When someone develops a habit of doing exercise on daily basis then they always tend to enhance it more and more. Same is the case with the jump rope exercise. The people who used to perform this exercise love to speed up their jump as the time passes. It enables a lot of fun and provides a number of benefits too. There are number ways to increase the jump rope speed to crazy or to jump rope like a pro in just number of days. Have a look at the things to consider if you are willing to increase your jump rope speed.
Jump on the balls of your feet
When you are doing the jump rope exercise then you must keep in mind that you should try to softly jump up and down on the balls on your feet. In this exercise, you should not land on your heels because it can cause you severe pain in your shins. When you land on your balls of your feet, it will work great for your calves. In this way, you can have a better posture and rhythm to jump again and again in a faster way.
Relax…Don’t Jump to high
Keep in mind that you just have to skip a rope, nothing else. So, you don’t have to jump so high. People don’t have an idea about it and they try to jump higher and higher and that’s why they mostly fail to get a proper rhythm. The best way to get in rhythm is by taking as small jumps as you can when you are trying to skip the rope. You just have to relax and take small jumps, this will work for you in a great manner.
Take work from your arms/shoulders properly
The jumping rope exercise is all about the game of wrist. You don’t have to move your arms and shoulders much in this case because if you are doing this mistake then you may reduce your jumping speed automatically. If you are not using your wrists well, then jumping rope will become so much difficult for you. But when you are using your wrists in the proper manner and at great speed, you will automatically get your rhythm and the speed of jumping rope will increase.
Correct Rope Length
The rope you will use during jumping rope exercise must not be so much longer. It just has to tick the floor on which you are doing the exercise as it will help you to get a rhythm and count the reps as well. The longer the rope, it will become harder for you to handle it. And if it is smaller than the general one, then it will be difficult for you to jump over it and get the proper rhythm or to gain speed.
These are some of the ways by which one can easily gain speed in jumping rope exercise in just a couple of weeks or we can say that they can jump rope like a pro.
