Tips

  1. Flick your wrists and forearms when swinging jump rope around, not your whole arm.
  2. Perform exercise on a rubber gym floor and not a hard surface like cement. This is very bad on your knees and will have negative long-term consequences.
  3. To find the appropriate rope length hold onto each handle and step on the rope with both feet together. Bring handles up to your armpits. If the handles are about armpit length then it is the correct rope length.
  4. Start out slow and get into a rhythm.
