    Once you get comfortable with it, try single foot double unders. If they don't induce a near death experience then nothing will.

    I used to be terrible at skipping rope. 6 months later, not so bad, I look pretty cocky doing it too. Still can't do the double turn dealie, I'm just not fast enough or whatever. At my gym, we have the beaded ropes... those hurt like a bitch when you're barefooted. :viking:

    I was actually quite good with skipping on one leg. I like to switch up my leg that is up every now and then for a challenge. It really helps me.

    It takes a while to get really good at jump rope. We used weighted leather ropes, and THOSE really hurt when you get hit with them. I've done it many a times.

    I know skipping is fantastic exercise for your heart and lungs, but is it good for your knees? I've been told that it can mess them up in a similar fashion that running does, and I've been told by someone else it can actully make your knees stronger.

    so which does it actully do?

    Misinfo? Running/jogging really doesn't screw your knees up, it's sprinting that does it, normally (feel free to kill me on that one, I would love to be corrected). Skipping is about the same intensity as jogging on your knees I think, since you're not slamming them into the pavement and forcing the joints to move as harsh as sprinting, but I could be wrong, of course.

    Well, you are causing impact on you knees and ankles so there is always a possibility of causing injury. If your doing ropes on a mat and not on the street you should be fine, if it starts to hurt then stop. I've had to stop skipping for a bit just because it was starting to hurt my ankles, but it never felt too bad on my knees

    I meant that sprinting is more of stomping and launching. Skipping is just a simple ankle/knee push. Sprinting and hard jogging are a greater pain on your joints, I would think.

    Ah right thanks for the info dudes. I have just recovered from a twisted knee and fucked back so I'm just being a little careful about what exercises I do. Skipping does seem to be helping though, I just wanted to be sure. Thanks again.

    Just make sure you wear shoes and you don't skip on a hard surface like cement and it definitely won't be a problem. I skip barefoot usually on wood and it doesn't hurt ever whereas I used to jog on the pavement with good running shoes and still I'd sometimes get a little knee pain.
