The high intensity, high-speed movements will crank up your cardiovascular capacity very quickly.
When small muscles have to do big work it drives up caloric expenditure fast.
With the forearms, biceps, triceps and shoulders moving at a high speed under tension, you will burn a lot of calories in a short period of time.
Ropes will help you burn fat and build muscle at the same time.
Add in the EPOC (Excessive Post Oxygen Consumption), aka “afterburn” you get from this versatile tool, and you will be burning more calories even after your workout is over.
Rope training is guaranteed to improve timing and coordination, which can help you in your sport and in daily life.
Add jumps, shuffles, kneeling and moving backwards and forwards into your rope training, and it becomes a full-body functional workout.
When it comes to making gains and getting results, never underestimate the importance of mental toughness.
An intense workout using battle ropes will test your mental willpower without running your body into the ground.
