Battling Ropes of Death

Written by Jason Ferruggia Topics: Uncategorized


Great workout tonight. Did some rowing, squatting, shrugging, etc. and finished with the battling ropes of death. I have gained back about 20 of the 48lbs that I lost and am feeling pretty good. The shoulder is coming along and I am happy at this weight. Gaining another 30 pounds on top of this is probably something that I won’t be doing. I’ll see how I feel as I progress but I feel very good being lighter. My natural adult weight is only about 165 at an even six feet tall and my wrists are only slightly bigger than six and a half inches. Carrying an extra 65 pounds around for all those years probably led to some additional wear and tear on my body and would continue to do so if I gained it all back. We’ll see what happens…

Anyway, here is a clip of the battling ropes from tonight. And also the aftermath.

And the aftermath… Unfortunately we didn’t capture the main blast on film, but the end was still entertaining.
