Skip Your Way to Good Health
If talks of skipping has got you reminiscing your childhood, you should perhaps get back to it and include it as part of your daily routine. All you need to do is to get hold of a skipping rope and spare about 20 minutes of your time every day.
Skipping ropes can be a lot of fun, but when you’re just doing it for the first time, it can be frustrating. You have to practice coordination between your hands’ actions, the movement of the rope and the actual jump, which is not easy when you have to do it over and over again. To avoid this whole hassle, we workout with a cordless skipping system. You won’t believe it’s a skipping rope at first glance because it’s just two handles and nothing in between, and no it’s not invisible, it just isn’t there. Instead, it uses the motion of weighted balls to monitor your skipping.
Most people don’t believe at first but quickly do after a while exercising with it. You still get all the benefits of a conventional skipping rope without going through the trouble of learning the skills and techniques. It is also great for indoor skipping; if you have a low hanging ceiling or do not want to knock anything over, this is the solution.
There is still no compromise on health, you still get an amazing cardio workout, exercise your whole body and have fun. Its size also makes it incredibly portable, and you don’t have to worry about the rope getting tangled.
