Jump Rope / HIIT

I've been using this weighted jump rope lately, and it is quite the workout. With the speed rope, I can never do one jump to exhaustion -- I always miss first. But if I get on a good run with the weighted one, my whole body gets tired such that I slow down and then miss.

I've been using it to do high intensity interval training

Funny story: in first grade, I was so gangly that I couldn't jump rope at all. (I grew very fast -- I was taller than my second grade teacher.) The gym teacher, Mrs. Metzger, told me that one day I would be a great jump-roper. 

After my freshman year of high school, I went to a five-star basketball camp, where I played against Jeff Lebo. Turns out I was one of the top five jump-ropers of all the kids!
