I'm not a big fan of weighted ropes although I have used them, I prefer to use speed ropes and just attach wrist weights. Therefore getting the weight of a weighted rope but the speed of a speed rope, the best of both worlds if you like. But weighted ropes are a good upper body exercise just that I like to use my jump rope for cardio.

I use a 1kg and 2kg rope. It's a ***** on your forearms/shoulders after any extended period.

i use a 1 kg rope. for the first week i used it it completely killed me. after that it was liveable, but like someone said before, it's probably the hardest thing i do.

I am pretty against weighted ropes. I turn to weights for shoulder, arm strength etc. To me the jump rope is for foot work and cardio... It's relaxing for me, it's what I do when I am stressed, etc.
