Sculpting Secret: Battle Rope Burnouts

Why It’s Her Fave: "Using battle ropes between regular lifts allows you to fatigue your muscles while giving you a calorie-busting workout. I combine back and shoulder movements with arms for a complete upper-body routine. Using battle ropes also targets all of those muscles at once."

How To Do It: Hold ends of battle rope at arm’s length in front of you. Stand with feet hip-distance apart, knees slightly bent. Brace core and explosively raise and lower alternate arms. Continue for 30 seconds.
