Other benefits from Crossrope training include burning fat, increase in strength, coordination, endurance and athleticism, from which you will see the results quicker and more effective than many other training techniques.

Here at Crossrope we have lighter skipping ropes, such as the Speed 2.0 cable, which is for speed jumping, and used by boxers for stamina, footwork, endurance and breathing efficiency. For bodybuilders however, and any athlete that wants to keep progressing, the weighted cables are a great addition to your fitness program. For example, if you are training with barbells, you can keep adding weights to progress, as your body adapts. With normal skipping ropes there is no progression and once your body has got used to it, the benefits are less. With Crossrope weighted cables, you can always challenge your body and continue to develop your fitness.
“With a series of ropes, your body has constant challenges. Your muscles, your coordination and your timing are constantly put to the test. Once you get quick with speed, you challenge yourself to get quick with a heavy rope. Now, you are stronger, more powerful, more versatile.” – David Hunt, Crossrope founder.
According to Bodybuilding.com, there has been a limited number of studies on weighted skipping ropes suggesting that it has the potential to boost shoulder strength and mobility, besides the better-known full-body athletic benefits. To see the full review of our product click here >
A normal skipping rope is more of a cardiovascular tool, not really to build muscles. However with a weighted skipping rope, your upper body strength and power will improve.
“Performing short sets of weighted skipping rope helps you build more muscle mass, and adding muscle burns more body fat,” says David Hunt.
“You’ll not only add more muscle mass, but you’ll also get leaner.”
