The accumulative effect of having weights in the handle adds up when you skip for just a few minutes, in fact the small rhythmic action that your hands are working against actually radiates up through your arms and into your chest and shoulders. The nylon rope is the thinnest in the range and therefore cuts through the air with a buzz when you perfect your technique.
TO BE YOUR BEST
Our adidas training experts have a saying, learn it then work it, that means that their advice here is to practice your technique first without the weight and then add the 'load' (metal rods) to the handles when skipping has become natural and rhythmic for you.
If you get really good at skipping it is possible for it to actually become 'relaxing' in the same way that some people use yoga to clear their mind others find that the rhythmic movement of skipping actually helps them to clear their mind and just put their body on 'auto pilot'.
You can adjust the length of the rope at both ends to ensure it maintains the perfect balance when you use it to skip fast. Using a vertical bearing escape rather than horizontal will give you a more accurate and faster revs per minute which all goes towards making this potentially the fastest rope in the Adidas range.
