Amazing Heavy Rope Workout HIIT! I have seen it in magazines, gym, and I have heard about it. Personally, however, I never tried it until I was strongly determined to lose weight after my second pregnancy. Usually I prepare my workouts ahead of time, before coming to the gym that is, and stick to my plan that includes plenty of exercises. As I mentioned, I have seen heavy ropes but I always somehow did not include it into my workout routine.
A couple weeks ago, I went to a gym, that recently opened, and the heavy ropes were just in front of the machine I was using. I decided to give it a try as a final exercise. Oh man, why have I not tried it before?! It is really challenging! Or maybe it feels challenging because it was my first time or/and my body is not used to it. I did only a couple of rounds since I had to rush to pick up my child from a kids’ club. Fortunately, I came back next week and did the full HIIT workout: 8 rounds. I was toasted. I felt like I was going to have a massive heart attack. My heart was ready to jump out of my chest, and my body felt like a furnace!
I highly recommend this workout routine. If you are a beginner, however, or if it is your first time: take it easy, take longer breaks, and do not do as many rounds; 2-3 rounds should be enough for starters. Later, once your conditioning improves you can increase the total number of rounds, increase the lengths or those rounds, and/or decrease the resting periods.
