Stroops MMA Battle Rope Son of the Beast Review

Stroops MMA Battlerope Son of the Beast review

Battlerope workouts have been all the rage since they appeared on the MMA scene several years ago on shows like The Ultimate FighterUFC Fighter Training bio's and more recently Crossfit training gyms across the nation are including them into regular workouts. 


 A typical battle rope workout consists of a long piece of 1.5 to 2 inch girth rope anywhere from 30 to 50 feet long. attached to any given anchor i.e a tree, basketball hoop pole, fence, weights etc. and vigorously shaken up, down all around cardio type workout. The effectiveness in these type of ropes are the weight of the rope only. The arms and shoulders will get tired, some core work can be done as well and the main benefit is the cardiovascular system.

How are Stroops Battleropes any different?

First lets look at the construction of the Stroops Son of the Beast Battlerope. Instead of just plain rope this design is made up of "Slastix" which is a covered resistance band in varying strengths. 47 lbs, 77 lbs, 105 lbs  and a whopping 150 lbs each handle. So this rope actually fights you back! With the resistance constantly pulling you forward (or backward) your biceps, back, chest, tris, and leg muscles get fried really quick depending on how far back you are from the anchor, the further back you get the stronger the resistance. These Battle ropes come in a pair of 10 ft lengths which can be stretched to 30 ft long.

  Each rope has a loop for gripping and pulling. The bright orange covering is designed not only for flash, but a protector of the rubber resistance band underneath. The covering will also prevent the band from being overstretched as the band is longer than the covering, so if it ever gets maxed out the covering will stop stretching 1st so the band will have more length to be stretched . Top quality materials are used in a state of the art manufacturing facility, made in America. After years of use and abuse I have never seen one break. 

  Extreme Versatility
Unlike a plain old rope , the Stroops Son of the Beast MMA Battlerope has many uses for example I recently took these babies out for an extreme test drive (see video below) to see what happened.
         Here are some of exercises you can do with these battle ropes.

  In this video I am using the 47 lb per handle set of Battle Ropes. And they are kicking my butt on this rock! The resistance gets progressively harder as the rope is stretched out, thus activating the type III combo med + fast twitch muscle fibers giving you more explosiveness and speed.


  These battle ropes are by FAR the Best I have ever used! They give me an incredible workout, and provide PLENTY of resistance for anyone in martial arts, MMA, Wrestling, BJJ, Boxing, Bodybuilding, Strength Training or if you just want to look like a fighter, Get some of these!


Limited only by your imagination! As you can see the amount of muscles you can strengthen (Full Body Workout) along with your cardio and even circuit training, adding in body weight combos the Stroops Son of the Beast Battlerope is King of The Jungle! 


Variety is the spice of your fitness life and these ropes definitely keep things interesting and fun!
