Before you start jump roping, you want to make sure that the jump rope you're picking, whether it be a plastic speed rope or a leather workout rope or even the cotton rope, you want to make sure it's the right length for you. And one of the ways to help you pick the right length is to actually take your jump rope and then step into the middle of it, right about into the middle of the jump rope and bring your hands up. Your hands should go just underneath your armpits. This one is a little bit short for me so I would take another rope and then by stepping into the middle of the jump rope, with either foot, then we're going to bring the handles up under the armpits. And this one touch right up underneath my armpits, so this would be about the size rope that I would need to do the jump roping. So make sure when you start the new boxers off that no matter what color they pick, no matter what size they pick, no matter what length they pick, we want to make sure that it fits them directly. Thank you.
