THE Double Under Training Jump Rope for Any CrossFit Athlete:
Designed and patented by 5-Time World Jump Rope Champion, Molly Metz, the R2 Trainer Rope is THE go-to training rope for any CrossFit athlete! We’ve been to over 250 CrossFit gyms for our Double Under Seminars and always start an athlete off with a trainer rope.
If you’re new or old to double unders, the R2 trainer rope is a great start up rope (we HIGHLY recommend this rope for beginners), as the thickness of the cord provides just enough weight (inertia) and aerodynamic drag for you to FEEL where the rope is when you’re jumping. The flexibility of the cord is also accommodating to erratic changes in hand position when jumping (as opposed to rigid-cable ropes).
If you’re great at double unders, this is STILL a perfect rope for you! Molly Metz can do 10 minutes of double unders without a mistake (1400 in total)- she uses the R2 Trainer (In 2014 she used the R1.5 Hybrid Speed Rope, click here for more information on this rope) for this event and with everyday WODs because she can FEEL where the rope is, and it accommodates any poor mechanics that fatigue may introduce.
High-Intensity Training Jump Rope:
The rope can also be used to train (as the name implies) jump rope for high-intensity interval training (HIIT): boxing, MMA, & wrestling.
The handles are made of an ultra-durable nylon, the patented bearing system makes them virtually friction-free, making this rope feel effortless at times.
Note: The PVC cord is quite durable and can be used on concrete and can be sized by tying knots in the cord- making it virtually maintanence-free! It’s also a perfect blend of flexibility without stretchability!
