Improving Mental and Physical Ability Through Aggressiveness Exercises

Aggressiveness exercises are a great way to improve our mental and physical abilities. In our next issues we will cover a few of them.


This drill needs 4 participants. 2 'tug of war' ropes need to be connected in the middle so that 4 ‎ends are available. Each of the participants assumes the crawling position in the middle of the ‎space (whether indoors or outdoors). The rope can be tied around their body, in order to ‎balance the pressure of holding the rope between different parts of the body. The aim of the ‎exercise is to pull the rest, to our side of the space, using only the rope. During this drill we ‎perform the task facing one another. In other words we're trying to crawl backward and take ‎our partners with us. Every partner needs to crawl towards a different direction (one to the ‎North, South, East and the last one to the West).‎


‎1. The only way to influence our partner is through the rope.‎

‎2. It is very important we maintain a play mentality.‎

‎3. We can decide to work in time sets, meaning for example, that for 3 minutes, we ‎continue the drill no matter how many times one of our partners was pulled to the other side of ‎the space. In general, the amount of sets, their duration and the length of time of each set, ‎should be decided upon according to our abilities and endurance level both mentally and ‎physically.‎

‎4. It is worthwhile to choose a space which isn't too big, so pulling our partner to the other ‎side becomes a feasible achievement.‎

5 It is important we look for the aggressiveness inside the exercise rather than the techniques which can be applied. We shouldn't look to achieve our goal through joint-locks or strikes of any sort.

6. When we finish the exercise it is very important to stretch our whole body.
