Artist date : Jumping rope

The infinity cross ropes arrived today with an additional payment of 35 monies above and over the Fedex charges. I have the 1/4 and 1/2 pound ropes now. And I started jumping. It is difficult to use these ropes. It is like doing a workout on the run with a load in your hands. I started 5 minutes of jumping rope( broken up into bits and pieces) for the past 9 days. I have increased my jumps from 10-25 without tripping 90% of the time and it seems I might be getting a few, well, at least 2 lines on my abdomen. Hope it is not my eyes playing tricks on me. This is in addition to the left knee pain and quadriceps hurts. I can see why they say jump rope is effective. But it has yet to become the fun it used to be when I was a child

      1. When we were children, everyone had a jumping rope. I really disliked it when we had gym outside, and we had to jump while two others twirled the rope. I was more earth-bound than others.

  1. Hello Susie! I really enjoyed reading this post as I was in the same position few months ago. I’ve started jumping rope around the same time you’ve written this post and can now jump over 150-200 times at a go. How’s your routine going now?
