Ross Enamait is a trainer and boxing coach. He has a successful business training athletes of various caliber. I came across his site, RossTraining.com, even before I started my own website. I was extremely impressed by Ross’ use of household items to build his own training equipment. I was equally impressed by his incredible level of athleticism and work ethic.
I’ve written a few articles on Ross Enamait. This one here shows you in greater depth Ross’ training style. I like to call him the real-life Rocky Balboa for his bare-bones yet intense approach.
What is Jump Rope Conditioning?
Ross Enamait’s Jump Rope Conditioning DVD is a complete guide to Jump Roping. He shows you how to jump rope – starting from beginner to advanced variations. Some of these include:
- Single leg variations
- Alternating Steps
- Triple unders
- Double Unders
- Stutter Step
- Criss Crossing
- Squat Jump Double Unders
- Bounce Step Variations
- Double Under variations
- High Knees
- Side to Side Transitions
- Backwards skipping
Pros of Jump Rope Conditioning:
#1 – It’s an inexpensive product. The Jump Rope Conditioning DVD is only $13.95+ shipping. Similar products cost 3-4 times that amount, and deliver no where near the value that Ross’ DVD provides.
#2 – 20 sample jump rope workouts are included with that add-along 44 page eBook. These jump rope workouts are progressive and challenging. You can also easily modify them based on the tools that Ross teaches in the DVD.
#3 – Combat style training helps the average joe get and stay into shape. Even though Ross has a boxing background and trains boxers, his training style can easily help anyone who is short on time get an effective workout.
#4 – What Ross teaches is based on science and experience. There is no fluff or latest fads included in this plan. Just like all of his previous products, Ross over delivers on content and instruction.
Cons of Jump Rope Conditioning for Athletes
Frankly, there are no drawbacks to this program. Normally, I would state that a particular program is only for beginners, or only for advanced athletes. Ross’ plan is seriously for everyone, because he goes through the basics and advanced techniques
Some previous DVD’s I’ve reviewed had problems with audio or production value. This is not the case with Ross’s DVD. You get clear cut instruction which is to the point.

How will Jump Rope Training help you burn fat?
In addition, I tend to cheat when I run. I know I won’t be able to run all out for 30 minutes, so I end up jogging extremely slow. This is why many people do not see significant results with jogging or running
However, with a jump rope, you have no choice but to work hard. It’s a very quick, intense movement. And if you don’t jump over that rope as it comes under you, you fail!
You’ll be burning off more calories over all with just 10 minutes of jump roping than 10 minutes of running. This is because you expend a lot of energy when you lift your entire body off the floor with each turn of the rope.
The heavier you are, the more difficult it will be to lift your body off the floor, and the more calories you burn.
