Developed by respected coach and strongman, John Brookfield, the Battling Ropes System is a complete strength and conditioning program like no other.

John is a multiple world record holder and the author of the popular book, Mastery of Hand Strength. John spent over a year developing this system strictly for himself. He was using this advanced training system to skyrocket his strength and stamina to new heights, despite the fact that John is nearly 53 years old. John has continued to improve setting new records that require strength, endurance, and mental toughness. After using the Battling Ropes for his own personal goals, John decided to show the basics to a few of his friends. They thought that this system was simply the best due to the incredible results that the system produces.

As a student of the Battling Ropes System, you will develop the ability to sustain velocity over time. Velocity is the combination of speed and strength, so you will become stronger and faster when you follow the system.

You will also be able to train or compete at a higher level of intensity due to the training concepts you will learn. The system can be used as a stand-alone system or be implemented into other training methods.

As a coach or trainer, you will find that the Battling Ropes is very safe, it produces great results, and it has an easy learning curve.

The system has different concepts which are velocity, strength endurance, push/pull strength, the power phase, as well as partner and team training methods. You will learn how to train yourself, clients, groups, teams, and units in a safe, fun, productive manner.

You will also see that the Battling Ropes can be implemented by all ages and fitness levels. Last but not least, the Battling Ropes can never be mastered, and you can and will continue to learn and challenge yourself to improve physically and mentally.

The Battling Ropes is the only training method that forces the user to sustain velocity and strength endurance overtime. This course will truly help you climb to a higher level in your own fitness level or sport as well as your clients or teams level!!

Battling Ropes is So Much More Than “Waves”

Whether you are a coach, competitive athlete, trainer, or elite military, you will walk away with the best training edge imaginable that will take you, your team or clients past the next level.

By learning the Battling Ropes concepts you will walk away with a whole new group of tools for your toolbox that can be implemented right away.

The Battling Ropes training is demanding, effective, humbling, forgiving, and safe all rolled into the same package.

You will learn the principles of true velocity training, which is rarely spoken of let alone understood. This velocity training is the most missing link in training and also the most result-producing concept that will transfer into your individual battlefield.

John Brookfield has researched the velocity concept hands-on for many years now and has developed different methods to produce tremendous results using these methods. He is constantly pushing himself to develop the best methods and also take his own physical and mental prowess to the highest level.

You do not know what’s there until you step into the water. These methods are there and do exist and can be learned and transferred into your sport or battlefield. This is perfect for coaches, personal trainers, boot camp instructors, and just about anyone that is looking to gain an edge on the competition.

Frequently asked questions:

The Battling Ropes system is unlike any other training methods due to the non-momentum effect. For example, with other methods such as barbells, dumbbells, and kettlebells, gravity takes over as the weight goes back towards the ground. During this time when gravity takes over, momentum is used, which gives the body and mind a chance to relax. With the Battling Ropes training, velocity is used and must be maintained throughout the training. This forces the user to train or compete at a higher level of intensity which will last longer durations of time.
The system was created by John Brookfield, who was using and developing the system for his own needs. John basically created the foundation of the Battling Ropes from the concept of a hurricane where the constant flow of the waves gave him the idea to create a series of waves with the ropes.
Much research was used to come up with the 50-foot rope as the standard rope for the velocity training. The 50-foot rope allows someone to progress properly through the system and continue to get results. Also, we start younger athletes on the standard 50-foot ropes due to the visual motivation factor. For example, if you have a fourteen-year-old female athlete who can’t roll the wave or waves all the way to the end, she has the visual motivation and can see what the goal is. After a few workouts, she can see her waves getting stronger and going farther. This, of course, is very motivating and forces her to work harder.
The 100-foot ropes are used for the Pole system, which is the strength endurance phase of the system.
The poly ropes are a non-shed synthetic rope which are water-resistant and made for long life and durability. They do not shed fibers and are perfect for inside use where you don’t want the shedding. The traditional Manilla ropes are like the ones people used to climb in gym class. They are durable, however, do not last as long as the poly ropes. They do shed some fibers at times and are good for outside training or training in a garage or basement.
You will immediately enjoy and see the tremendous benefits of the training. However, velocity training is a missing link in training and will be challenging. With some steady work and determination, your body will start to adjust to the velocity training, and you will see results that will transfer into your sport or personal battlefield.
Yes, there are actually seven different elements and concepts to the Battling Ropes system. The first concept is maintaining velocity, which is the sustaining of the waves with the ropes. The second concept is the strength endurance phase, which is the Pole System training. The other five methods have not been released yet.
