Start making waves
Training with Battle Ropes might look easy but it can be extremely challenging. The ropes are between 10 and 20 m long and the trainee swings them in different ways to create waves that run towards the anchor. This involves your arms, shoulders, the core, and even your legs, creating an effective endurance training that can be a full workout on its own as well as a challenging finisher at the end of a workout.
How does Battle Rope training work?
The Battle Rope is fixed around a central anchor and the trainee holds both ends in their hands. Thus, you will need about half the rope length as training space. The number of exercises is surprisingly high: apart from the well-known waves (which can be done synchronously or alternatingly) you can run circles with your arms in front of your body, swing the rope horizontally (so it runs like two snakes towards the anchor point) or explosively move both ends simultaneously from one side of your body to the other side. If you change your body position during the exercises – e.g. doing lunges at the same time or swinging the rope from a plank position – you can intensify your rope workouts even more.
blackthorn for highest quality
Common Battle Ropes are often made of hemp or nylon. These materials, however, are not the best choice for training ropes. They are not flexible enough for optimal waves and not suitable for outdoor training. blackthorn Battle Ropes are made of polyester and manufactured with a complex weaving technique. This makes them heavier than other training ropes and, at the same time, more flexible. A stabilizing rope core is sewn up with the outer layer, guaranteeing that the Battle Ropes always keep their form. Additionally, blackthorn Battle Ropes are UV-resistant and don’t soak up water. Thus, battle ropes by blackthorn are not only suitable for indoor training but can also be used in outdoor trainings.
