I bought myself one of those jump ropes but I'm having a hard time figuring it out. How do you use this thing? I know you have to jump and swing the rope over and under so it could go under you but why is it so god darn difficult?
I jump rope and it can be surprisingly difficult to start. Especially if you try alternating feet, moving forward/back or side to side, and crossing your arms. Usually you want to jump when the rope is above your head. Your rope could also be too small for you.
like some said it's all about footwork and developing a rhytme.. learn to skip rope like a boxer, its the best way.. you wanna develop a 1-2, 1-2 rhythm while leaning to the left every 1 and to the right every 2..
