It is impossible to turn these without having correct jump rope form. Practice with speed balls and watch your jump rope scores and endurance take off.
For competitive jumpers: This system was developed by a former national speed jumping champion and coach to increase competitive jumpers' endurance, arm strength and hand coordination. Most coaches know that it isn't the legs that wear out; it's the arms. Speed Training Balls are perfect for jumpers who are looking to turn the rope faster with less fatigue. In addition, many jumpers have a difficult time using both hands equally, which causes the rope to turn too close to their feet. The result is misses! Speed training with this system helps increase coordination and stength in the "weaker" hand. The result ... less misses and faster scores.
For "no jumping" workouts: Speed Training balls are also a great tool for those who are unable to jump well. The balls will turn with little or no jumping. Use for a fun workout.
** You may add the jog step to any of the full speed intervals to get heart rate higher.
** Use your imagination to create many different types of workouts.
For Personal Fitness Trainers: Many of your clients are physically unable to jump a rope. With the Speed Balls, your clients can turn the rope and move their feet at their own pace. No worry of tripping over a rope and failing. Many different foot motions can be added to the workout and the Speed Balls can be turned to the sides of the body giving a great upper body workout. Perfect for interval training.

I rock climb. Jump roping in general is great for strengthening the opposing forearm muscles. I've been interval training with the training balls in between jump rope workouts. No regrets.

I have bought 100's of these of the years for training with groups that I have. The length of wire has varied and now is a touch too short. I think 1 cm longer (1'2 inch) would be perfect

Haven't used them all that much, but seem to be something that keeps ones interest even while not jumping. Hopefully will be useful in strengthening the arms

Haven't tried these but they look useful. With speed training balls, you get 2 handles and each handle has half a jump rope attached to a plastic ball on the end. They swing independently on each hand. You jump in front of a mirror, so you can see which arm or hand is turning slower or if the ball position is correct. This way you can correct or perfect your technique without tripping over the rope.

These Speed Balls helped increase my scores. It also helped me turn the rope with better form. The balls do not turn correctly unless you have good form
