THE BATTLE-ROPE FINISHER
Complete five rounds of the following moves.
- With a rope in each hand, perform pulsing quarter-squats while doing lateral slams with the ropes.
Reverse Lunge With Small Waves
- Start this movement by creating small waves in the ropes. (Think about “air drumming.”) Then begin reverse lunging, alternating legs each time. (pictured above)
- Pull both ropes violently from the ground as if you were tossing a ball overhead.
- Hold both ends of the rope together and then violently slam them from side to side, bringing your arms up and over.
