Onnit Battle Ropes
For centuries the question of how to create the peak heart rate effect of an all out sprint while using largely your upper body went unanswered. Even an explosion of punches, while exhausting, still only exerts force outward, not adequately engaging the ‘pulling’ muscles. Enter John Brookfield, a strongman pioneer known for ripping 60 decks of cards in half in 60 seconds. He pioneered the art of ‘battling ropes’ by maneuvering them in a variety of both linear and circular motions to create a peak heart rate sprint for your upper body.
Mixed Martial Artists were some of the early adopters to this training technique, for obvious performance based reasons. However, battle ropes have now become a staple of any weight loss, shredding, or cardio regimen, due to the minimal joint strain and maximal aerobic and anaerobic output.
- Upper Body Stamina
- Peak Heart Rate Cardio
- Punching Power
Our polypropylene ropes are originally designed to withstand the rigors of the shipyard. Whereas manilla ropes can rot, retain water, and usually leave a trail of fibers, our battle ropes provide excellent weight while remaining virtually water, weather, and shed proof. The ends of the rope are wrapped with special vinyl tape for additional grip support.
