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, Core and even your Legs. It´s an effective cardio 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 to a central anchor so will need a little more then half the rope length as training space. The athlete holds both ends in his hands. The number of exercises is surprisingly high: apart from the well-known wave patterns (which can be done synchronous or alternating) you can do circles with your arms in front of your body or shake the rope horizontally so that it flows 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.
aerobis for highest quality
Common Battle Ropes are often made of hemp or nylon. These materials, however, are not the best choice for fitness training ropes. They are not flexible enough for optimal waves and not suitable for outdoor training. aerobis 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, aerobis Battle Ropes are UV-resistant and don’t soak up water. Thus, battle ropes by aerobis are not only suitable for indoor training but can also be used in outdoor trainings.
