Battling Ropes

Battling Ropes

Today I wanted to perform an exercise that I haven’t done in a long time and this is, battling ropes. Battling ropes are a tough exercise but it is a great workout.

Battling ropes are very good for building shoulder strength, core strength, and strength within your defensive stance.

Here is a list of the exercises I did:
1. Double slams: small, medium, and high slams
2. Alternate slams: small, medium, and high slams
3. Side to side
4. Make circles with the rope: both directions

Below you can view a short video I filmed to demonstrate for you on how to battle the ropes. This will allow you could get a visual of what the different rope exercises are.

I challenge you to give battling ropes a try. These ropes give you such a great workout!

Happy Lifting

Much love,

Back to School Breakfast Idea

jaetaft.com

Every morning I like to start the day off right with a yummy, nutritious breakfast. This morning I was in a mood to cook and ideas were flowing through my head. I decided to make quiche in a muffin tin. Basically it is egg muffins. I made a fluffy pancake to go underneath the quiche. For my side dish I put a bunch of fresh fruit in a bowl and finish it up with a glass of orange juice.

Breakfast is very important, especially on a busy school morning. You may not have time before school to make this exact breakfast idea, but at least grab some fruit or a piece of toast with peanut butter. You might even consider making it the night before and simply warm it up in a toaster over.

It was a lot of fun making this breakfast creation and even more fun eating. Give this back to school breakfast idea a try!

Enjoy!
