Disclosure: Muscle Ropes, Under Armour and GNC are clients of my company, FitFluential. I was provided with the product but all opinions are my own.
What's UP my peeps? I am psyched to share this post. Why? Because now I have all the tools, I understand all my new training, I have the program, the plan, I asked Mark all of my up front questions and it is ON. And -- I shot a few videos about this already but I do believe this next chapter is going to wow me. My doubts are hitting the backburner, now that I have experienced the "cardio" that Mark has designed for me and the 2nd circuit blast he designed. Holy Crabcakes it is intense, it is hardcore and it WORKS MY CORE OMG.
So---- for tonight I want to focus on, truly, one of my ABSOLUTE favorite new pieces of fitness fun. TRULY TRULY I cannot imagine anyone NOT wanting their own set of Muscle Ropes. I knew I would love these things-- haven't we all seen them in maybe a Crossfit Box or a gym--- but (I will sound like an infomercial here) NOW YOU CAN HAVE ONE AT HOME!! ;-) But for real......it's so timely that I am reviewing this now right as all of my training is changing and now I will use these in all of my workouts. YOU GOTTA GET YOU SOME.
So this is my new playground-- my toys for my new training. And the Muscle Ropes are substantial, I'm told they weigh 20lbs total for this model. I've had kettlebells for a while but have not used them in ages, I've had my Ultimate Sandbag for a while (now with options for travel hello) and I just bought the foam roller and Mark gave me a tennis ball for glute pain I mean myofacial stretching or something. Take a peek at Mark demo-ing the Muscle Ropes for me Monday:
Yea...this is no joke. He had me doing a walk through of my new "cardio" and it was like do this move for as long as it takes to get your heart rate up to 85% max, then stop. Let the heart rate come down to x then do the next move or the same move. I was screaming loud things when he had me doing the Muscle Ropes thing. It's fun. Like when you throw down a huge Dynamax ball on the ground. That's fun too. I like aggressive things like this don't judge me. Now-- he also demoed for me some other moves that I felt compelled to share with you. Enjoy this Valslide move:
RIGHT?? And this:
So. The plan is 5 days a week ONLY-- 3 days of my strength training and 2 days of the cardio plan. OMG. And yet, I am seeing the intensity, I am seeing how much this is going to change my body-- yea, there is still part of me inside, first of all missing running of course but feeling like "I should be doing a ton of cardio" but the feeling of these workouts and the new DOMS associated with working muscles you haven't in a while....it's exciting.
Now on the Muscle Ropes side-- I'm including some of the links to other posts from other FitFluential Ambassadors because I think you'll see the flexibility in this product and how all these different people are mixing it up and loving it. SERIOUSLY like, this plus the Valslides plus Ultimate Sandbag and Kettlebells- that's a home winning badass gym that can change everything for you. I've had the other stuff for a while but now this, I am just I think you can tell ridiculously in love. What do you think??
And Miss Kristin shows her version with the jump rope option HERE. I am Kristin's biggest stalker because I am obsessed with her recipes. But Miss Colavechhio and Kasey (Powercakes) are in there too, frankly so many of these ladies should have their own cooking show for fitness fanatics. We're working on that. ;-)
So, I will "summarize" by saying. I love Muscle Ropes. I am obsessed with them. I will use them every day and brag about it a lot. And pretty much everyone that sees them wants them. So - are you gonna dive in?? What do you think?
Finally, check out what bada** Mr. Jeremy did with his ropes-- people listen when he speaks. Just sayin. CLICK HERE. Below is (so behind on blogging and posting videos here sorry) a ramble-on-a-thon FROM right before I got the throw down From Dowdell and Roussell, so keep that in mind. I was doing my old focus and things changed, but it's cool cuz it talks about the UA39 too.
And at night I am IN LOVE IN LOVE IN LOVE with this, because @RangerDutch told me it is great for recovery but puts him to sleep LET ME TELL YOU IT WORKS and I never take Advil PM every night. Seriously. AMAZING. AMAZING. AMAZING and it tastes great.
Do you have problems sleeping? Probably not after watching my videos right?? ;-)
