What’s your favorite type of jump rope? I’ve tried a leather one, which I didn’t like, a cheap plastic rope, and one of those speed ropes that have the bearings in the handle…
What have you tried? What works well for you? I’m not looking for a souped up version to do the work for me, just what others find comfortable and fun to use.
Believe it or not I use an old one that I’ve had for years. Wooden handles with a real “rope” between them.
I agree with you, I tried two different types and neither felt right. One of them was quite expensive, I got a video along with it. It was a gift from my wife, so I had to try it. Went back to my old one.
I usually jump for one minute then one minute off. Sometimes I count reps. Go for 100 then rest for about a minute.
It’s a great tool on those rainy or cold days.
