hey i watched a couple videos on youtube of gyms posting like workouts and stuff and it seems like this battling rope stuff is getting pretty popular, at least to me.

What is this exercise for, i see there are uncountable variations of how to use it but from what i see it looks like a great way to get conditioned and burn some ridiculous calories.
What you guys know about this thing

Its a great workout. A new, fresh cardio type workout and obviously conditions the upper body. A lot of Crossfitters and combat sports athletes are using it. John Brookfield has done a book (maybe a dvd also?) on it.

great piece to add to GPP day...I prefer the 1.5 over the 2"inch. It's all abbot speed and power. 20sec on 10 off x20
