Onnit Battle RopesBattle Ropes are great for upper body conditioning, core stability, and increasing aerobic capacity.

Battle Rope training is no longer just for the mma crowd or fitness elite, they have become a staple in most big box gyms across the globe.

Even with this rise in popularity, they are still only looked at as a tool for conditioning.

While they are a great conditioning tool, battle ropes never get used for strength training, or power output when in reality, they can be used for almost anything.

But battle ropes are only used in typical fashion, such as alternating waves, double waves, double slams, etc.

In today’s A.D.D. world, we know how quickly someone can become bored with these repetitive exercise, so change up your training with these 5 Battle Ropes Exercises you have probably never tried before!

Most Battle Ropes exercises involve standing in some way, shape, or form. It is always good to put your body in a position it is not comfortable with, and the Battle Rope Sitting Pull does just that.

Battle Ropes Exercise #2: Forward Pull Through

The Battle Rope Forward Pull Through exercise resembles a rope pull with a sled or prowler, which targets your back, core, and biceps. What makes this movement unique is the leverage difference do to the anchor points created by the kettlebells.

Battle Ropes Exercise #3: Backward Pull Through

The Battle Rope Backward Pull Through exercise is one of my favorite Battle Ropes exercises because it forces you to maintain a strict hinge position for the entire drill. The hinge position just happens to be one of the weakest positions for most trainees.

Battle Ropes Exercise #4: Side Pull

The Side Pull is another Battle Ropes exercise that makes you maintain a hinge position throughout the drill. Only this time, there is much more core engagement because of the off balanced position your body is put into by the placement of the anchor point.
