I highly recommend this jump rope. The "rope" part is made of surprisingly thick plastic tubing. It swings as fast as a licorice speed rope, and it's heavier than it looks. The first few times you use it, you really feel it in the shoulders, but that goes away after two or three sessions.
Plus, I usually jump rope barefoot, and this thing has definitely taught me to stay light on my feet. It literally drew blood once when it caught my toes.

No, its not illegal to make someone work more then 8 hours a day. Not until he goes back to school anyway.
I just did a great jump rope workout. I think its best to switch it up though and add some other non rope rounds in for overall conditioning. It helps keep it less boring too.
Heres what I did :
9x3 minute rounds
Rnds 1-3 Jump Rope
Rnd 4 Dumbbell Snatch
Rnd 5 Shadowbox
Rnd 6 Jump rope
Rnd 7 Dumbbell Snatch
Rnd 8 Jump Rope
Rnd 9 Dumbbell Swings
I used a 35lb weight. Great cardio workout and you feel the jump rope is much harder after doing snatches or swings.

Why the long hours, and when do you rest. Dude, take it from someone who knows- resturants can lead to a big dead end. Hey, it's fun to get the tips and party, but it goes nowhere. Too many druggies and losers. Watch that movie "Waiting". Alex is right, go to school, and get a better carreer. Most guys get some running in, at least all the Thai's at Fairtex run, and every boxing champion runs, so, you might need to run, as well. You only need to do 3 miles- how long does it take you?

Jog over to the city College, kid. I was a D high school student (truancy) and graduated from UCLA with honour. It can be done, grasshopper.

Jogging is good for general relaxation and recovery cardio. Nothing beats going for a nice run through the neighbourhood at night when everything's quiet. Low level stuff will not help your fight conditioning that much but no one can train at maximum intensity every day.
But yeah skipping is great, when I first started I just couldn't do it (lol 6'2" and heavy) but after getting rope length and weight right I love it.

yes I find a slow 5k through the neighbourhood of an evening keeps the blood and endorphins flowing on the days on the off days from real training, however feel free to call it whatever you want if my terminology causes conniptions

Your terminology doesn't cause conniptions, it's just crap.
