Rope Workouts

One of the most popular forms of exercise right now is using ropes in workouts. Ropes can be used in order to improve strength and endurance as well as working your entire core while giving you a cardiovascular workout all at the same time.  Ropes can be a great total body workout, plus they will also dramatically help you to you improve your wakeboarding by working all areas of fitness.  Check out the video below and let me know what you think.

    Hi, have you tried an undulation workout yet?

    It’s a bit of a hassle to find an appropriate rope here in switzerland. So am asking myself is it really worth it?
    Until about a month ago i allways went to the gym about 2times a week and made a full body workout mainly with free waights.
    That was just to stay in shape, the main fun and goal is the 3-5 times tramp (1h) training or wakeboarding i am doing depending on the season.

    At the moment i am not to shure anymore if the staying in shape part is what helps my wakeboarding the most.
    So at the moment i try to do some plyometrics and core stabilisation exercises after every trampoline training (1h including streching).

    What do you think, would i benefit from such a rope wourkout greatly or do you have some better ideas for me to improve my off water workout?

    Thank you verry much…
    Cheers Marc Kubli…

      Marc,

      I use ropes in my workouts quite often. Ropes can give you a great workout as well help to break up the monotony of your regular routine. The exercises that you can do with ropes are only limited by your imagination.

      Ropes are also great for using with intervals in order to improve your work capacity and recovery time.

      Staying in shape will definately help your wakeboarding. (Doing something is better than nonthing.) You will be able ride longer, recover faster, and it will also help to prevent injuries.
