Learning during rest


Any suggestions on knots to learn? I recently listened to the Stew Smith podcast 'Tactical Fitness Report' amd Stew talked about using rest times in the gym to learn knots for underwaters

That is a great recommendation! Although tying knots to a rope underwater and dealing with being out of breath, staying propelled to the bottom of the pool, and dealing with the drift of the ropes from the water is something that cannot be replicated on land...that is still a great way to get the knots practices under stress.


We recommend learning the fisherman, inside bowline, square, girth hitch, and clove hitch.

I appreciate the help.

Another suggestion I heard was once you master a knot, learn to tie it behind your back. Is there anything else that you would like to add to this?

I'm going to go ahead and say that for purposes of getting ready for Pararescue INDOC, that's a bit too much...I would instead recommend you tie the knots with your eye closed.
