Battle ropes new mantra to shed weight

Being healthy and in shape is one thought that keeps striking people almost every day. Many people just sit and plan and do nothing but plan. At the end of the year, instead of shedding weight, they gain a couple of pounds and they continue to accumulate weight around their waist and almost everywhere else.

But then there are people who have determination to make it happen. These people start with baby steps and then go on to have a toned body and great health indeed. But even many people with determination find it hard to find the perfect way to shed weight and have a toned body.

Now experts have said that battle ropes may be a great idea to lose weight. Many experts claim that the battle ropes are the best whole body workout that will give you perfect result as far as getting shape is concerned.jogging in washington dc

Dailyburn while quoting Max Tapper, ACE-CPT, trainer at The Sports Center at Chelsea Piers in New York City says, “Battle ropes are one of the most effective, full-body, 15-minute workouts you can do…Technically, your legs are always on, squatting or moving, your core strength is being used to stabilize motions and keep you from wavering, and your arms and shoulders are being worked every time you move the ropes.”

It is becoming a very popular method for workout now. According to Jonathan Ross, spokesperson for the American Council on Exercise “It’s a little like running with the upper body…It’s not just using different muscles but training muscles in different ways.”

He says that that the workout through battle ropes involves both the mind and body with “the wave” where “The ropes show you how you’re moving…You see the physical manifestation of the body movement as you watch the ropes. If you do them well, your body is moving well.”
