No matter whether you’re doing CrossFit, martial arts, or just exercising, you’re going to need a good jump rope. A speed rope is another name for this sort of rope. This is an excellent aerobic and endurance workout if you don’t have the time or desire to jog, assuming that your joints are healthy enough to tolerate the impact and you have warmed up and hydrated.
Contrary to common, jumping rope is not a warm-up exercise. The high impact is harmful to a large segment of the population who carry extra weight and suffer from various joint issues.
In its proper place, jumping rope is a wonderful technique to get in shape for fighting or martial arts forms since you don’t do much running but a lot of bouncing, dancing, and jumping.
Although there are various speed ropes with the same ball bearing construction made of plastic, with foam padded handles or even weights, many refer to this wood and leather variant over them.
If you’re looking for something that doesn’t bend, wear or give, the wood handle is the best option. I’ve found that leather doesn’t whip you as hard as plastic does in terms of the rope itself.
The rope will have some kinks in it when it comes out of the packaging, but these will disappear after the first day of use. It has been suggested to soak it beforehand. Some buyers have come across a degradation in rope thickness.
