I’ve announced the winner for the Sparkly Soul headband giveaway! Congrats to the winner!
Today let’s chat about the undulation rope:
I’ve been seeing this rope in my gym for a while now. When I was pregnant there was no way I was going to try and lug those things up and down. Since Ella was born I have been doing a lot of different workouts. Many of them tabata style, which I am loving.
One day I got real ambitious and went over to attempt my first workout with 50 feet of rope. Let me tell you, 4 minutes of this was tougher than 20 minutes on an expensive piece of equipment. In fact, I am hating lengthy cardio these days, so any excuse to skip out on the elliptical works well for me.
There are a few different lengths and two different sizes to choose from. My gym has both a 1.5” and a 2” thick ropes. The black rope (1.5”) in the first picture is lighter and more manageable for a beginner like me. The rope sizes vary from 25-50 feet in length.
I love using the undulation rope because my upper body, hips and core were burning for days after my workout! I loved it!
My plan was to get a few videos shot of either myself or one of my trainer friends, who has much more experience with the rope, for you guys. He was using the Bosu last week, in my favorite Bosu position (upside down), and I can’t wait to master the movement enough to try that out!
For now, here’s an awesome video I found courtesy of Workout Muse.A few of the different waves you can do with the rope is included in this video…
He has a bunch of rope undulation rope workout ideas and videos so I urge you to go check it out! Hopefully I can get some for you all soon too when I add some variety and balance in the mix!
For now you get a tool bag post-workout pic of me. Because I’m freaking sexy when I workout. No. Really though. That’s what bloggers do. This is until I muster up the courage to ask someone to shoot a video of some moves for you. Deal.
These headbands have changed my life though. I need to order some in every color I think.
What’s new workout tools or methods have you tried lately? Anything I should know about!??
What’s your favorite way to use Tabata intervals?
