Skipping has been a favourite pastime for children for many centuries. Skipping is also popularly called jump roping or skipping rope. Jump rope refers to the game itself, as well as the rope used to facilitate jumping.
Nowadays, jump rope isn’t just a game for kids, but can also be used as an adult exercise to help fight heart disease and obesity. Exercising with a jump rope also helps control type II diabetes and osteoporosis whilst improving strength and vigor. Jump rope exercises need to be performed while wearing comfortable aerobic shoes. In modern times one may select from strong fitness and exercise speed ropes with larger grips and heavier cords than the regular children’s jump rope. These ropes are often awkward and unmanageable and not a popular option. Selecting a lightweight rope with foam grips is advisable as this prevents the jump rope from slipping away even when the individual’s palms get moist and sweaty.
Primary producers and manufacturers have adopted new techniques in producing superior beaded and speed style skipping ropes. New varieties include speed single jump ropes, long ropes and double ropes, which are available in a variety of style and color. Jump ropes could be used for school and club sport facilities, private exercise usage or for competitive sports events.
While picking a jump rope, it is necessary to find one with the right length. This differs from person to person. An effective method in choosing the right length is to fold it in half and check whether the handles reach ones armpits from the floor. While jumping over the rope, it should brush the floor beneath your feet. If the cord does not touch the floor, the rope is too short and if it strikes the floor in front of ones feet, the rope is too long.
From heart patients to kids, a jump rope is likely to bring fun, excitement and exercise to all its customers.
