TRAINING QUICK-START

Start with the basics. Whether your goal is to  lose weight , get healthy, get in better shape, or all of the above, there are three main components to your program: Make ROPEFLEX Part of Your Routine - How to Set Up a Comprehensive Exercise Schedule

  • Cardio exercise:  This can be any activity that gets your  heart rate  up, from walking or jogging to cycling or pulling rope .
  • Strength training:  You don't have to lift heavy weights or even spend a lot of time on weight training at first, but you do need to lift. In addition  rope pulling   is a great way to strength train. Your muscles will get stronger and the more muscle you have, the more calories you burn overall. That helps with losing weight.
  • Flexibility training:  You also need to have the flexibility to go through a full range of motion of each exercise. Stretching increases your flexibility and helps your body recover after exercise. Extended, full range, low speed   rope pulling   e xerc ises will improve flexibility and strength train at the same time. 

Your schedule will ensure you get the right amount of each of these types of exercise throughout the week.
