Hey everyone! So I've been trying really hard to lose weight lately. I dunno why but I've been getting fat. So a lot of my reviews are probably going to reflect that. Now not everything works for everyone and it's hard to find that thing that works for you. Even harder if you've never had to look for it at all. Seven years ago I was 109 lbs. Now I am 165. Sadly I didn't actually change anything. I might be eating less actually and more concerned about what I am eating but I'm 31 so that's a big difference from 24 anyway and after 3 kids I can really use all the help I can get. So I was excited to try this jump rope. I always liked jumping rope as a kid and I figured it would be a fun easy way to get more exercise in. When I first got the rope I thought the construction was a bit weird.
Its cool that you can adjust it by cutting it and since I am so short that required a lot of adjustment. Once I finally got it adjusted I realized 2 things, one is that the rope is light. This means not only can you jump rope faster with this, you pretty much have to otherwise its not going to swing in a fluid motion. The second thing is its hurts if you miss the jump, badly, you have to wear shoes. So I got some shoes but still and its probably just me but I had a really hard time trying to use this rope. I think it is maybe something that needs building up to so you can get up to speed so to speak. The combination of my weight and the fact that I'm just not fast enough meant I could not actually use the rope. If you are looking for a jump rope specifically so you can swing it faster and push yourself to the limits, this may be perfect for you and you can pick it up here.
