York Skip Rope
Advantages: Foam grips for comfort, real rope, easy to use and store.
I loved skipping when i was at school, it was a playground favourite between me and my group of friends. I started teaching my daughter a few games and tricks to do with her skipping ropes in the summer and she also shared them with her friends at school although i was surprised my children's school does not have or use skipping ropes at all and my daughter has to take in her own. I purchased a good old fashioned set for her with the proper rope and wooden handles these are made for children as i tried to use them and kept slapping the back of my neck with the rope. Skipping ropes are also used for keeping fit and losing weight. I purchased the York skipping ropes from Argos about five years ago now and still use them daily.
York skipping ropes cost £4.99 from Argos, Jjb and Amazon uk. York skipping rope comes in a little box that's yellow in colour with the words York on the box in black it is unclear what is in the box from the packaging. Inside the box the skipping rope is all wound up and secured in clear plastic bag.
York skipping rope has plastic handles but they are covered in grey foam , the foam is comfortable to hold in the hand and let me get a good grip on them even with sweaty hands. The rope is black in colour and made from rope not like the others on the market that are pvc. Because this skipping rope is made from actual rope the set feel weighted and the rope spins around much better i can only make this comparison as i had a cheap pvc set before the York set.
York skipping rope is roughly 8ft long and weighs 0.2kg. You use the skipping ropes like you normally would for skipping and as i said i have had these for five years now yet they still look like new, no fraying or damage to the rope , the handles look a little dirty but that's it. I do use the York skipping rope indoors as i have the space but can be used outdoors also. I skip for roughly 10 -15 minutes everyday. It helps keep my calf muscles toned , helps with thighs, chest and arms also but most importantly it works out the cardiovascular system keeping me in tip top shape all over.
You can lose weight doing skipping regularly as it helps burn of the fat helping release the hgh hormone naturally. The York skipping ropes are very durable and a decent length , suitable for male or female. I highly recommend the York skipping rope set.
Summary: Skip yourself healthy
