Beast Battle Rope Partner Workout
One of the most commonly asked question about the Son of the Beast is what do you anchor it to? Not everyone has a Performance Station handy and just hanging around. No matter what you anchor the Son of the Beast to just make sure it’s sturdy, so why not use a friend?
This is the perfect product to use with a partner because there are two ropes with handles at each end. Just make sure you chose someone who is about equal strength as you. Don’t overcompensate and try to compete against the strongest person at the gym; all this does is risk you getting pulled over. The point is to get a workout, not being constantly reseting because you couldn’t match up.
We love this workout because it will help motivate you to work harder. Get a buddy that will push you to go harder instead of help you slack off. This is sure to challenge you, but it mainly is meant to be fun. Of course you will be challenge, but work with your partner to keep going and motivate each other through each movement.
These movements are not meant to be easy. They are meant to challenge you, so test them with each other to know how much tension you need and what pace you set so neither of you quit early. If you set your own pace and are not in tune with your partner then you will struggle and the workout will feel uncomfortable. So set a pace that works for each of you and can keep you going strong but also will challenge you. Once you’re ready, give this workout a go.
Find Your Space
The Son of the Beast can be taken anywhere, but they do require some space to be performing any movements. The ropes are 10 feet long and you need to make sure you have tension on the ropes when you perform each movement. So in likelihood you will probably need about 12 feet of space to do this workout.
However, you can take these anywhere. There may not be enough room in the average home, but now that the weather is warmer so you may take your ropes outside and workout. Just remember to not store them in the sun to maintain the integrity of your band. But wherever you have a large amount of space, get the ropes, a buddy and get going.
- Push Ups
- Alternating Jumping Lunge with Row

This is a great workout to get your heart rate up involve your friends. It’s moderately difficult, be sure to not cheat on the slam movements. The Crossover Slams especially cannot be cheated or the rope will not hit the ground.
