Jumprope and exercise
I got myself one pretty much to do it just for fun but if I want to make it more of a workout, how would I go about doing that? Is there a particular routine that I can do or do I just keep skipping until I get tired.
Sorry I know kind of a dumb question.
Cayla, you can do it in intervals (say jumping for 1 min and resting for 30 sec) or try workouts that introduce different kind of jumping (Internet have these too, lol). Or you can get a couple of friends to join in and turn it into a play, one skipping the rope taking turns with 2 people wiping it around in various patterns.

I just got the harbinger one and it is plastic but the rope is adjustable that's why I got it. I'm 5'2 so I needed something that is not too long plus I went to my local new balance and they only had the plastic ones. I thought to start with this and maybe I can move up to the fancier rope but I have to search around where I live to see where I can get a leather rope.
