Skipping Rope

Recommended Posts

If you give one good serious hour of learning to skip(doing nothing special) you'll quickly be able to do 4-5 minutes without hitting your feet. After you get comfy...soon your heart will relax and you'll have to put in a bigger effort to get your HR up. Its a weird movement for adults that haven't been doing it for a long time so it makes your HR jump without working hard...give it time and deal with the learning curve stress and you'll realize that its not really all that bad. I was that way with running for a while since I rarely ever ran more than 1/2 mile before I started cycling...despite the fact that I could ride my bike 100miles fairly easily I had trouble keeping my HR down for a trotting mile or two but now I can run for an hour without my HR going much over 140.
