Hi Harris. Battling ropes, like other exercise modalities, can be used to increase calorie burn, can be used to add ‘intervals’ into the training session, and can be used to add variety and a different challenge to the client’s workout. And like all other pieces of exercise equipment, we as trainers need to make sure that they are appropriate for the particular client to use.
There are so many ways to incorporate battle ropes in a workout!!…I currently use them in my bootcamp…I am actually planning on running a battle rope boot camp later this month. Check out my videos…I have a few creative exercises that incorporate it into a workout. They are great for improving power, core stability, and increasing your stamina.
One of my favorites is incorporating a Rope Battle Burpee in a workout… It’s a normal burpee with a push-up at the bottom and then a rope flare at the top…I’m sure your clients will either love it (or really hate it!)
