    I mean, besides fucking around as a kid. Do I need a crapload of free space? Can I get a decent rope for a decent price or is this one of those "You're a fucking idiot if you don't spend $eleventybillion" things?

    if you have enough space to do jumping jacks, you have enough room to skip rope. i started out using nylon rope and added bits of lead to it for weight. my sister eventually got me one of those kettler ropes. does the same thing i suppose.

    walmart has great ropes. they're heavyish and made of some black plastic/nylon/rubber stuff.

    it's about $8

    Dick's used to sell the perfect rope for me at least. It was a piece of solid tubing with two cheapass handles on the ends. Bright blue. Cost around 3 bucks, perfect weight, lasts long enough. Unfortunately, after my last one snapped, I went and bought a nike speedrope from dicks for like 15 dollars :mad:

    Kick ass, so I don't have to break the piggy bank to get into this. It seemed like it should be cheap, but you never know with new things :mad:

    all the weighted and thick cord ropes are a fucking pain imo...if you wanna jump hard for 30 min (difficult) then your wrists and shoulders are gonne be tired as fuck after like 15 mins and youll have to probably stop or at least not be able to jump hard...search 'buddy lee' go to his site and get a magic speed rope...the one i use is like 12.99

    Improves stamina, posture, speed, agility. You can't perform it with poor technique like you can with other methods of endurance work.

    What do you mean by the last part? As in, there's only one way to do it, so your technique won't be poor? You lost me there.

    if your form or posture sucks then you'll trip on the rope
