What are the different kinds of skipping rope on offer?
Though this may sound surprising, there are actually a plethora of skipping rope styles available from OnBuy’s extensive shelves. If it’s tots and teenagers you’re looking to entertain, the traditional rope and wooden models are ideal for providing some old-school fun, and look gorgeous in a naturally-finished outdoor game collection. If these materials aren’t your bag, we also offer a range of beaded double-dutch examples, which are perfect for larger groups of friends or siblings. Ankle rope alternatives, or skip ball toys with LED lights, are likewise superb for improving their coordination, as play requires organisation and hand-to-eye control.

What are the health benefits of skipping?
If popping to the gym sounds too much like hard work (never fear, we’ve all been there!), it’s certainly time to invest in a super-convenient, easy, and effective conventional skipping rope. Helping to tone your calves, tighten your core, build stamina, and improve your lung capacity, there aren’t many bodily functions that this toy can’t enhance. Surprisingly, they can burn an average of 10 calories a minute, depending on your height and weight, and up to 200 in any given ten-minute session. This makes skipping even more valuable than a daily brisk walk.
The main benefit, however, lies with improved heart health. One of the best cardio exercises out there, skipping will significantly reduce the risk of various diseases and strokes. Increased concentration, coordination, stamina, and flexibility are just some of the physical advantages to skipping, while boosted mental health and reduced anxiety and depression are a few of the psychological profits. With well-established brands such as Lonsdale and Dripex featuring on our wide-ranging list, it’s certainly an excellent time to invest!
FAQs about skipping ropes
Which skipping rope is best for beginners?
If you’re a beginner, a basic skipping rope is ideal. The cable is thicker and it allows you to grip it better. A weighted skipping rope is better for those who are more advanced.
Are skipping ropes dangerous?
Like most sports, there is a risk if the equipment is not used safely, but using a skipping rope is not particularly dangerous. If you know you have problems with your knees or feet, you might want to avoid this exercise due to the pressure it can put on the lower leg muscles and joints.
Is skipping rope better than running?
Using a skipping rope can be similar to running, according to some researchers. It can burn more calories, as it engages more muscles than running.
