Finding the right rope

Finding the right rope

  • Picking the right rope starts with the handles. Most have a mechanism that allows the rope to rotate in the grips.
  • Consider your height. Some ropes list a height range while others let you choose the rope length in feet based on a sizing guide.
  • If you're starting, invest in a cable-based rope. The cable should weigh between 3 and 4 ounces.

  • Your hands should be in front of your pelvis - generally the middle of your body - or near where your pockets are.
  • Your elbows should be slightly bent.
  • Your hands should not be too far away from your body out to the sides as it makes the rope shorter.
  • Your hands ...

Once you have the rope on hand, place the middle of the rope underneath the arch of one foot.

Start with the rope behind you, pulling on your calves, your hands in front of you, and the cable end of the handles pointing frontwards. Then do an initial swing with your arms.

  • The rope should have a pleasant "horseshoe" shape.
  • Your feet should be close together.
  • The rope should contact the ground about 10 inches in front of you.
  • Stay on the balls of your feet.
