Hi guys! It’s Brenda here today. How was your weekend? Mine was really good. This is week 3 of my new lifestyle. Around 3 weeks ago I decided not to consume any animal products and although I don’t call myself a ‘vegan’, I’m making a conscious effort not to support animal cruelty. So I buy eggs from my brother in law who has his own extremely happy and properly free-range chickens. Changing your diet implies cooking more and paying more attention to what you eat and your health. My intention is not to deteriorate my health or put my body at risk in any way. So, I’m extra careful and I’ve been learning a lot by doing research and making sure I consume all I need to be healthy.

Anyways… what I want to talk about today is “Battleropes”. A Battlerope is the first bit of equipment that most trainers purchase when they first start running a Bootcamp because the Battlerope is one of the most iconic images that come to mind when people think and picture an outdoor Bootcamp.

There is a lot of functional training equipment out there (e.g trx, medballs, kettlebells, powerbags), but there’s something about a Battlerope. There’s definitely that unconscious connection that if someone sees a Battlerope, they immediately think Bootcamp!

That’s why many trainers buy their first Battlerope when they start a Bootcamp, but there’s one major problem, they don’t really have any Battle Rope workout ideas to do with it. It looks easy, just slam it up and down on the ground right. Not quite, for example, do you focus on power or speed? Do you use more of your arms or more of your hips? Do you slam with both arms together or as one goes up the other goes down? It can actually be pretty confusing. We did a bit of research and came up with 7 distinct “wave” variations:

1: Low waves (can be done double or alternate)
2: High waves (can be done double or alternate)
3: Power Slams
4: Inner circles
5: Outter circles
6: Bullwhips
7: Snakes
