Cool start to what will hopefully be a good series of content on Crossfit for jump rope
wow great find, but at our place we use heavy ropes so when i try the lighter ones i cant seem to jump at all, and for some reason i always take two hops on one swing. if only the heavy ropes swivle too lol
I started out the same way. It comes with practice, get a lighter jump rope (speed rope), even if just for yourself. You'll get different benefits out of being able to coordinate hands and feet with a quicker rope (assuming you're not already lightning fast with a heavy rope)

I'm a big fan of the jump rope. I have the accumeasure ball bearing one, it is pimp.
It's tough finding a good rope if you are taller. I'm 6'3, so 9 foot ones aren't too comfortable for me. Most stores don't carry over 9 i've noticed.
Jump rope bare foot to really motivate yourself to not mess up.
