Battle ropes help you to work different muscle groups simultaneously, these include: both arms, shoulders, back, legs, chest and core. Add in some squats and lunges whilst you use the ropes and you will be seeing results in no time. The ropes are perfect for any fitness level, whether you are just starting out or a fitness fanatic, they come in different widths and lengths allowing you to build up as your strength improves. They are simple to use and can be set up anywhere, so you can choose whether you want to exercise indoors or outside. With a massive variety of workouts to choose from you can mixed up your routine, always keeping it fresh and finding the workout that suites you best.
This form of exercise helps to train your metabolism and due to the EPOC effect, these ropes allow you to continue to burn calories after you have finished your workout.
What To Consider
When choosing a battle rope you need to decide what size and length you want and what you are going to be using it for.
HIIT Training, Cardio
If you’re looking for a rope that will allow a high intensity, fast and fat burning workout then a rope with a diameter of 1.5” is going to be the best for you.
Strength and Muscle Building
A rope with a diameter of 2” is better for people who are trying to improve their strength and develop muscle growth, this is because the 2” ropes are 35% bigger than 1.5”.
The length of your rope mainly depends on how much space you have, so if your struggling to find room then the 30” rope will be the best for you, however the 50” rope will maximise your workout potential.
