Little By Little Makes Big
Learning the skill of jumping rope is different than putting that skill to use in your workout routine. Learn the skill first.
Use the little by little principle by following these small and attainable, but very important steps.
- Buy the right rope. Make sure it’s going to be adjustable.
The time frame for this process is not the same for everybody, one maybe able to attain sustained jumping immediately, others may take a week. I suggest that everybody takes their time in practicing the skill so that it is engrained in a relaxed fashion, not in a tight or spastic out of control way.
Big By Big can equal failure with the rope. One maybe able to sustain jumping for a good while right off the bat, however maybe they are straining to keep it going, their breath is out of synch and ultimately cannot keep it going for long.
Little by little will allow you to learn the skill slowly, thoroughly and confidently with a healthy and patient attitude towards the jump rope that will keep it loose and fun.
