Time to seriously beat some belly fat up! An effective, unique and powerful way to fight belly fat is by using this battle rope workout. Battle ropes have been around for quite some time now in the fitness world and they are not going anywhere. 

You will always remember the first time you start slamming battle ropes in a workout. It looks somewhat easy but then BAM! If you do battle rope exercises the correct way you should be out of breath and sweating within 25 seconds. 

This battle rope workout uses some athletic, unique and very effective moves that will help you battle belly fat and win! 

Ready to get slamming? Here we go:

How You Do It

Get out a battle rope, I used the one from Gronk Fitness which I highly recommend

Go "all out" for 30 seconds at move #1 

Rest for 30 seconds then go to the next move 

Again go "all out" at move #2 

Rest for 30 seconds and then go to move #3

Go for 30 seconds at each move, that's 1 round 

Repeat for 4 Rounds! 

The Moves 

1. Arm Slam to Roll Throughs

Pretty nifty huh? This one will take you back to the football days. Start in the front plank and slam hard with 1 arm, bust our your ninja abilities and roll to the other side and get back in plank position. Just slam with the opposite hand this time and then bam! Roll back over and repeat. This requires some skill and will definitely burn some big time fat. 

2. Shuffle Slams 

You are going to feel this in your quads a lot more than you think. Stay low and keep your  feet straight as you shuffle. Keep the waves moving with your arms as you shuffle back and forth. Your whole body will be challenged with this one! 

3. Slams to 5 Mountain Climbers 

Slam it hard 2 times and go right to the mountain climbers. The sweat will be building at this point in the workout. Going from the ground and to standing alone is tough but adding in the explosive slam and mountain climb will ensure that fat gets an ass kicking. 

4. Overhead Slams to Single Leg Burpees 

One of my all time favorites right here. Start on one leg and slam away! As soon as your foot comes off the ground you will be forced to use and develop your single leg stability. I cannot express how important single leg stability is. After 5 slams, go down into a burpee and come up on the opposite leg. Repeat that for 30 seconds and your body will be guessing what the hell you just made it do! 

There you go! Study the moves, set it up and lock it in during this entire workout. You will be on your way to fighting the belly fat and winning! 

Chase It!
