Crossfit Ropes & Training Ropes

The following are reviews of popular ropes that people are purchasing to assist with their Crossfit training routines.

Training Ropes

Training ropes for Crossfit come in 3 different lengths 30, 40 and50 inches in length. You can purchase these ropes in either a 1.5 or 2 inch thickness.

What’s nice about this particular brand of training ropes is that they come with an instructional CD-ROM. This way you will get plenty of ideas on how to use your new ropes correctly.

These training ropes are made from nylon so they will not fray or tear your hands up. You still may prefer to wear a pair of gloves while training with the ropes.

Using training ropes as part of your Crossfit routine is a great way to improve your strength and your cardiovascular system. Before you know it you will have so much more arm power than ever before!

How to Use Training Ropes Effectively

For beginners it is recommended to start with the 1.5 inch diameter rope. It fits more snugly into your hand and is just easier to use.

There is a significant difference with the 2 inch rope even though it is only 33% larger!

The majority of customers recommend purchasing the 50 foot length. This provides you with a better workout and quicker results.

To use the ropes your aim is to send waves along the entire length of the rope. The higher you raise your arms and the greater your range of motion is the more waves you will generate.

Your goal should be to send big waves along the entire 50 foot length! Of course this will take a little practice but you can do it!

Adding training ropes to your Crossfit routine can be done as part of your interval training. Grab the ropes and work hard on them for a minute or two with the aim of getting a few sets in each time.

With this particular brand of training ropes customers have reported no major issues. One person did state that the CD-ROM would not play on their computer.

Orders have been delivered quickly and the ropes arrived in perfect condition.

Ultra Speed Cable Ropes

Jump ropes of all kinds and sizes are perfect for Crossfit. The Ultra Speed Cable Ropes by Jump Ropes are some of the fastest and durable on the market today.

The Ultra Speed Cable ropes are unique in that they are adjustable and lightweight.

The total length of the cables is 9 feet 6 inches which makes them long enough for a person just over 6 feet tall to use. People taller than 6ft 4” may find the length too short.

To adjust the ropes you simply adjust the screw at the end of the rope with a screwdriver.

If you shorten the rope the excess will hang out of the handles but this doesn’t impede your jumping ability. If you are the only person using the rope then you could cut the excess rope.

Most users buy this type of rope to perform Double Unders and Speed jumping.

Many gym owners purchase these cable ropes for their members to use and are extremely happy with the quality.

The manufacturer recommends using these ropes for indoor jumping only. Plus they will soon be available in a choice of colors.

The cable is enclosed in a black plastic sleeve which helps prevent wooden floors from becoming damaged. The wire spins very easily inside the handles without becoming tangled.

The Ultra Speed Cable Ropes are currently selling for $13.95. This is a great price and the customer reviews definitely recommend these ropes.

They are durable and will get you jumping as fast as you did in your youth. The adjustable length makes them perfect for the entire family.
