So, if you have never jumped rope before, you will probably not want to make a huge investment at this point.

After picking the right type of beast gear speed rope, you will need to know how to use it correctly. Before you start, stretch out your hands a little way from your hips and make sure both your hands are equidistant from your body. Keep your feet close together, but not joined. Remember, the motion has to originate from your wrist; not your shoulder or elbows. Jump only one or two inches off the ground at the maximum and don’t tuck in your knees. Keep your toes pointed downwards and land softly on the balls of your feet. These little tips will make sure you enjoy yourself while the exercise burns away those extra pounds.
While the weight for your rope is a pretty standard pick for beginners, the size of the jump rope varies from person to person depending on their height. Ropes come in four sizes, small (8’), medium (8’6”), large (9’), and extra-large (9’6”). The small size serves people who are 4’9” to 5’4” tall, medium serves 5’4.5” to 5’9”, large serves 5’9.5” to 6’1.5” and extra-large serves 6’2” to 6’9”.
