Default How do you "Jump Rope" excercise?

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?

So they not only set up fight clubs, but let the poor fellas try to figure out how to jump rope by themselves as well......I guess they were hoping they'd all hang themselves eventually.

Hey, Texans have a bad history with the mentally challenged. lol

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.

I jump rope all the time. 10 mins. of intense jump = 30 mins of jogging, plus you get the benifits of building wicked calf muscles.

I always hated jump ropes. I thought they were severely homosexual and I mistimed my jump or hit myself with the rope or almost tripped countless times.

In conclusion, **** jump ropes.

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..

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x3l770QRGsQ

i used to skip rope religously, no homo..

Jumping Rope is amazing. Probably the best pre-workout excersize out there.
