Battle Ropes

Looking for a high intensity, fat torching workout that doesn’t require a treadmill or other boring cardio equipment? Yeah who wouldn’t, right? Let’s face it, cardio is not always fun — especially on those days where you just want to “get it over with”.  We have something just for you and they’re called Battle Ropes. They are used by world renowned trainers and professional athletes – so you know it works!

Benefits of Battle Ropes

Fat Killer – Burn 300 to 500 calories in as little as 30 minutes – just think how long you would have to spend on the treadmill for the same results! AND when you’re done, you’re body is still in furnace mode – burning higher amounts of calories for hours afterwards.

Builds muscle and burns fat at the same time! – Add lean, toned muscle to your shoulders, core and biceps, while also getting an awesome cardio workout.

Quick Workouts – Good news, if you’re short on time, a 10 to 20 minute battle rope circuit routine will do the trick

Tabata Friendly

  1. If you’re really looking to melt some fat, the Tabata Protocol, a 20-second all out 100% effort set, followed by a 10-second rest period, and repeated 8 times for a total of 4 minutes is one of the best fat burning methods around!
  2. Workout lasting as little as four minutes – you can do multiple rounds of Tabata, that’s if you’re not toast after the first circuit!
  3. Tabata is flexible — mix in different exercises to work the entire body.
  4. Fun and a great way to bust trough plateaus!

Then the Guru of Abs himself, Dashaun Johnson, took the stage for Session 2 and after a quick warm up he turned it up and took it off!

To close out the night in Session 3, Lana Ector came to represent that Black Women Workout Too and showed all the pretty girls that a little twerking can be considered a workout too.
