Hey LABABLA! emoticon

Mock jumping still gets that heart rate up... and there's so many pro's to jumping without rope ha. I think it's great that you've still been jumping even without a rope!
I would love to be able to do double unders... I've only ever done them without a rope so you've given me a new challenge right there! I'd also love to jump in my sports bra... I don't know if that will ever happen though hehe, maybe one day!

Crossrope looks brilliant... It looks like a super tough workout. The endless ropes! Yes, expensive shipping to Europe... maybe it will come down in the future. Even just using the styles at crossrope with my regular jump rope will keep me busy and challenged for a while! :)

Hi LABABLA! That little video on the Crossrope website is amazing, double unders and triple unders! You used to do double unders. I bet you'll be doing them again soon. I have yet to do even one successful double under. Every time I miss using my cable rope, I get a painful welt. Makes me not want to practice something I know I'll miss a lot with. I would so like to do them! You've done them and will do them again no doubt! On the Crossrope website, they are selling cable ropes of various weights. I have never seen a heavy cable rope before. I like the idea of a weighted rope rather than weighted handles. You've got me thinking how to make such a rope myself. I bet it is tricky. When I got a replacement cable for my worn out rope, I found there was something strange about it. I missed a lot. I couldn't figure out what was going wrong. I ended up ordering a replacement cable, the exact the same Rogue cable rope I had been using, and it works great. In the past I used a rubber rope. I must have burned through 3 of those. One replacement rope, the exact same model as the others, also didn't work well and I missed a lot. I thought there was something wrong with me, or the ball bearings, or....now I think it was the actual rope itself. I love problem solving and I love making things myself so if you figure out how to make one, I'm all ears. Anyway, welcome back to real rope jumping.

Heiya team!
I was getting back to jumping rope when I started to BodyRock 2 years ago. I have mostly been doing it with an invisible rope for several reasons:
-low ceiling
-no interruption when you "fail" (no toe accident...if you see what I mean)
-no dangers for kids around
-can't stop moving arms for 2-3 rounds if needed and continue with feet
-no hurting myself or others
-don't have to worry if I forgot the actual rope
etc...
BUT when I actually try to do jump rope I feel it is not exactly the same. Well I am gonna get back into real jump rope soon (progressively) in safe appropriate places.
I used to be able to do double-unders and backward,etc... back in the days;)
20 years ago I did get a gym workout "skipping"...the best ever gym class I came across (was really out of standards at the time, and gess would still be nowadays as haven't seen such a class in any gym recently around).First time I was wearing a standard cotton T-shirt and classic pants. next time I was wearing same as others...just a bra and shorts...breathable please!

Today I came across CROSSROPE.com.... check it out, looks AWESOME. Anyone tried.
I may first weigh the ropes I have and try to make something similar DIY style as they are rather expensive + shipping to Europe.
