A 10-Minute Jump Rope Workout for Beginners

A few weeks ago, we shared an awesome jump rope workout. And we’re back with the perfect jump rope workout for beginners! As part of Guest Bloggers’ Week, this one comes from Dave Hunt at Crossrope. Dave is a former Navy pilot, competitive track athlete and the creator of the Crossrope jump rope system, which offers progressively heavier ropes to vary the speed and intensity of your rope training.

By now, you’ve probably heard about the amazing benefits of jumping rope: improved endurance, coordination, fat loss, balance, conditioning … the list goes on.

And all of these benefits can be achieved in a shorter amount of time than most popular forms of cardio. Not too shabby!

But unless you’re a seasoned jumper, getting started can be a bit of an intimidating process (with lots of tripping along the way).

So where do you begin? How can you get the maximum benefit of jumping rope while avoiding the most common mistakes that make you want to stop before you even get started?

In the video below, I show you everything you need to know to jump rope with confidence — from how long your rope should be to how to size your rope to how to hold your handles. And I even threw in a challenging 10-minute workout so you can put your new skills to the test.

If you apply these tips and tricks, you’ll be well on your way to that toned, lean jump rope body in no time! Get the video here or below.

    Some interesting tips …some may surprise people, such as avoiding the double jump

  2. Thank you very much for your post and video. I like jumping and usually jump whenever I have free time. Frankly, it is not difficult but useful and convenient for exercise.

    Great video! One thing that will help people with skipping routines is to get a speed rope with lighter handles. The rope that is used in this video is very heavy (large handles and hardware). LiftBro just launched some ultra light weight ropes that will keep your shoulders from burning out.
