Good morning!

Happy Monday.

 

Today was the first morning I felt like it was actually chilly enough to want hot coffee. I love it when that change happens.

I decided on a very strong 1/2 coconut milk 1/2 almond milk cinnamon latte.

Obviously I had to go with one of my coolest mugs.

So, for this fine Monday morning I have a new workout toy and a new workout for you.

Fun, yes?

I was sent this indoor Giant Jump Rope by Muscle Ropes.

Obviously I couldn’t wait to try it out. Our house is a bit on the small side and at any given time of day there are usually quite a few toddler toys lying around, so using this Giant Jump Rope at home isn’t going to happen.

So, I took it to the gym.

My first experience with this giant jump rope went pretty well.

It was a bit intimidating. I mean look at the thickness of this thing.

It took a bit of getting used to and finding my rhythm, but holy cow it is ever a good workout.

I felt it in my arms, legs, core, you name it.

When I do regular jump rope I usually do it in 1 minute intervals and see how many jumps I can do.

This Giant Jump Rope will take me a little while of working up to it to get there.

Ha ha.

 

I suckered my friend Alexia to play with me a bit with this amazing new rope.

I made her try it first because I’m nice like that.

Then it was my turn.

The rope is pretty heavy and you really have to use your arms and build up some momentum to get it all the way around. I hit myself quite a few times while experimenting.

But, the options of things you can do with this are pretty great. I stuck with regular jumping and some figure eight rotations, but when I get better I’ll start so alternating leg jumps and such.

 

So here’s the workout I came up with.

Giant Jump Rope Workout

I’m hoping I can get a little better at it and be able to go 4 times through rather than just 2 or to be able to get to 30 of each move instead of 20, but for now, this is a pretty good starting point.

20 basic jumps.

20 figure 8 rotations.

(I totally felt these a lot in my obliques. They are awesome.)

Yeah, 20 of each was about all I could pull off the other night after teaching classes, but I’m going to keep trying to work up to more.

The Giant Jump Rope and I have to take things slow with our new relationship you know.

Here’s a video of the workout and a little taking product review at the same time. 

Why yes, you DO need a Giant Jump Rope.

A couple of additional notes:

Yes, I do almost take myself out with the rope, however I have learned that it doesn’t hurt that bad. He he.

The rope handles are constructed really well. The use an industrial strength adhesive that will last for years.

In addition to the Giant Jump Rope, Muscle Ropes has a huge selection of other ropes including climbing ropes and utility ropes.

I really want this Cyclone one to use in boot camp. Oh man, could we do a good workout with it. Adding it to my wish list.

On the Muscle Ropes website they have some great workouts for any skill level with some videos of basic moves to get you started and some other more intense moves to try.

Their videos are much better than my rope workout one from IDEA.

Some of my fellow FitFluential ambassadors got the standard Muscle Ropes and created some really great workouts.

Whelp, there you go friends.

Why yes, in my opinion everyone needs a Giant Jump Rope. He he.

 

 

Have a wonderful Monday!

    Haha, I feel like I’d definitely knock myself out with that thing. I’m not a skilled jump roper, so I’m not sure that adding weight would be good for my brain. And I ALWAYS have hot coffee. I get sort of sick when I drink a cold coffee drink.

    Whew! Looks hard. :) I rarely use the ropes at my gym, but they’re the longer anchored ones.

    Awesome looking workout – great tool for taking training out to a park too!
