why people like leather skipping ropes

The leather skipping ropes are heavier then other ropes. Usually leather ropes have ball bearing funtions which gives smooth and precise floating movements and faster rope spin . Users can insert or remove the weight from handles. Leather ropes twist less than the PVC ropes. Mostly Boxers and professional Athlets use these Leather skipping ropes give excellent momentum and perfect for indoor and out door skipping.

Jumping rope is a pretty challenging activity. I've tried doing it for just 5 minutes (going about an 8 on the exertion scale) and that 5 minutes felt like it lasted an eternity. My heart was pounding pretty hard and I was winded by the end.

I thought because I've been jogging for a couple of months that I could do 5 minutes without it being too hard, but jumping rope is tough! You really work for all those calories burned!

I decided to incorporate rope jumping into my cardio routine after that experience. If it's hard then it's definitely worth doing!

Great article! I went to Wal*Mart last night and got a rope for around $5 in the Sporting Goods section. And then I picked up a kitchen timer (the kind you wind). I had my first 'session' last night in the garage - set the timer for 10 minutes and maybe had enough wind and strength to jump for 5 of those 10 minutes! Mostly I did 35 revolution sets, but I did do one 50 revolution set. Well it's a start anyway! I bet it would have been funny to watch this 54 year old overweight woman doing that!!! It sure is good cardio - my heart was POUNDING after each set! Thanks for the very helpful info!

Review the Buddy Lee jump rope video for starting. He explains how to start and learn the correct form. It's actually low impact. I have a rebuilt knee and you should really only be jumping about 1-2" off the ground and no concrete surface workouts. Easier on the knees. There is also a really great 10 minute video on Sparkpeople that you should check out also using interval training.

I started using my jump rope about 4 weeks ago, at first I could only do about 8 revolutions without messing up and becoming winded, now I am up to 50-60 at a time. I do it in my barn because I have nice thick rubber stall mats.

I tried this few times, but it's quite tiring to do jump rope for straight 30s. So, I just do 15s-rest for 1 minute. By the way, what do you do during rest? I just walk around, get my breath back :)

I just love jump rope, but I keep skipping the workout. Now, starting back, less stamina so I think I'll try this technique next week, built my confidence as well, haha
