These Battle Rope exercises are simply awesome! You may have seen these before, but been unsure of how to use them. Look no further than these 2 killer moves to get started!
First we have the Rope Waves With Sidesteps. The regular Waves is probably the first exercise most people do with the ropes. But adding the sidestep will add more cardio, more coordination, and even more conditioning than is already present with the regular Waves!
Second, we have Power Jacks. I have renamed them Terminator Jacks however. I really like the sound of that! Anyway, unlike a standard Jumping Jack, Terminator Jacks involve bending your legs and compressing your body in the bottom position. THEN, explode upwards while holding the ropes. By doing this you'll be developing more explosive strength as well as additional shoulder work!
So if you've been thinking of using Battle Ropes, give these exercises a try. You won't be disappointed!
