If you like the battling ropes, you will enjoy the H.I.R.T.S. *Battler. The advantage that you will have while using the H.I.R.T.S. *Battler is you will be fighting not only against the weight of the elastic rope, but also the resistance. Battling while keeping the elbows bent in 90 degree angle is the signature exercise of the H.I.R.T.S. *Battler. The ability to train with a partner makes this tool very useful and fun. In our Suples training, we mostly use the H.I.R.T.S. *Battler for our intense interval work outs. By using the strap handles at the end of each band, you can work muscle target training for upper and lower body.
