If you look around the internet, there are hundreds of pages advertising battling ropes or battle ropes and about a dozen more variations (undulation ropes, exercise ropes, heavy ropes, workout ropes, fitness ropes, etc…). This can lead to lots of confusion but I’ll try and give a little history and dispel a little of the myth
The idea behind rope training is most often attributed to a man by the name of John Brookfield who developed his own system of rope training known as “Battling Ropes”. His trademarked “Battling Ropes” system has been used with countless athletes including players in the NFL as well as members of the US Olympic Bobsled team, namely Ingred Marcum who stars in some of the Battling Ropes DVD’s and could pretty muck kick anyones ass. In the DVD’s John Brookfield and Ingred Marcum go through a few dozen ways to use battling ropes to increase strength and stamina, and demonstrate the ways battling ropes improve explosive movements.
From John Brookfield the Battling Ropes spread like wildfire into different areas of strength training and conditioning, and since “Battling Ropes” is a trademarked system, the ropes themselves had to take on new names which is why you’ll hear them called battle ropes, workout ropes, or heavy ropes. While John Brookfield focused on perfecting the workout which we are extremely grateful for.
So in short no matter what you call them they are just a heavy rope made mostly from nylon with rubber grips
