Along with helping with weight loss, there are many other benefits to Skipping ropes.
Improves cardio fitness
Skipping Rope is excellent for improving your cardiorespiratory fitness.
Jumping continuously for a period of time requires more blood and oxygen to be pumped to working muscles, which increases your heart rate and respiratory rate to accommodate the increased demand.
Over time, this can strengthen your heart and improve your lung capacity, allowing you to exercise for longer.
If you’re looking for an effective full-body workout, try jumping rope.
The act of jumping rope relies on your lower body muscles (e.g., calves, thighs, and buttocks), upper body (e.g., shoulders and biceps), and abdominal muscles.
This can not only help improve muscle strength but also your muscular endurance, which allows your muscles to exercise for longer, and increase explosive power for quick, sudden movements that are common in sports.
Builds stronger bones
Skipping rope is a high impact exercise that stresses the bones in a healthy way to make them stronger.
As a person jumps, the body responds to the temporary stress on bones caused by ground reaction forces by building them back stronger and denser.
I've been using Rappd accessories for years. My belt (comes in pink too!) is atleast 5 years old and is still in good condition til this day. The wrist and knee wraps are still in great condition too! Love that I can walk into any supplement store and many gyms to find Rappd accessories available everywhere I go!
Highly recommend brand! I personally purchased 7 mm knee sleeves and “slim waist trainer”. As a fitness professional I was bit sceptical about the “waist trainer” ability to slim my waist ha ha. Well I didn’t purchased the product to expect slimming effects. I purchased the product as I suffer with chronic back pain. Slim waist trainer allowed me to lift,squat,deadlift with minimum pain. Any female professional or competitors who struggle with any lower back/abdomen pain should definitely try the waist trainer. It’s more functional tool then sliming tool.
I purchased a pair of RAPPD G Force gloves a year ago, and the comfort and quality are still like brand new. The wrist straps give me plenty of confidence especially when the weight gets bumped up, and the wide Velcro allows plenty of adjustment to get the appropriate firmness.Very highly recommended
Richard is an awesome operator.He looks after me and my gym members,personally delivering stock,and making sure sizing and quality is spot on.His products are always consistant,and he not only listens to suggestions to improve,but acts on those recommendations .The best service lve ever had for gym accessories.His quick release tapered belts suit my smaller female clients,as they tend to suit the female form better than the 4 inch standard belts.Give him a go...He will not let you down..
Excellent service and great products. Have made a few orders on the website and I received the products promptly. I received a text with my delivery details and received all the goods in perfect condition. Good to see a brand out there that cares! No complaints.
Just recently got the wrist wraps and the powerlifting belt, comfortable and extremely supportive with that heavy duty feel. Definitely recommend these products to anyone looking for quality training gear!!
Absolutely amazing service and great products. From the first interaction until now the service has been second to none. I love my powerlifting belt and have now added alot more products to my collection. Thankyou Rappd
