This was Friday night's WOD - but we went out to dinner with Daniel's parents on Friday, and since i was so so sore from Murph on Saturday, I just could not even begin to think of trying to get 7,000 pounds over my head, so I elected to do this one instead.

I had some hope that I'd actually be able to get a double under, but after they still elude me, so I opted for the quadruple skips as a modification.

There's not a lot to say about this workout. Mostly I was just glad not to be lifting weights.

It looks like my situps were pretty consistently about 10 every 30 seconds. My abs are a little sore today. In the last couple rounds I managed to get the skips going really fast. I managed to get several sets in the 50-60 skips range.

It's a weird wish, but I wish i had a jump rope that was just handles and no rope but woud click when the imaginary rope would hit the ground based on the movement of the handles. ... And the reason I want such a bizarre thing is that I feel like the main reason I haven't managed to get a double under is that I am having a hard time coordinating the faster spin with the higher jump, and with an actual rope it's very difficult to practice it without actually doing it because the rope keeps getting stopped by my clumsy feet.

Get on that ropesless jump rope idea and sell it to the Wii people! Good work, Bekka; that was a ton of work!

I found this a while ago and have been looking for a mechanism by which to post the link somewhere. Thanks for the set-up. :)

O.M.G. That is frickin HILARIOUS. That's totally going on my Christmas wishlist ... >.>

I especially love the glossy infomercial vibe. AND the three adjustable weights you can add to the handle to adjust it to your fitness level! And they have like a biazillion DVD's.

Daniel asked whether I could Zumba while Jump Snapping. I think that's the bestest idea EVER.

In all honesty, however, despite the utterly ridiculous packaging and externals and marketing, I think this could be a useful tool for me to get better at jumping using a real rope. And once I do, then I can pass this off to my mom or something.

Melissa, I cannot believe you found that!

Rebecca, if you get one of those, I'm coming all the way out to Berkley just to borrow it. :p
