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:
-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
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.
