Today I discovered the Adidas Hardware website. It’s dreamy. How did I find it, via a search for a skipping rope. This is the troubling part.
Do real men really skip as part of their training regime. Of course, I know boxers do, and it does not get much more “real man” than that, but does the average joe really skip, in public, or in a gym?
Skipping goes against my every fibre of being a guy, but then, if I am to become a true fitness wanker I am going to have to maybe step up and go to some dark places. As long as it never means I have to play badminton, I think I should be fine.
I had a tip off that skipping is really good for you, both for general fitness and also for sports where quick bursts of speed are needed. The jury is out.
If I was to skip, I would definitely get one of the skipping ropes from Adidas. That being said, I am not sure I am ready to become a skipping fitness wanker.
