    Learning to Jump rope

    Any tips for beginners to jump-roping? I got fitted alright (as far as I know) and my max jumping is 12 in a row so far...

    Edit: I'm sorry, please ignore this. Just realized there is a "Search" function here for a reason.

    The best thing about the jumping rope exercise is you don't even need the rope.

    I don't know if it's in my head, but I get a lot more winded when the actual rope is involved.

    BJJ might make you a better ground fighter, but Judo will make you a better dancer.

    So do I.

    So it's either in both of our heads, or there's something to that whole rope business!

    Not sure if I get more winded but I sure do get more whip marks on my poor bare feet with the rope involved. Its like a punishment for missing a jump!

    Could have to do with the timing/rhythm of the rope and physical movement.
    And yeah, the rope getting snagged is a real bitch.
    Usually happens when I get winded.
    And keeps happening until I toss the damn thing and take my rage out on chocolate cake.

    When you're jumping rope, try to isolate the motion to your wrists and ankles. A lot of beginners want to jump using the knees and hips, and that doesn't really work with the speed you need to keep the rhythm of a jump rope. Clear the rope as you jump, but recognize that you really don't need to jump very high.

    I kid, I kid...I Do need to try the PL.

    On the subject of jumping rope what do you guys feel is a good set length?

    I usually do 5m before getting bored, maybe more if I'm watching TV or something.

    It's boring to jump rope for much longer than that, imho.
