If you want to see what can be done with jump rope check out Olympic wrestler Buddy Lee on youtube.
My kids laugh when I told them I kept a jump rope journal of every jump the summer going into 7th grade. Just an old 1/2” hunk of rope with knots on the end. It helped get me from being the non athletic last pick at kickball kid, into 5 HS sports and away from a couple friends starting the weed.
54 now and have a couple ropes that mostly gather dust. Rouge speed rope works great for a few double unders.
That's awesome. I have no doubt it made you athletic. It's an activity that's relatively high intensity and requires sustained coordination.

Build a ‘double under’ and heavy rope circuit with v-ups and you get a calorie burner!!

Awesome post, thanks for sharing! With gyms closed I also had lost some fitness. Now my fiancée and I hold each other accountable to home workouts (burpees, squats/lunges, and kettlebells mostly) three times per week and running on off days. Gonna have to look into getting some jump rope into the mix as well.

I added some sessions with a weighted rope to my routine, it was brutal at first, but a great add. I started with a 1/2 pound rope, it was humbling.
