Why You Need It
The Battle Rope offers an overall full body workout that is both fast and extremely effective! Including the Battle Rope into your workout will take your cardio to the next level, while increasing your reaction time and metabolic rate!
How It Helps
The COREFX Rope is a very popular resistance tool for strength training, engaging the hands, arms, shoulders, back, core, and even the legs (when squats are incorporated) for a full-body workout. Use the rope to sculpt muscles, improve endurance, kick your cardio up a notch, and burn calories.
What You Can Do With It
The rope has an endless amount of exercises that you can incorporate into your workout. The ropes can be whipped, slammed, or dragged, but among the most popular are undulating movements that cause the ropes to move in waves.
To do so, take one end of the rope in each hand and start making alternating “waves” by moving each arm up and down. Once you have the hang of that, move to double waves, with both arms going up and down at the same time. These two exercises are just the beginning of what you can do with the battle rope.
- Add squats, lunges, jump squats or lateral jumps while working the ropes
- Try holding a plank while moving the rope up and down with one arm
- Holding the rope ends in your hands, add a burpee between waves
