When I was a kid I loved jumping rope.  The kinds we had at school were those cool plastic ones with the alternating blue and white (or red and white) plastic pieces.  They we cool then but not exactly what I want or need now.  Thank goodness for the Dragon House crossfit jump rope–the big boy version.  I didn’t realize that jump ropes could be so cool.  This one adjusts according to your height and preference, and it swivels with a ball bearing instead of just being a long piece of rope.  It uses high quality materials and I fully expect it to last years and years.  I’ve found that it is really fluid and much more enjoyable to use than a cheap rope.
