The Zeus cable weighing 1/2 pound per 9ft section was developed to add intensity to your double unders. When exercises become easy they're proven to no longer affect the body. Adding resistance to double unders can completely change a work out as demonstrated in the 2016 CrossFit Games when heavy double unders with a rope inspired by the Zeus rope were first performed. The Zeus cable will develop stabilizer muscles while still provide a cardio based workout infused with the resistance training of weight lifting. This cable was carefully selected to ensure the user can still perform fluid double unders yet not alter the jumper's technique or mechanics. Can you tame the Gods? This rope comes in limited cable colors and is only available with Black Handles with Zeus logo tape.
*Handle wrap may vary

Kronos, Hades, Zeus, and Poseidon Cables cannot be exchanged and replacement cables are not available. Due to the size this rope does not include a bag.
A challenging step up your first time jumping with it but you get in the groove and improve grip strength and forearm muscles quickly (as in your second and third time with it are much better/great). Shoulders certainly get the workout and it’s now more balanced (not just cardio and calves like it was with a lighter jump rope). Enjoying it and looking forward to making the next step up when I’m ready!
I was looking for a way to challenge my double unders in workouts and hit different stimulus with the same exercise of double unders. Using the Zues rope has definitely done that. I’ve been training with the Zues rope on most skipping workouts for the past 3 months and working through the shoulder and grip fatigue while it also demands more effort to jump higher and spin the rope harder. When I use my regular rope now, it feels effortless.
It changes the whole exercise of double unders. I would also love the Kronos but I am to tall :-(
I got to the point where DUs stopped being challenging and this product changed that. I can do 25-30 and I’m gassed, which is perfect for most of my crossfit workouts
