I've heard about this from a SP buddy. Maybe to avoid tripping and still get the benefit of jumping, the rope-less jump rope is recommended? Never seen the rope, though, I wonder how does it function that makes people still feel like jump with a rope!

Once I saw on tv, Doctor Oz, a "jump rope" with no rope! The handles were weighted some way, and they worked the same as if they were connected by a rope!
I was thinking it might be a good way for me to begin, since I'm older and "weighty" and wouldn't want to trip on the rope and fall when I'm just starting out...especially since I don't know whether I'll even be able to get my feet off the ground!!! :D

I have looked for such a thing, but without luck. Have you heard of them?
What do you think?
