Benefits of skipping rope
Skipping is an effective way of burning calories, losing weight, slimming your figure and even getting a flat tummy. This is a simple, all-round exercise that improves balance and encourages good posture. Skipping works lower-body muscles while toning the arms, shoulders, back and abs. With the right technique, this sport can boost your endurance. Use the counter to push yourself further!
15 minutes of skipping is the equivalent of 30 minutes of jogging. One hour of skipping burns up to 725 calories!
How to adjust your skipping rope
To determine the right length for your skipping rope, place your foot in the middle of the rope and lift the handles up either side of your body. For beginners, or for greater comfort, the handles should come up to your shoulders. For advanced skippers, the rope can be shorter, coming up to your lower ribs or navel. Remove the rope (top of the handle) and cut off the extra rope. Reinsert the rope into the top of the handle: your rope is ready!
Enjoy skipping without risk of injury
Correct technique involves jumping with your stomach tight, contracting the abdominal muscles; the pelvis must be tucked under to avoid overarching the back – which can cause back pain and injury. For beginners, to improve jumping and balance we recommend doing two jumps for each rotation of the skipping rope: alternate twice on the right foot, then twice on the left foot. We strongly recommend wearing trainers to cushion impacts
