Exercise ropes are very poplar in today’s gyms, training and coaching, and households for staying in shape and maintaining health. Not only do exercise ropes give a great workout they work the work the muscles in your abs, back, and glutes, and you can incorporate movements, such as jumps, lunges, and squats, that work your legs, too.
Would you believe that using your arms to quickly move a 40 foot piece of rope would give you a better cardio workout than a $4000 piece of equipment? Believe it!
When exercising below maximum oxygen consumption (i.e., not going to failure), the comparatively small muscle mass of the arms, along with the need to recruit trunk stabilizers and lower body synergists, make upper body exercise a greater challenge to your cardiovascular system than equivalent lower body exercise. Your heart has to work harder to deliver oxygen to those hard working muscles! This leads to higher cardiac output and oxygen consumption, and one killer workout!
