For any serious person going to a Crossfit box you will know that double unders can be an important part of any warm up or WOD (workout of the day). Most boxes or gyms publicise their WODs a day or so before so you know what you will be doing on the day. If you’re fed up of using the old speed ropes that are lying around the gym then now is your time to change that.
Having your own speed rope is better than using one of the scabby old ones in your local box (my apologies if the ones in your box are amazing and shiny & new). By having your own speed rope you can familiarise yourself with the weight, how it spins and how you use it. The benefits of having your own speed rope are obvious, you’ll be smashing your WOD times and drastically increasing your AMRAP circuits. Not only improving your times you’ll be decreasing the dreaded whiplash both on your back and feet. OUCH!!
So now it’s you time to go shopping. We recommend buying a speed rope online as typically many sports shops won’t stock them or probably even know what you are talking about. So we recommend you buy your speed rope online.
Owning your own speed rope is essential. Not only that it’s very easy to do, it’s also relatively cheap too. The price of a good speed rope is between £10-£50.00 depending on how flush you are.
You can buy many a speed rope online from places like Amazon or visit websites such as Gasp Fitness that offer long product warranties, free goodies such as bags, workouts & even FREE DELIVERY all for the mere price of £11.99.
So you’ve made your mind up decided to visit GASP fitness and buy your speed rope, all that’s left is choosing the colour. We like the pink one.
