Choosing the Right Training Rope
Training ropes most commonly come in three lengths (30, 40 or 50 feet) and two thicknesses (1.5" and 2"). The size you should get depends on two main factors: your fitness goals, and the amount of space you have.
The thicker the rope, the more weight the rope carries. The length of the rope allows for a more fluid motion. 2" diameter ropes require bigger hands and a stronger grip strength. If you're looking for high intensity, cardio blasting workouts, the 1.5" diameter battle rope is probably the best choice. These ropes will allow you to go hard, maintain a solid grip, and will fit perfectly into a circuit training workout. If your goal is muscle building, the 2.0" diameter rope might be better. The thicker diameter does require a stronger grip to maintain control of the battle rope, but can give a serious workout.
Shorter ropes aren’t as fluid, but they allow for smaller spaces. Because your rope will essentially be folded in half at an anchor point or wrap around a bar or tree, you need a straight line that is half the length of your rope. For a 50' rope you'll need 25 feet of clear space. The most common length is 50 feet. A 50' battle rope leaves you with 25' in each arm, which is a great length for creating momentum-filled waves for a smooth, low-impact workout.
The most versatile length and diameter is the 50 foot & 1.5" diameter rope. The longer length will be the most fluid and versatile, and the 1.5” grip will be the easiest to hold and use.
