It Starts from the Ground Up



Jumping rope has enormous conditioning benefits, but always jump on a forgiving surface.  Do not skip rope on concrete or hard wood floors.  They have little or no “give”.  Use a rubber mat, carpet or padded surface of some type to help absorb impact.  You will also get more benefit from a surface that requires effort to rebound from.
