Battle Ropes

AdrianneHo_BattleRopes-6We all should be familiar with┬ájumping rope but it’s time to get another, more extreme rope exercise into your routine: battle ropes. Just as the name implies getting through these movements will be a fight but the benefits are worth it! You strengthen your arms, abs, shoulders, and engage legs while getting a killer conditioning workout. You can also burn up to 10 calories a minute if done right!
AdrianneHo_BattleRopes-4AdrianneHo_BattleRopes-5While standing in a squat, face the anchor of the ropes holding one in each arm. Raise one arm to shoulder level and then quickly lower back to start, raising the other arm to shoulder level as you do so. Continue alternating as rapidly as possible without losing form. When you’re doing this right the rope should take the shape of waves moving rapidly. Go as fast as you can for 30 seconds and rest for 30 seconds. Repeat 4 times. It’s hard to for long periods of time but you can get the best results by coming back to them frequently during your workout.
