The Original HeavyRope is a weighted jump rope allowing an athlete to gain both a cardiovascular & upper-body strength workout in one. Its available in 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6 pound weights. A suggested training program is included with each rope. Each rope is 8' in length.
Regardless of the style of rope you choose, ensure it's long enough to allow you to jump with ease. Ten-foot ropes are acceptable for most people, but if you're significantly shorter than 6 feet tall, a 9-foot rope is probably more suitable. If you find your rope is too long, untie the rope inside each handle and retie the knot to make it shorter. In the event you can't find a weighted handle jump rope, place a 1-pound wrist weight around each wrist to get a similar workout.

Do you remember jumping rope in the 3rd grade? It was fun, wasn’t it? Well it is still fun as a grown up, and jump ropes from Power Systems can add a whole range of benefits to your current exercise routine. Make no mistake, using a jump rope is intense, and you probably won’t be able to do it non-stop for 10 minutes unless you are very well trained. However, jumping rope can be alternated with lower intensity activities, adding both variety and excellent physical training to your usual workout. You can also use special ropes from Power Systems, such as weighted jump ropes, speed ropes, double Dutch jump ropes and Chinese jump ropes for even more variety in your routine.
