Ever wonder how often you should be jumping rope each week?

If you’re like many of the jumpers we speak to on a daily basis, it’s a very common question that comes up. It’s also one of great importance because how often you jump not only has an impact on your results, but it plays a key factor when it comes to injury prevention.

There’s been a lot of debate in terms of how long a jump rope session should be.

Some say it’s OK to jump every single day. Others claim it’s only good to be using the rope once or twice a week. But the real answer depends on you and your answers to some important questions.

3 Little Technique Improvements for Fast Jump Rope Results

Published on October 23, 2015

Today I want to discuss 3 quick and simple fixes that will help you improve your jump rope technique.

One of the biggest things that hold jump ropers back in further skill development is simply not analyzing their own form and identifying the areas that are causing the problems.

Whenever I begin to trip up, I like to jump rope in front of a mirror so I can start critiquing my own form and technique until I identify where it is breaking down so I can make the proper fix. Continue Reading

How To Build Your Own Powerful Jump Rope Workouts

Published on August 19, 2015

One of the great benefits of the Crossrope system is its portability.

Any time I find myself travelling or just heading out for the weekend, I’ll throw my Burn Set in my Crossrope Training bag and bring it with me. I love having the freedom to get a workout in no matter where I am and no matter what surface is available.

Let me give you an example…

Just this past weekend my wife and I drove over to her family’s lake house where we were going to spend a few days.

I had already missed Friday’s workout in order to get on the road faster because we were both burnt out from the work week and I wasn’t sure whether I’d be working out that weekend or just be relaxing by the water. My Burn Set was there with me just in case.

When I woke up Saturday morning, the decision was made… Continue Reading

Why Jump Rope Sizing Guidelines Are Not As Important As You Think

Published on July 22, 2015

I’m not sure how many of you are golf fans, but if you haven’t heard the name Jordan Speith yet, you will.

Jordan is a prodigy.

He is the best golfer in the world right now and he’s only 21.

As I was watching him try to win his 3rd Major of the year this past weekend (he came really close), I marveled at his mastery in all parts of the game.

I also started thinking of an interesting parallel to the jump rope.

In Jordan’s bag, he has a whole set of clubs…

…a driver, woods, irons, and a putter.

All of the clubs are different sizes, and yet he knows exactly how to swing and manipulate each one to strike the golf ball at precise distances and directions.

Even though every club is a different size, his knowledge of how to position his body allows him to be effective with each club.

I like to apply a similar concept to the jump rope. Here’s how… Continue Reading

Do you have those days when you just don’t feel like working out?

For some of you, maybe it’s even most days…

Some of these reasons may sound familiar…

  • I’m tired
  • I need to spend time with family/friends
  • I never have time for my hobbies

I certainly get it. Life happens, sucks up energy, and leaves me just wanting to relax for the afternoon instead of grinding out a workout in the gym.

The question is are you able to achieve your personal fitness goals in the time you have? Continue Reading
