Best for athletes and individuals looking to take their workout intensity to the next level. Notable attributes/details: These ropes are covered by nylon sleeves to protect them from damage. They also have heat shrink grips to protect your hands and improve grip capabilities on the rope. These ropes are built to last! The 100% Dacron sleeve protects the rope from the wear and tear of tough workouts. The ropes come in multiple sizes: the shorter ropes may provide a challenge for beginners, while the longer ropes will be better to challenge more intermediate and advanced gym enthusiasts. Comes with a free anchor.
Can’t find a knock on the quality here! Only potential downfall is possibly underestimating the rope intensity you should buy.
This is a must-have training tool for your conditioning tool box if you are looking to turn up the heat of your workouts before summer. The nylon sleeves will add years on the training life of this tool compared to similar options on the market. You can’t go wrong with this pick-up. Sizes/types: These ropes come in 3 sizes: 30ft (18lbs), 40 ft (24lbs), and 50ft (30lbs).

I’m just going to lay this out there right now: I’m a proud card-carrying member of the anti-cardio cardio club. Cardio and I have a love-hate relationship. We aren’t friends; we’re more like acquaintances who can get together and spark really dope conversation when the need arises. In my case, the discussion usually arises midweek with some slow and steady work to enhance my recovery. I understand that every workout can’t be a high intensity workout because when it comes to building a killer physique and maintaining it over the long term, sometimes less is more.
With summer around the corner, you may be looking to ramp up your workout intensity in order to get beach-body ready. Maybe you have been crushing traditional cardio up until this point, but how much conditioning work are you doing? If your answer is “not much,” I can’t think of a better reason for you to start ramping up on these heart pounding, physique-transforming workouts. Conditioning fires up the metabolism, builds lean muscle and helps you look great no matter what you’re wearing. If any of that sounds great to you, then maybe a little change is in order.
If you are looking for a more dynamic, fat-blasting workout tool to fuel your conditioning fire, look no further than the battle rope. You may have seen it used at your gym for rope slams, but based on your routine, this versatile training tool can be used to sculpt your entire body. It requires a ton of power and energy and is sure to leave you sore! I’m a fan of the Battle Rope by Power Guidance. It’s a must-have for your home gym or outdoor workout space.
