If you are not familiar with the “battle rope” you are missing out on a great new way to exercise. Especially if you don’t like long distance running, or some other form of cardio workout.
The best way to describe battle rope exercises is to compare it to doing wind sprints with your arms. This is an awesome form of cardio, and strength training exercises which can get you in great shape fast. It’s also a fun way to get in your exercise.
What I really like about battle ropes is that it’s quick, and intense. In this post/video you’ll see 15 different exercises that you do for 20 seconds each. That’s all it takes. Believe me, once you’re done, you’re DONE.
Watch the video below to see them.
When it comes to cardio, I’m one of those people who like to get it done as fast as possible. Jogging long-distance or spending thirty minutes on an elliptical isn’t my thing. That’s why I love high intensity interval training (HIIT).
The basic idea of HIIT is to alternate between periods of short, intense anaerobic exercise (like sprinting, kettlebell swings, or burpees) with less intense resting periods.
You repeat this sequence of short, intense exercise and resting for as little as four minutes or as long as thirty minutes. Research has shown that HIIT improves both aerobic and anaerobic conditioning, boosts testosterone levels, and ramps up your metabolism and keeps it ramped up hours after you’ve finished exercising.
