David Weck, the inventor of the BOSU Balance trainer sent me a DVD of a new concept he has been working on. It is called rolling ropes, what a great idea. Innovation is doing new things with old ideas and tools, which is what David has done. The jump rope a simple tool that I have let fall to the bottom of tool box used in an entirely different way. Go to the BOSU Fitness web site and you will see some good video clips of the concept. He has reinvented the job rope as a tool to use without jumping to enhance rhythm, awareness, connectivity and linkage. I have been playing with this the past few days in my workout between exercises and warm-up, I can see where it could be a module within the workout or the last step in a an active warm-up for overhead sports. I will definitely be using this with volleyball and for the swim teams I work with. It is FUNdamental and remember simplicity yields complexity.
