these in my basement.

We would have loved to stay longer at Clay Health Club but little Miss Ava was super tired. While we worked out she had fun playing in the childcare area!

As for the rest of my weekend, we ordered some delicious italian take-out food, we enjoyed the fall weather and being outside with Cooper, I did an awesome cardio workout thanks to T-25, and we hung out with family!

It was a great weekend :) How was yours?

Have you ever used a Jacobs ladder?

Are you a fan of rope training? If you have never used them would you try it?
