Best for: beginner, cheap and fast

Downsides: not much to it, cheap materials and will lash your arms and hand occasionally like a professional madam on a bad day
So I bought one of these as jogging around my way was out due to the flood of people during the lockdown. It's an avoidable risk. Had done CrossFit and working class boxing club movie group that would occasionallu bust out the skipping rope, both were useless at watching you how to skip - you gotta learn then practice before skipping rope is any use as a training tool or exercise. I made the mistakes of trying to kick my own bum and held my hands up around my chest to twirl the rope.
There are good and short beginner videos on YT that will teach you the form, video yourself skipping to see what you're doing wrong and go from there is my advice. In a few short weeks I've got the hang of it that I can go without restarting for 40 secs and only do small , non exhausting hops to clear the rope rather than bounds.
Definitely feel it is a good workout for the small space I have outdoors.
It's helping me be less sluggish, heavy footed and clumsy and providing me cardio.
Thicker ropes move marginally slower and provide more of a workout for your upper body, this is best for quick swish.
Amazon branded and quite simply put together. Trimmed off like maybe 6cm from one end easy enough. I'm 5.9 tall.
A must have fitness item. Couple with the pull up bar and you don't need equipment to do push ups, sit ups or squats at home and save yourself on gym fees!!
