Ooh, exciting day today. Got home from work to find an Amazon parcel on my doorstep. Awesome, my new Crossfit jump rope is here!
As you might know, I’ve been getting pretty serious with Crossfit to shed a few of the pounds that have crept up on me while working in a desk job. Don’t get me wrong, I love the Same Day Loans business, but sitting a desk all day really is no good for you.
One of the common exercises at Crossfit is skipping, and you need to be able to do Double Unders. This is pretty hard with the gym ropes as they’re all different lengths. You really need your own jump rope. So now I’ve got my new Inspired Fitness Jump Rope, I can start practicing at home and perfecting my double unders.
So what do I like about this rope? First impressions are that the quality is really good. It’s got nice smooth ball bearings and a sturdy, solid feel, even though it’s really light weight. The cable seems strong and light, and the adjustment is really easy with finger-tight adjustment screws. I just need to get the length right and trim it with a pair of pliers.
I’ll write a few more words once I’ve had a good hard workout at the Crossfit box, but from the few goes I’ve had at home,it’s a pretty awesome jump rope. I like it!
