The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Jumproping

    I don't know where this would go but what kind of jumproping exercises should I do to increase agility and and coordination?

    I have a heart rate monitor if that helps.

    The only thing I can think of would be how one jumps: skipping, double unders, slalom. All of them should improve you agility and coordination.

    DNL - there are many variations, just to name a few: double/triple jumps, one foot, skipping... with a little creativity you can come up with a lot of differant ways of jumping

    the more you jumprope the more coordination you will have

    i was jumprpoping for months with my bud before he left for graduate school - it was kind of competition between him and me... we'd mix things up double jumps, single legged double jumps, single steps etc. after couple of months we'd easily do 700-1000 jumps non-stop
    bought a new jumprope today, will bring to gym with me on monday and start training again - jumproping rocks !

    Sounds cool. What kind of rope do you use? I'm guessing one with the counter so you don't have to count to 1000?

    ummm... NO ! ha ha ... we were counting... it's not that bad... it's definately easier than jumproping ! I use a 8ft everlast leather rope (which is a b***h if it smacks your shaved head LOL)

    Hey I know this post is insanely old, but I have a couple questions since I am not looking to really boost my cardio endurance for soccer. I have a jumprope, I think its one of the everlast cause it hurts like a b1tch if it hits me. I was wondering if this could provide a high enough level of intensity to prepare me for some intense cardio in the future?

    i think that depends on the level of intensity you are willing to give.

    ALSO, have you guys heard about an invention call the ropeless jumprope? ahaha

    Never heard of it, and I am willing to go as intense as my legs will allow me. I will be using it as an alternative to running because jogging is just too boring for me, jumproping becomes like a challenge because it's not so damn easy like sprinting / jogging

    I dunno, Gabe, I think wind sprints/suicides/ladders/whatever you call some variation on sprinting down the field, resting, sprinting, resting, etc., is still highly superior to jumping rope. I've found that as far as conditioning goes, sprinting is numero uno. I sprinted for lacrosse and jumped rope for boxing... it just always seemed that sprinting was a better prep.

    Yeah I was thinking that too, it's so much more intense, and to no suprise intensity usually means better. I think I will do some different routines involving both jumproping and sprints.
