In my opinion, everyone should have their very own jump rope.  Lately I have been asked a lot about where to get them, which one to get, where did the buddy lee’s goooooo?  Here’s the skinny:

Essentially a build-your-rope deal, you submit your perfect length and choose from several cable weights.  I like these ropes.  The handle feels good and once you get the wrists going, the rope can get pretty fast.  If you are just learning to jump rope and just starting double unders, I would go with a medium to light weight cable.  I think the feedback from the rope is critical in the beginning, ie, you know where you are in relation to the rope.  Remember as you get better and more efficient you might want a lighter, faster rope, so go with something you can “grow” into.

Here they are!  People swear by these, they spin pretty damn fast and have those groovy long handles.

These are serious.  With nothing more than a thin cable and a ball bearing it can leave some serious lashings if you’re not proficient in jumping rope.   I love it because it’s light and fast and my arms don’t tire out the way they used to.  If you are a newbie, I might hold off on this one.  Feedback is pretty non-existent as you can’t see or feel the rope as much, you have to rely on your skillz.

Once you get your rope, watch and practice a little everyday.  Here’s the bubbly Buddy Lee on the double under. (mov)(wmv)
