Cardio is often considered a difficult yet dull activity. There’s all that repetitive motion, the sweating, the exertion. And while you might find strength training, Pilates or yoga more fun, cardio should still be a part of your fitness routine. After all, improved heart and lung health will only make those other exercises more impactful.
With a little bit of help from the We R Fitness Weighted Skipping Rope, you can enjoy a more dynamic and fun cardio workout, and also reap some upper body workout benefits too.
Unlike our Speed Skipping Rope which has been designed with speed and agility in mind, the Weighted Skipping Rope adds the weight element into the mix, making your arms work harder too.
You are still able to work on your footwork and stamina of course, but skipping with a weighted rope will be a more challenging exercise. If you are just getting into skipping, you might want to try the Speed Skipping Rope first, as it’s lighter and will help you master your skips. Once you have them down, you can graduate to the We R Fitness Weighted Skipping Rope.
It’s 3 metres long but can easily be shortened to meet your needs. The handles are 16 centimetres long and made of comfortable polypropylene that ensures the rope won’t slip from your hands.
It also offers 360-degree rotation, so you’ll be able to execute any skipping variation you can think of.
The We R Fitness Weighted Skipping Rope is a great choice if you want to make your cardio routine a bit more engaging. While it will certainly work your arms too, it’s not quite the same as doing an upper body workout, so don’t forget to add that to your routine too.
