You may not box like a heavyweight champ, but that shouldn’t stop you from training like one. This sturdy jump rope provides a classic alternative to your everyday cardio, with a simple design that screams “Rocky,” not “double-dutch.” Stick it in your gym bag to change up your routine, or take it traveling for a quick hotel workout.
How it Works
With heavy wooden handles and a PVC rope, this accessory was built to see serious action. While it may be years (or decades) since you last used a jump rope, a few quick sessions will have you skipping like a pro.
How to Use
To perfect your jumping technique, take a cue from Mohammad Ali. Keep your body loose, your legs together, your elbows by your sides. Hop on the balls of your feet, and try not to overexert: Remember, the movement should come from your wrists and ankles.
