Anchoring the battle rope whilst pressing overhead adds the additional benefit of resisting the weight of the rope pulling back against the anchor point.

This push/pull movement is excellent for challenging the stabilising muscles of the shoulder joint helping to develop strong, durable shoulders.

To regress an exercise simply move closer to the anchor point to reduce the length and therefore the weight of the rope that’s being pressed.

Tighten the slack of the battle rope by pulling the backwards on the rope ensuring the entire rope is lifted off the floor. Do not row the rope backwards of lean back into the rope with your body weight.
