-Get A Rope!-
One of the more nifty tools that’s become a little popular these days is simply a 30-50 foot piece of rope.
What in the heck do you do with a rope, you ask?
Kick your as*!
Rope undulations are TREMENDOUS for total-body training! Your entire body must work to get the waves going, and keep ’em going. You can’t just stand there and flail your arms about and expect it to work! For you core training fanatics, definitely a lot of that goin’ on here! Talk about something that will jack your heart rate up into the stratosphere…and calorie burn? GOT IT!
Here’s a compilation of four basic patterns: double waves, in & out waves, alternating waves, and grappler’s throw. Each one of these patterns has numerous possible modifications. You can make the waves smaller/bigger. You can use different stances. You can add squats and lunges to the mix. AWESOME stuff!
Can’t you just see the calories going up in smoke as I demonstrate? 😀
You can order ropes through Art of Strength (AOS)!!!!!
So there ya have it…another great tool to add to your “outside the box” training arsenal!
