Leather Jump Ropes

When I can’t get to the gym, or just for fun, I’ve been trying jump rope. I got a book about jump rope for exercise from the library called “Jump Rope Training” by Buddy Lee. My rope is strong cord with wooden handles that I got from Goodwill for $3, and I like it a lot, it’s well weighted.

Jared wanted to try a leather rope, so we put some research into one, apparently it’s a good idea to oil the rope before use so that it doesn’t dry out and crack. The tip we got was from an Amazon.com reviewer to put the leather rope in Wesson Oil for three days, then wipe with a rag, and let dry for a couple days. We did that exactly and it seems to be working fine!
