Rope Workout

Rope Workout

When you think of a rope, you picture a dozen kids playing tug of war. But there's a new rope workout, and it's not all fun and games.

Personal trainer JC Guidry says using the ropes will increase a person's stamina, burn as many calories as doing sprints and work as a heat alternative exercise for those with back or knee problems.

JC shares ways to use the rope workout to tone your target areas below.
