The best jump ropes you can buy
- The best jump ropes are built to last, come with plenty of extras, include replacement parts, and are backed up with a lifetime warranty.
- The WOD Nation Speed Jump Rope has all of these benefits as well as a smooth bearing system and a cable long enough to accommodate even the tallest athletes.
Forget about the bulky, plastic segmented jump ropes you were forced to use in junior high gym class. Today's jump ropes are precisely engineered to cut through the air with the slightest flick of your wrists. Tangling is also virtually unheard of. The best jump ropes feature a coated steel cable that is attached to comfortable, lightweight handles with ball bearings that allow for seamless rotation of the "rope."
You will likely have to adjust the length of your jump rope to match your height. Start by standing on the middle of the rope with your foot. Then, adjust the length so that the handles are at your armpits. From there, test out the rope and decide if you want it to be shorter or longer. Once you have a length you are comfortable with, we recommend using a wire cutter to clip off the ends of the cable so you don't have annoying and unnecessary lengths of cable hanging off the ends.
