battle ropes exercises abs

1. BENEFITS - Strengthen you six pack abdominals, obliques (love handles) and lower back. High calorie burn & great for fat loss, too.

2. GRIP - Bottoms up grip. Barrel hold both, or one in each hand if you have smaller hands.

3. STANCE - Feet just outside shoulder width apart. This is your power position & should feel very stable. Feet grounded, but will pivot as you rotate.

4. POSTURE - Knees should remain bent throughout the movement. Stick you butt out & lean forward. This is commonly referred to as an athletic stance. Be sure to not lean backwards, nor hunch your back/shoulders.

5. PROGRESSIONS- Start with a single 1.5 inch battle rope. Then use both handles. A longer rope will also increase the intensity. We're using 50 foot ropes at our training facility. Next would be a larger rope, at 2 inches wide. Finally, you can travel forwards & backwards with this drill.

This is one of the dozens of battle ropes exercises that we utilize, to get our clients awesome results. Let us create a fitness & nutrition program that's perfect for you!  Have you ever used the ropes before? Did we miss one of your favorites? We love your feedback.
