Are you ready to try a new battle rope workout that will challenge you like no other battle rope workout has done before? Well get ready because there is something new that has just been released that is university proven to work out better than the battle ropes, it is called the Inertia Wave.
Today, we are talking about something new in the realm of Battle Ropes really. It’s a new invention invented by a guy by the name of Dave Parise, and the product is called the Inertia Wave. There’s a patent on it.
The Inertia Wave is becoming really popular. Whoever buys it, loves it because it gives them the best battle rope workout they have ever experienced. But the thing is a lot of people are still using the Battle Ropes, and they want to know. “Why is this better? How do I use it?”
The Battle Rope vs The Inertia Wave
When you talk about the Battle Ropes versus the Inertia Wave, it’s not an easy explanation because the Battle Rope is basically extreme muscle torque and tension on the wrist and shoulder joints where the Inertia Wave is smooth. It’s rhythmic. It’s coordinated movements. The benefits of the Inertia Wave is that it benefits your entire body and strengthens your core.
The Battle Ropes on the otherhand, it has very limited benefits. It engages the anterior muscles and creates that posture. All the studies show that.
Before the Inertia Wave came out, we only had Battle Ropes. We didn’t know any better. We didn’t know that we were just doing an anaerobic bout. Battle Ropes are no different than strength training. It’s 100% anaerobic. What does it do? It puts a lot of stress and strain on the wrists, rounds out the shoulders or protracts the shoulders, rounds up thoracic spine, makes you look down. Watch somebody doing what’s called a continuous wave. They always kind of have drop their chin and look down, and round up their back. Wherever the head goes, the body follows. I say to myself, “Why are we doing these exercises that are hurting us?” The Battle Ropes are heavy. They’re bulky. They are expensive. They clutter up your workspace. The Inertia Wave on the other hand, has 30 ways to anchor, and you can work out anywhere, any time. It weighs less than 2.7 pounds, and it’s only about nine feet versus the Battle Ropes which is about 50 feet. People don’t realize that.
Another bad thing about the Battle Rope is this… If you’re at a gym – I hate to say it. I don’t want to mention gyms but if you’re at a gym (like a certain “Planet” gym on this planet) and they have these Battles Ropes and you start using them, it’s kind of comical because they are so short. It’s kind of a bloopers tape because the Battle Ropes are really short. The shorter the Battle Rope, it really has no effect on the body whatsoever. It has to be at least 25 feet going each way.
The Battle Ropes are usually 50 feet and then, you double them up. You put them around an anchor point. The problem with putting around the anchor point is that all the energy goes into the floor. It’s not really safe. They’re not a way to enhance cognitive or athletic abilities at all. It frees and unwinds. The plastic-dipped ends fall off. I know somebody out there is laughing at that because it’s always the plastic-dipped ends that fall off. And then we end up putting paper around it to stick into our hands.
How The Inertia Wave Works Better Than The Battle Rope
The caloric burn is a little different. The Inertia Wave works on impedance. There’s what’s called EPOC. It’s a caloric burn. It’s far greater than the Battle Ropes. This is all done by MIT researchers. A Southern Connecticut State University Metabolic Lab’s work shows that we continue to burn calories 24 hours after working with the Inertia Wave or, generally speaking, after doing any type of metabolic conditioning. So it’s a little different because the Inertia Wave is anchored bellybutton high. All the energy like water or electrical charges goes through the tubes, builds up in the tubes, hits the anchor point comes back into the body.
The Battle Rope, as you start this type of battle rope workout, you’re sending all the energy into the anchor point. So whatever it is you’re wrapping it around, whatever the anchor point is; all the energy is going into the anchor point.
Think about it. Did you ever do a battle rope workout and wrap a Battle Rope around an anchor point and whenever you wrapped it around, it starts to shake and rattle? That’s proof right there. That’s basically my dissertation on the difference between the two.
Making A Better Battle Rope Workout
The inventor of the Inertia Wave wanted to come up with something that would burn more calories and have much more engagement on the entire muscle system as well as the inner and outer muscles, core muscle and superficial muscles. He had to come up with something that was more intense than a Battle Rope Workout. He ended up doing it with all these metabolic laboratory tests.
One engineer said using the Inertia Wave was like double under jump ropes with the upper body. I thought that was a cool statement. He just said, “Listen, man. You never do double ropes?” I said, “Yeah, I’m not really that coordinated. I could jump rope but double unders are a little tough for me.” He goes, “That’s what the Inertia Wave is.” He goes, “You’re getting the same benefits of double under jump rope with the upper body.” And that’s cool for some people especially if you have knee problems, hip problems, ankle problems and you can’t jump.
Battle Rope (Inertia Wave) Workout For Beginners
The number one advice is when you receive the product, watch the video links either here on the website or on YouTube.
There are two video links that come when you purchase the product. The video links, one is labeled “The Seven Methods of Use”. The other is “Creative Ways to Anchor Your Inertia Wave”. They’re about 12 to 18 minutes long. My first advice, if you’ve never done anything like that, is to watch the videotapes. It’s a training wheel, step-by-step, hold your hand dissertation on. “Hold the ropes this way or the tubes this way. Walk back. Get into this posture. Start to shake or oscillate the tubes. Listen to the wind sound. It tells you step by step what to do. Everyone to learn these seven methods of use.
7 Methods of Use (Battle Rope Workout)
The following is a description on how to use the Inertia Wave and go through a simulation of a battle rope workout. We do this for specific reasons because we want to engage different muscles in the body, whether you’re training all your back muscles or you’re engaging quadriceps or abdomen. There are all different patterns that the tubes are going through, and they’re kind of pulling your body in a direction but you’re trying to engage and anti-direct your body. There’s always different movement patterns that are very beneficial, that strengthen the entire body, every muscle in the body.
How To Use The Inertia Wave
The first thing I would recommend is basically watch the videos. And then from there, practice just like anything else. Practicing perfectly makes perfect practice. However they say it, you have to practice the Inertia Wave, hear the wind, go into the next method, and just take it step by step. I would also say that if you have an exercise program that you’re doing, let’s say you are typically using a strength training program where you’re training certain body parts in the gym in regards to hypertrophy because the goal is to build muscles or massive hypertrophy, whatever it is or maybe you’re just conditioning like an athlete, you don’t want what they call muscle-bound. You want to stay pliable. You want to stay flexible. I would just recommend using it as part of your conditioning program.
You might do a 30-second bout of the Inertia Wave and do a strength training exercise or a couple of sets of strength training. You might grab the Inertia Wave and do that. It’s what’s called an active rest. Basically, instead of standing there and socializing with your buddies and sipping your water, you’re basically grabbing the Inertia Wave during the rest period and then catching your breath and going back into the strength training. That’s also part of the high intensity interval training. Any way you slice it, you have to learn the seven methods of use and just take your time before you do it because it is extremely intense.
The Inertia Wave can be done by itself. I can actually be done just by itself where you’re actually grabbing the Inertia Wave, you’re doing 30 seconds of a specific method. Let’s say you’re doing 30 seconds Crossfire. When you learn that the method Crossfire or the positioning of the body when you’re doing Crossfire, you might do that for 30 seconds. You might catch your breath. You might do it another 30 seconds. You might catch your breath. You can make it part of that conditioning program. Maybe you’re doing it for 12 minutes. That’s metabolic conditioning. Maybe you’re doing 30 seconds of the Crossfire and then you put it down and you go into a plank, turn around, you do some sit-up type movements, some bridging type movements, some squats, some step to step back lunges. It’s just something to add to your current workout or make it a workout itself. As a workout itself, you want to go as hard as you can, as fast as you can, for as long as you can and then, rest and then, do it all over again. The ultimate goal is to go through all the seven methods.
Here is my basic recommendation:
Four times a week, 12 minutes a day, would be the maximum I would have anybody do the Inertia Wave if you were going to use the Inertia Wave and the Inertia Wave only, with nothing. That is how extreme it is.
What Size and Color is the Inertia Wave?
The Inertia Wave is one size. CrossFit Boxes like it in black. A few of the NFL teams have them and they are blue.
