I recently had the opportunity to try out a Weighted Jump Rope purchased from Amazon, and today I will be sharing my experience with this product.

In addition to my workouts provided by my personal trainer at Mind Above Fitness, I decided to spice things up with a few Weighted Jump Roping Sessions on the weekends.
I chose to add a weighted jump rope to my exercises for 2 key reasons:
- To unleash my inner child while getting some cardio in
- To work on strengthening my entire body
However, jump roping with a weighted rope offers even more benefits than what initially came to mind.
- Target new muscles
- Improve bone density, as discovered in this 2015 study.
- Improve coordination
- Increase power in your vertical jumps
… and more!
With so many benefits, I figured it was worth a try.
So, once my Weighted Jump Rope arrived at my doorstep, I immediately put it to use. I tried several different HIIT Jump Rope workout routines over the past couple weeks, and I will definitely say that it has been quite a challenge.
I even discovered afterwards that I had sore muscles that I never even noticed before, but this was good news for me! It meant that I was targeting muscles that don’t get a whole lot of action when doing my other workouts. It was the perfect supplement to the workouts I was already doing with my personal trainer!
I am seeing results already so I do plan to continue with my weighted jump rope exercises. As an added bonus, I was able to get a super cute jump rope color that matches many of my workout outfits. 🙂
