In the fitness and sport performance industries, there are new training tools and gadgets that are popping up all the time. Some turnout to be fads, and others become staples in training programs. Over the last 3 to 4 years, conditioning or battling ropes have become extremely popular in gyms and training facilities. Conditioning ropes can be used for cardiovascular, strength, rehabilitation, and competition purposes, hence the growth in popularity.
At Tom Campbell Fitness, we use the conditioning ropes for several purposes, but we mainly use them as a workout finisher. They are an excellent tool to increase blood flow/heart rate and get that last muscle pump to end a workout. However, we always pay attention to our body control and never sacrifice form or posture.
