Pros and Cons of Manila Rope

Our Manila Ropes are made from Grade-A high-quality manila fiber which makes them heavy, strong and perfect for an intense cardio/endurance workout. They are heavier than the Poly-Dac versions and about the same as the Double-Braided Nylon (see weight chart on the FAQ). They are less expensive than the poly-dac or nylon ropes, making them a more economical choice if you are on a tight budget. They are also popular for having that old-school “tough” look.

Manila can shed, particularly when new, making these a better choice for outdoors instead of indoors. Note that if exposed to outdoor elements such as rain, they will break down more quickly than the poly dac or nylon versions and will need to be replaced sooner.

Custom Made With Special Features

We custom make our ropes at our production center in Miami, with each one cut and finished to order. Special features include:

  • Heavy Duty Vinyl Handles Every fitness rope comes with heavy-duty vinyl handles on both ends. We make sure those handles will stay attached by using both extra adhesive and stitching between the vinyl and rope – it’s an extra step that you will really appreciate when the handles don’t fall off after a couple of uses.
  • Nylon Guard:Each fitness rope comes with 2 feet of heavy duty nylon fabric sewn to the center of the rope to help prevent fray.

Getting Started with Sample Exercises

Fitness ropes are an intense workout, but they are not complicated to learn or use. And we’ve got a bunch of resources to help you get going. Be sure to watch the video tutorial and read about the benefits of ropes in our article:

The most common ropes exercises include making Waves and Slams, where you are using total body flexion and extension as you slam the ropes down for strength, power and endurance. Waves can be varied in nearly infinite combinations of a wide range of elements:

  • Up-and-Down Waves, Alternating/Reciprocating, Criss-Cross movements;
  • Grappler Toss moves, where you are creating internal and external rotary movements;
  • Incorporating Squats and Lunges, including forward, reverse, and lateral movements as well adding in lower body plyometric movements like jumping squats, lunges and lateral hopping movements;
  • Adjusting your reps and durations, with high intensity interval training being particularly effective with ropes;
  • Train solo and with a partner; you can have another training partner “call out” movements to keep the exercise unpredictable and fresh, increasing your reaction time;
  • Even changing the grip to where the end of the rope is facing up is a great variation with an added challenge;
  • Vary your training position, from standing and kneeling to sitting on a stability ball, or even laying face down doing single arm waves;

Using Longer Ropes

Ropes can also be used for more than undulating (waves). You can also use your ropes for more traditional strength exercises like rows and pull-ups by throwing it over a firm anchor and using it to pull yourself up. This poses an excellent grip challenge with to improve both grip and pulling/rowing strength. The longer ropes (75 or 100 feet) are excellent tools for pulling and dragging sleds and heavier objects. Even a game of tug a war can prove to be quite a full body challenge.
