Make Waves with Battling Ropes

5 Aug

Battle-ropes[1]Training with battling ropes is a great metabolic workout, according to a report from Men’s Health magazine.

Researchers from the University of Minnesota found that using battling ropes for just 10 minutes can burn about 150 calories.

Finish your next training session with this workout:

  • Hold an end of the rope in each hand.
  • Get in an athletic stance (as pictured); chin up, chest up; feet a little wider than shoulder-width apart; hips down, knees bent; torso and legs relaxed.
  • Begin making alternating, up-and-down waves.
  • Go for 15 seconds and rest for 45 seconds (that’s one circuit).
  • Perform 10 circuits.
