Battle ropes, sometimes called heavy ropes, can provide a high-intensity, whole-body workout that gets your muscles moving in new ways. Unlike the relatively static movement of lifting and lowering a barbell, using battle ropes is a dynamic movement that has the added benefit of showing you whether you’re doing the movements correctly.
The ropes can be whipped, slammed, or dragged, but among the most popular are undulating movements that cause the ropes to move in waves.
Battle ropes are often thought of as a tool for your upper body, which they are. However, their benefits don’t end there. Battle rope workouts work the muscles in your abs, back, and glutes, and we can incorporate movements, such as jumps, lunges, and squats that work your legs, too.
