The Advantages of using a Weighted Speed Rope
If you are not aware of the advantages of using it in your exercise routines then you are really missing out. These are the major benefits to you:
Develop your Upper Body Power
There is a difference between power and strength. By rotating a heavy weighted rope around you it will help you to develop more power in your forearms, your back and your shoulders. You need both upper body strength and power.
It helps you to learn quicker
It doesn’t matter if you are a complete beginner when it comes to skipping. Using this will help you to get your timing spot on as you experience it around your body.
A heavy weighted rope is going to spin more slowly than one that isn’t weighted. This means that it is easier for you to learn the correct form with your skipping as you can maintain a good arc more easily.
You will burn more calories
You may already know that skipping is one of the best ways to burn calories quickly. It beats jogging and cycling hands down. It’s possible to burn twice the amount of calories skipping than it is running over the same time period. Adding weights can help you burn even more calories.
Engages your Muscles more
When you use a regular skipping rope without the additional weight you will work your hamstrings, shoulders, glutes and lower back. Using a heavy weighted one will also do this and it will also work your other back muscles, your forearms and your triceps.
With a weighted jump rope you will extend your exercise options. They are great for a full cardio workout and you can also use them for endurance, strength and performance training. If you want a great way to warm up for a particular exercise or cool down then it is perfect.
