If the last time you’ve skipped a rope was in elementary school, get ready for a throwback to your childhood. Although the first thing that comes to mind when one hears the words jumping rope is child’s play, the reality couldn’t be more different. Skipping or jumping rope is actually a really good way to burn some calories (around 200 for 20 minutes of jumping rope) and to have fun while you’re at it. Even though you might have to get the hang of it all over again and try and revisit the glory days, rummaging through your attic for your old jump rope won’t give you the results you expect.
The principle of jumping the rope is always the same, but the right jump rope can make all the difference, and turn playing around into a real workout. Grip Power Pads Speed Jump Rope is a professional jump rope that will help you do some serious cardio and maximize your performance.
The handles on the Grip Power Pads Speed Jump Rope are rubberized and with non-slip texturing, so you don’t have to worry about sweaty hands and disrupting your workout because jump rope keeps falling out of your hands. Although the ergonomic design and great texture of the handles are important for your comfort, what really makes a jump rope great is the quality of the cord. Grip Power Pads Speed Jump Rope has heavy-duty steel cord coated with PVC that’s insanely durable- it won’t stretch out or break like the low-quality ones, and you can put it through just about anything without the fear of damaging it. However, despite being durable, efficient and accurate, the steel cord can sting quite a bit when you mess up your routine, so try to avoid slapping yourself across your legs- trust me, it’s not a pleasant experience.
It’s worth mentioning that, even though jumping rope isn’t something you need to be an expert at, complete beginners will have to pace themselves when working out with Grip Power Pads Speed Jump Rope. Apart from hurting yourself with the cord, you might find it a bit hard to perform more complex jump rope exercises, like jumping jack, running through your jump rope or slalom. If you’re not that familiar with a jump rope, try doing figure eights and single jumps in the beginning, and then move up to more challenging figures.
Working out with a jump rope will help you tone the muscles in your whole body- from the muscles in arms and legs to your abs and behind. Different types of exercise focus on different parts of the body, so, if you’re following a workout routine, pair the jump rope exercise with the workouts you’re doing for that day and maximize your results.
What makes Grip Power Pads Speed Jump Rope different from your regular jump is its overall design, and the optimal 90-degree spinning angle which is what will make jumping rope a total body workout. The angle on this jump rope is designed to maximize the speed, and, unlike with regular jump ropes, you’ll really sweat it out with this one.
Although jumping rope is really great for weight loss, you’ll still have to add another form of exercise and a healthy diet to the mix, if you’re looking to lose weight. Jumping rope can’t be your only workout for the day, and it’s best if you use Grip Power Pads Speed Jump Rope to spice up your routine, or to replace the cardio part of the workout. For example, if you’re not keen on morning jogs, or can’t run due to injury, skipping rope can be a great way to get your heartbeat up without putting too much stress on your knees. But, for optimal weight loss results, you’ll have to follow a balanced diet and exercise more.
In any case, no matter if a jump rope is already a part of your exercise routine, or you just want to change it up a bit, Grip Power Pads Speed Jump Rope is a great choice. The high-quality and fitness-optimized design will make a powerful workout seem like a fun activity and help you get great results with weight-loss.
