Yesterday, the trainer at my gym introduced me to battle ropes. Holy freaking workout!
For those that don’t know what battle ropes are, here’s a great video I found on them:
I love the fact that it is a core workout, in addition to the (obvious) arms workout. I was only doing three sets of 20 seconds with 20 seconds rest in between. And, then I repeated that later in the workout. By the third set (both times), my waves were getting smaller and smaller. TOUGH exercise. And, I loved it.
I am definitely going to be mixing this into my strength training.
