Body-Solid Fitness Training Ropes

Make Heavy Rope Training Part of Your Workout Routine

Rope in a great new way to supplement your strength and conditioning training.

There comes a point in every persons life that calls for change. Your fitness regimen is no exception. How many times can you bench those same plates? Aside from the boredom factor, there’s also the drawback of the plateau effect. Adding an unconventional training technique to your fitness routine will not only put some life back into your workouts, but also shock some different muscles into getting in on the action

Originally developed for specific combat sports such as football and Mixed Martial Arts, heavy rope training (aka rope battling) is now finding its way into the mainstream. If you’re looking for a highly effective, back-to-basics type of conditioning that brings a new twist to your fitness routine, this is it. Along with increasing your strength, power, and endurance, the constant motion of rope battling will floor you with a muscle toning, metabolic workout unlike any other. You’ll be shocked at how fast a few quick whips can get you to your maximum heart rate.


Rope training is growing in popularity in particular with professional athletes, personal trainers, health clubs, and home fitness enthusiasts. Fitness Training ropes are portable and can be used anywhere for both indoor and outdoor training. Training can be done with individual users or couples and is usually very intense involving the use of multiple muscle groups simultaneously while increasing overall strength, hand strength, and cardio endurance.

Body Solid’s fitness training ropes come in six sizes with varying lengths and diameters. All ropes are made of durable poly-twine with wrapped finished ends for durability. In addition they are black in color to help mask dirt build up over time.

What You Need

Unlike those flimsy infomercial contraptions or expensive home workout machines, heavy rope training requires just one sturdy, low-cost piece of equipment – rope. Don’t have one? No problem. Just go to today and get yourself the rope that best suits your needs (1.5 to 2 inches in thickness). Body-Solid is the best because it’s sturdy, durable, and will stand up to the weekly pounding you put it through.

There are tons of pulse pounding, heavy rope exercises to ramp up your cardio and build your core strength. Common movements include waves, slams, throws, spirals, and whips.  All involve swinging your arms up and down (or side to side) in some manner for timed intervals. To maximize your efforts, focus on maintaining the intensity of the motion from start to finish, no matter how much it burns – and trust us, it’s going to burn.

If you could only use one training tool to cause the biggest metabolic impact, it would be battle ropes…hands down! Battle ropes are one of the best ways to increase overall work capacity that provides an intense muscle shredding workout that can be incorporated into any workout program.

The Benefits of Using Battle Ropes

1.) Low to no impact on the joints which is important for logevity.

2.) Burns as many calories and elevates heart rate just as much as sprinting and running.

3.) Allows for continuous power output where other tools have a clear stop and go or easy and hard part during the movement.

4.) Involves the entire body.

5.) Works the core muscles in ways that few other training tools can by both utilizing your shoulders, hips, and abs and also forcing you to brace your core and stabilize your spine during explosive movement.
