Using old fire hose for battle ropes is just as effective as the real thing.
Firefighters have always known this. Trust us on this one. When it comes to fitness, your body doesn't know the difference between fancy and expensive ropes or an old fire hose. Weight is weight, no matter how it's distributed across the length of a battle rope or fire hose.
YOU DO NOT NEED TO BUY AN EXPENSIVE BATTLE ROPE.
Bottom line: hard work is what helps you achieve your fitness goals, not fancy equipment. Think of the old Rocky movies where the boxer is hauling timber and boulders through the mountains in preparation to fight his counterpart. That's character!
The exercise itself is wildly popular for good reason; it works and gives results. It's a strenuous full body movement designed activate all the core muscles in your body, not to mention the cardiovascular benefits. How you achieve that movement makes absolutely no difference to your body. Everything you need packed into a short workout duration.
All these benefits make it a desirable exercise around the fire house or even in your own back yard (nobody wants to invest in a home gym).
