2. Jump Rope

A jump rope is an elementary level piece of equipment. Everyone used these in gym class since first grade. Does that make them easy to use? Heck no! It does mean they are readily available in all shapes, styles, lengths and weights. They are a great training tool and at times can make or break your workout.

 

Double Unders: The infamous double under. When those two words are written on the board the class is divided. Some rejoice “I can do this RX!”, others  “stupid double unders….” . There is definitely coaching cues that can help develop this skill. It is a SKILL, a movement that needs to be refined. Refining the movement takes times and most of all practice. Practice will consist of isolated time working on the ever-so-sought-out ability. It’s full of misses and lash marks. Now assuming this is understood and required practice is performed, why would you want the variable of inconsistent weight and length jump rope? It’s one less thing to worry about.

3. Wrist wraps
The purpose of a wrist wrap is to provide support to the wrist joint during heavy or max effort lifts in pressing movements and overhead lifts. During these movements, the wrist can be pulled into excessive extension under load and result in compromised mechanics, possible injury, and failed lifts.
