A lot of folks like to start their New Year with a resolution to get into shape. Whether that’s you or not, there’s nothing like getting a good workout in during the day. Especially if you do it from home. Avoiding the trip to an overcrowded gym that costs way too much to get into is only a benefit in our eyes. But there is some work that needs to be done in getting a suitable home gym set up.
Space is something you have to take into account when you set up a home gym. There are plenty of pieces of equipment out there one can get for the home. But if it can’t fit, then you’re outta luck. Once you figure out what kinda workouts you wanna do and what that requires, you start hunting. But no matter what workout you want to do, there’s nothing like having a jump rope in your life.
A jump rope is great for many reasons. Maybe the biggest is how little space it takes up. You just roll it up and put it away when it’s not being used. Simple. But really, the best thing about it is how simple it is to use while offering you a ton of health benefits. You get some muscle toning in your lower body. You build up your stamina and your reflexes. You can use it in many different kinds of workouts, from boxing to CrossFit and the like.
Buying a jump rope isn’t all that simple anymore. Sure, you can buy an old-school jump rope that will help improve your speed and your agility. But now there are weighted jump ropes to take into account. The heavier the rope, the more muscle you build. You’ll still see speed and stamina improvements, but it’s really the strength improvements that skyrocket. Depending on what you are looking to do, you got many options to work with.
To help you guys whittle down the options, we have gone ahead and picked out some fantastic weighted jump ropes. For you guys that wanna build up strength with some equipment that won’t take up so much space, we got you covered. Each item we picked falls under a different category.
