How to successfully jump rope…

Jump roping is AWESOME.  What a great way to condition your heart, your mind, and your body.  Yes we all want that!

 

 

Steps to get started:

 

  • Get a weighted jump rope 1 to 2.5 lbs.
  • Leather preferably which will give you a more controlled jump rope.
  • See youtube video to make sure to pick out the jump rope for you :http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=hmWE07DQ4cg&feature=g-upl

Steps to a successful jump roping workout:

  • Work with your stomach muscles, make sure your stomach controls your body and balance for softer steps on the ground.  No pounding.
  • As stated above tip, make sure that your feet come down gently on the ground for each hop
  • Now practice and vision your body going through smooth moves so each single turn will be linked with a foot placement.  It will take awhile because we usually start jumping like we did in 1st grade.

 

Well, practice does make perfect.  Good luck!
