Hi, I'm Ken Kashabura, personal trainer and freelance fitness writer, and this is how to jump rope like a boxer. Whenever you're jumping rope, you want to always, again, start off slow. You want to warm up. You can't're not going to go straight into doing the double jumps right away. So what you're going to do, is, you're going to start off doing some double skips, okay? So that's two skips in between every time the rope comes through. You're going to do that for a minute, then you're going to jump through, and you're going to jump one for one, all right? Then when you get done with that, you can start doing on one leg. So do about ten or so....ten or more on your left. Ten or more on your right. Then you can alternate. And then, once you get good at it, you can go fast. You can do the crosses. And you can jump higher to be able to do the double jumps. Now, a way to, you know, besides obvious reasons of not getting tripped up on the rope, how you can judge to see if you're getting better, is if're going to do these in timed rounds, so you want to jump rope for, say, two or three minutes. You want to see how many skips you can get in in those two or three minutes to measure your progress. I'm Ken Kashabura, and that's how to jump rope like a boxer.
