Single rope jumping or rope skipping is a popular form of cardiovascular exercise. This exercise originated with prizefighters to help develop their lungs and legs.
With little balls attached to short lengths of cord replacing the full handle-to-handle connection, this ropeless jump rope maintains the feel and delivers the effect of the standard version, but eliminates the need for a wide open surrounding space and bodily coordination. Its digital keypad tracks time and number of jumps, plus estimates calories burned base on the user's height and weight.
A proper jumping rope will not cost you more than what you’d pay for a pizza. The best thing about it is that you don’t have to crack your head over looking for expensive brands in order to get highest quality ropes. Even the most inexpensive ropes will provide you the same benefits of skipping anyway. You just have to ensure that the rope you select doesn’t get tangled up easily.
