Speed Rope Buying Guide

Are you in the market for a new speed rope, but unsure what to look for? Some people will tell you that the rope doesn’t matter and that you should be able to do double unders with any rope. While this may be true for the super athlete, for us mere mortals, equipment does matter. Think of it this way, could you complete a lap at the Indianapolis 500 in a Fiat? Technically, yes but wouldn’t you prefer a Lamborghini to make your task easier? The same concept applies to speed ropes. While there is definitely skill involved, using a quality speed rope, and the same one continuously, will go a long way in helping you conquer your double unders.

Conquering the Mythical Double Under

The first and easiest step, is getting an appropriate speed rope. Of course, Chris Spealler can use an old school jelly rope that is sized for a six-footer and he will be able to crank out double unders no problem, but we are not Chris Spealler. No worries though, because once you hone your craft through consistency and repetition, you too will be able to successfully jump with any rope. We just aren’t quite there yet.

Just Start

tarting to do some form of exercise is certainly better than nothing. Many people who haven’t worked out in a very long time, if at all are often intimidated by the thought of going to a gym, starting CrossFit, or running a race. They often feel everyone else is better and there is no way they will ever be able to get to that level.
