Ropes are great for fitness because they provide resistance, which boosts muscle strength and cardiovascular endurance due to the large amounts of work needed to move fast.

A jump rope is a piece of equipment consisting of two poles (or handles) connected by rope or cable. The length is about an arm's reach when held at the center. Ropes can be weighted to make it easier to perform certain exercises.

Many people also use battle ropes in their battle rope workouts. The battle ropes provide resistance against your muscles and force them to contract harder than they would with free weights.
