Crossrope Jumpathlon: The Ultimate Jump Rope Workout Challenge

​Published on January 20, 2017.

Welcome to the Jumpathlon Challenge from Crossrope - the ultimate jump rope workout challenge designed to test your strength, endurance, skill, and mental grit.

Here's a fun fact -

We ran this with our private community back when the 2016 Rio Olympics were running ​in the summer. It was such a fun event that we've decided to bring it back for everyone.

If you want to see what you're really made of, try the Jumptathlon Challenge and see how you stack up against the best.

Let's do it!

What You're Going to Need

The requirements are simple.

You're going to need a timer for timing your sets and a set of jump ropes that range in weight. I'll be using all four ropes from our Crossrope Plus Set​

If you have any questions about what is needed, let us know in the comments.

How the Jumpathlon Challenge Works

OK let's get to the good stuff.

There are four events that you're going to have to complete for the Jumpathlon Challenge. Each event will give you a score depending on how you perform.

Once you complete all four events, you will tally up your scores and see where you fall - Gold, Silver, or Bronze (score breakdown is at the end of the post).

​Let's take a look at the four jump rope events below:

EVENT 1: 100 DOUBLE UNDERS

Objective: complete 100 double unders for time.

Less than 2:00 >> 8 points

More than 2:00 >> 7 points
