Crossrope Endurance and Power Building Jump Rope Workout
Like most runners, one of my goals for the spring racing season is to get faster and build my endurance and power. As most of you know, one of my favorite ways to do that (besides speed work) is by using the DVRT Ultimate Sandbag. Another way that I have been working to build power and endurance is with Crossrope weighted jump rope system.
Earlier last week I shared some details (and hosted a giveaway) about their newly re-released Limited Edition Set which for lack of a better word, is pretty badass.
The set consists of three different weighted jump ropes – a 3/4 lb Rush Rope, 1 1/2 lb Flex Rope and 3 lb Titan X Rope.
While I have been working out with their Starter Set for a while (which contains a 1/4 Agility Rope and 1 lb Intensity Rope), I just recently added their new set into the mix this past week and let me tell you, it’s KILLER.
Here is an example of the workout that I have been doing:
I have been including it as part of my warm up on my strength training days and can really feel the burn and the benefits. Jumping regular rope is an awesome way to improve your speed, power, agility, balance and coordination in general – this weighted jump rope system takes it to a whole other level.
If you’re new to jumping rope or wanna ease into the weighted jump rope workouts then check out this awesome 10 minute beginner workout.
If you were one of the few to get your hands on the Crossrope Limited Edition Set then definitely give this workout a try. Speaking of, the winner of the giveaway will be announced later today on Instagram so if you entered be sure to check your phones today 😉
Next week I will be share more ways for runners build power and endurance that don’t actually include running a single step! 😉
