Speed Jump Rope Review
Jumping rope is such a great way to get some cardio in. It's a fun and easy exercise that can be done almost anywhere. I remember spending the whole time at recess when I was little jumping rope with the other girls. I still enjoy to this this day. I just don't remember all the fun little songs we used to sing as we jumped! This was a fun review to do since I got a bit of sweat time in too!
This jump rope is light weight and of good quality. I really like that it is adjustable. It comes standard at 10 ft but with a quick snip using my husband's wire cutters I had them adjusted to the length I needed. Scissors will not work because it is a pretty strong wire under there. It has little caps on the end that keep it from fraying if you do need to clip it like I did. It also has little screws that keep the rope in place in case you need to adjust for another user. It was easy enough for my younger boys to adjust themselves since they needed it a bit shorter. Just be sure the screws are tight.
What I really like about it is how nicely it fits in my hands. It's very comfortable to hold onto. I also like that you can really go fast with it. I can't last too long at super fast speed but it's nice knowing I can do quick bursts to ramp up my heart rate even for a bit. It has 4 high-grade metal ball bearings which help it to turn faster.
This is a really nice jump rope for anyone wanting to get in a great workout. It is easy to take anywhere because it comes with a nice nylon bag to carry it in. Just by using it to do 50-100 jumps a few times a day will help blast the fat away! You can find this jump rope on Amazon.
