I lift four days per week (Mon/Tues/Thurs/Fri) with an upper/lower/upper/lower training split. Recently I decided to add in some “conditioning” on Saturdays. The thing is I hate doing cardio, mainly because I find it mind-numbingly boring.
But cardio is important cause, you know, health. And since I’m more inclined to take up salsa dancing than I am to start running, I decided to use battle ropes to get my Saturday sweat on. And it’s been awesome. I’m getting an extra arm day in sans the repercussions of overtraining.
Battle ropes build muscle and improve your conditioning. So, if you’re a meathead like myself, you’ll love this “cardio” workout.
