Title Super Boa Speed Rope
($15; www.titleboxing.com)
Heavy rubber ropes weigh up to four pounds and work the shoulders, arms, and core, while lightweight speed ropes like this Super Boa hone agility. Durable leather versions fall somewhere in between. Whichever you choose, look for foam-rubber grips and high-quality ball bearings. To find the right length, stand with one foot in the middle of the rope. The handles should hit your armpits.
