First, we choose the right rope length. It is determined by the growth of the practitioner. Step on the center of the rope and pull it up by the handles. The ends of the rope should end just above your armpits. Or, take the rope folded by two by the handles and pull it out on the straight arms in front of you at the chest level. The rope should lightly touch the floor.

For athletes with a height of 167-183 cm, the length is 280 cm, those below 250 cm, etc.

We pay attention to the sports form. Women are advisable to use a dense top over a special sports bra. If necessary, supplement the equipment, wrapped around a wide elastic bandage.

It is necessary to choose shock-absorbing jumps of sneakers, they will protect legs from excessive loading.

Jump on the concrete floor or grass can not, fit flat ground, wood or rubberized coating.

Technique of execution

The first thing we learn is the technique of jumping. The body is held exactly and jump accurately upwards. Hands in the parties are not bred, rotating the rope only with a brush. Legs – together. We jump on socks easily and silently, without banging on the heels.

When jumping, you need to monitor your breathing. If it stumbles – switch to less intensive exercises, so as not to overload the heart. With the appearance of muscle tremors weaken the load, jumping alternately from one leg to the other.

Before classes 10-minute stretching of muscles of the whole body is useful.

Training must be completed with a hitch so that smoothly, without wearing out the heart, restore its habitual rhythm, and stretch the muscles, preventing painful breaks.

How many jumps?

Start with the feasible load at a calm pace. The body adapts, and muscles and joints will have time to get stronger.

Increase the load gradually. The first week we jump for 5-10 minutes once a day or every other day, making 30-second pauses between the approaches for stretching, swinging, squats, slopes and turns.

Each next week, add 10-15 minutes, thus bringing the duration of training to an hour (with 3-minute breaks for less intensive exercises).

It is good to alternate jumps on two legs forward with jumps back and jumps alternately on each leg (2 minutes on one, the next approach is 2 minutes on the other).

It’s best to jump to fast energetic music.

The main exercise – jumping on two legs with the rope turning forward. To use the maximum number of muscles – alternate the different types of jumps (their order is 30). On two legs; landing alternately on each leg; on one leg; jumps from side to side; with high knees; turning the rope forward; back; cross. In the high-impact series, we do not forget about double jumps.
