Hey, everybody! It’s been a while since I’ve done a fitness post! Since my days are basically filled with workouts I’ve created for my clients, I thought I would share one with you. I LOVE workouts that are off the gym floor. I actually have a confession: I DON’T LIKE THE GYM.
I love working out, obviously, but I don’t like gyms. I know that sometimes you gotta take it inside, but what I like to do and how I roll with my clients can be done just about anywhere. I like to create fun, varying, and functional workouts because they keep people interested and THEY WORK.
One of my ABSOLUTE favorite tools is the battle rope because it is so much fun AND I feel like a total badass after I use them. So, badass, in fact, that, I feel like I could roll up on Rhonda Rousey …and still get my ass kicked in under three seconds. I think that battle ropes should come with a warning on them, because you do feel insanely tough after you use them and you could end up having your mouth write a check your ass can’t cash.
But I digress because I’m starting to make no sense.
If you have access to battle ropes, or want to buy them to add to your own fitness equipment collection, I’ve got an awesome workout for you that will not only burn a shitload of calories while increasing your strength and coordination, but it will also make you feel super empowered.
Battle Rope Workout!
I tried this workout with my client, Kaly, this past Saturday and she was working up a sweat and having so much fun in the process (even in the miserable Glasgow rain that has made a comeback)! She was a good sport and let me take a few snapshots!
Incidentally, it’s really hard capturing someone busting their butt with battling ropes like she was!
I love to keep workouts fun and interesting and with battle ropes you get just that. Strength training and endurance rolled into one killer workout. I HIGHLY recommend giving them a try if you want to mix things up and feel totally badass!
