EXERCISE INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Take a rope in each hand, and get into a split-stance with a slight hinge at the hips; this will allow you to generate maximum power.
  2. Raise both ropes to around shoulder-height, and slam them to the ground as hard as you can.
  3. TIP: While not a direct abs exercise, engaging your abs here is a fantastic way to generate even more force.

MUSCLES WORKED BY THIS EXERCISE:

  • Shoulders (Front Delts, Middle Delts, Rear Delts)
  • Abs
  • Legs (Quads)
  • Arms (Forearms; depending on thickness of rope)
