Hi, I'm Jeremy Manning, Director of Personal Training at Elevation Fitness and the founder of Uplift Project. Today, we'll be talking about how to measure your jump rope for your size. The best way to do this is to step on the center of the jump rope just like a shoelace you want to make sure it's equal length on either end and then hold it up to your shoulder. It should be just below the collarbone. So as you can see this jump rope is a little bit too long for me so I want to take a slightly smaller jump rope, step on the center, line it up like a shoe lace, bring it up just below my shoulder and this would be a proper jump rope for my height. So once you have determined that the jump rope is the proper fit, you should be able to execute the exercise relatively easy without getting into any hangups. So as you can see this jump rope is a little bit above the shoulder therefore, it's a little bit too long for me and a little harder for me to execute. Using the right size, I'm not going to have the same problem. I'm Jeremy Manning, Director of Personal Training at Elevation Fitness and that was how to measure your jump rope.
