The Battle Rope circle wave is a great alternative to Battle Rope slams and Battle Rope double waves.
The Battle Rope circle wave is one of the more difficult Battle Rope exercises to perform because it are not a movement that most people often train.
For this reason, circles probably won’t be your “go to” Battle Rope exercise but they are a good one to have up your back pocket.
Types of Battle Rope Circle Waves
There are two types of Battle Rope circle waves – “internal / inner circles” and “external / outer circles”.
With both options you can either choose to go
- Bigger, more powerful circles
- Smaller, quicker circles
Internal / Inner Circles are a harder movement to perform, both in terms of difficulty and because you need to focus on making sure the ropes don’t hit each other.
Both alternatives can be performed with either one end of the rope or both ends of the rope.
Like most Battle Rope exercises, circles can be performed in many different positions
- Seated (straddle)
- Seated (L-sit)
Standing usually being the easiest and planking being the most difficult.
Even though the Battle Rope circle wave is a way more difficult exercise and not for everyone, they are a great alternative to Battle Rope slams and Battle Rope double waves.
