Jump ropes: once the hot recess item of elementary school girls. Now, the hot cardio workout item of adult gym rats. And, while we still appreciate a good game of Double Dutch, these modern, weighted jump ropes are true beasts engineered to help you get lean and strong.
Not only is the jump rope an incredibly efficient workout tool, according to Men’s Journal, it’s also extremely versatile. It’s perfect for an easy, at home workout in your living room. Or pack it in your work tote and sneak out for a quick hop on your lunch break.
Grab the Jump Rope bundle , which features two different rope sizes and a Bosue ball, and get cracking. And lest you think it’s just a bunch of jumping up and down while twirling a rope, here are some great jump rope workout alternatives we've rounded up for you:
