Learning to jump rope in Crossfit workouts can be a difficult task due to the timing and coordination involved in the movement of single and double under jumps. Learning becomes exponentially more difficult if you are forced to use a rope that is not ideal for your body type or jumping style. In order to effectively learn double unders, you need your own rope that is cut to suit your size and ability. Unfortunately, here at CrossFit Wilmington, we are unable to provide every single person in our classes and open gym with a jump rope that is suited for them. If you want to be able to jump rope proficiently, we highly recommend that you purchase your own rope; fortunately, good jump ropes are fairly inexpensive and can be purchased for $10-15 from a few different sites. The benefits of having your own rope include the ability to practice at home and take it with you on trips. Many improvised travel workouts can be completed with only a jump rope and body weight exercises. Not to mention you won’t have to worry about finding a rope that is long or short enough when CFW programs a double under workout. Affordable jump ropes can be ordered from Muscle Driver here or Again Faster here.
