How to choose your ROPE for greatest calorie burn

Battling Ropes are a great way to get a total body workout and burn a ton of calories.


I am beginning a new video series called The High Octane Dad.


I thought I’d start the series off by explaining the different types of Battling Ropes available and give my recommendations if you were looking to use them during your next workout OR as a great addition to a home gym.

I thought I’d also explain and show a few different types of full-body exercises you could do either at the gym or at home with Battling Ropes.

For bigger individuals and for anyone looking to build grip strength, I’d recommend the 2″ Rope.


I’d break diameter down like this: 

Kids: 1 to 1.5-inch rope

Women: 1.5 to 2-inch rope

Men: 2-inch rope or above

The rope length is primarily the resistance of the rope.  Obviously the shorter the lighter and the longer the heavier.

If I had to buy just one rope I’d probably get the 40-footer.

It’s universal and could be used for some kids, most women and all men.


I’d break the length down like this:

Kids: 30 to 40 feet

Women: 40 to 50 feet 

Men: 50 feet or more

Since this is a brand new video series, I need your help!
