Speed Rope - Original
How to build the heart and lungs of an elite athlete.
The magic of our products are often their simplicity. And they don't have to be new products – some of our products are old ideas made new.
Take the humble skipping rope. Add a thin metal wire (instead of a rope) and you have a crazy, but effective, all round conditioning tool.
Here's the full story.
The Speed Rope is a standard skipping rope on speed. The thin wire ensures maximum speed can be generated, which means the rope is fast enough to circle the body more than once per jump. The CrossFit dudes call these double-unders (or triple-unders) and they're a big part of their training routines.
Because ten minutes of skipping is the equivalent of running a four minute mile. It's a tough workout! Typically, a few minutes skipping is enough to get the heart pumping.
It also has the advantage of being able to be performed in confined spaces. You only need a small space and you're set to go.
Also, proper skipping technique promotes better knee health. By pushing off from the balls of your feet, you reduce the repetitive shocks that are typically caused by running.
Bottom line? Speed rope skipping gives you a killer workout. Plus you get an endurance workout, mixed in with a coordination element and agility work with your feet.

2. Product Range
Iron Edge has one of the biggest ranges of high performance training equipment available in Australia. From Nike Romaleos weightlifting shoes, through to kettlebells, Power Bands and weightlifting equipment. In all we stock 100’s of different products at our warehouse facility in Melbourne so you'll always be able to get what you want and, most importantly, when you need it. That's why Iron Edge is the choice of Australia's best athletes, coaches and gyms. And why anything else is just compromise.
At Iron Edge we employ experienced and qualified engineers to design, test and then source the best manufacturers of all our equipment. Up until 2017 we manufactured in-house, but market pressures forced us to move manufacturing overseas. However we weren’t going to compromise on the quality and structural integrity of our products, so after rigorous research, we’ve been able to partner with some of the industry’s best and most experienced equipment manufacturers. In many ways they are more advanced and sophisticated than our in-house work shop, so you can be assured that the quality of all our products meet the same high standards and are worthy of the Iron Edge brand.
When you promise 'serious training' you have to back it up. Fortunately we do, drawing on our extensive experience dealing with Australia's best coaches, athletes, sports scientists and exercise physiologists. It's enabled Iron Edge to be one of Australia's leading authorities in high performance strength training- and with an educational arm of the business comprised of over ten certified courses launching soon, we plan on increasing the industry standard across the board.
