Good stuff as usual. I don’t have any experience of how boxers train jump rope especially for fat loss. I’m fairly comfortable with Double Unders and do them several times a week setted with burpees ( doing the 100 burpee a day for 100 days at moment) as a way of breaking up the burpees. Just wondering what sort of numbers or workout you’d suggest if you were looking at using DUs in a fat loss programme so that they’re actually an effective exercise?? I enjoy doing them anyway but I’d be interested to find out more.
The level of awareness you use for clearing the rope could also be used as offensive or defensive awareness in the ring. A boxer that jumps rope will be far more alert at his resting rhythm and move with a more natural quickness than one that doesn’t. The jump rope is a great exercise for developing your overall athleticism and cannot be substituted with anything else.
I own this rope myself and for what you get, it’s the best value in a jumping rope for what you get. Personally I do prefer the slightly slower, non 90 degree connector found in something like the TKO or AM PRO ropes, or better yet, the expensive Buddy Lee , but the AM PRO are not found in the US, and the Buddy Lee is 5 times the cost, so for lack of better alternatives, I give this Boxers Jump rope the nod here for value and performance.
Trust me — as someone who’s trying to master the jump rope (and trying very hard to learn all the various tricks to make my boxing jump rope work much more interesting and dynamic) — I can tell you from experience that your choice of jump rope make a HUGE difference to your jump performance and your overall rope training.
