Adjusting your skipping rope?
To determine the right length of your skipping rope, place your foot in the middle of the rope and lift the handles up the side of your body. For beginners, or to be more comfortable, the handles should come up to your shoulders. For advanced skippers, the rope can be shorter, coming up to your lower ribs or navel.
Easy three-step adjustment (see the illustration on the packaging)
1. Loosen the screw on the upper part of the handle.
2. Push the cable towards the outer side to suit your height and skill level (as explained above).
3. Tighten the screw.
Your rope is ready!
Add weights to your 500 skipping rope (see the illustration on the packaging)
You can add up to two weights on each handle (1 x 2.6 oz. weight, sold separately). To add weights, turn the handle so the colored button faces you. Press the button to release the chamber. Add one or two weights to the chamber. Reinsert the chamber into handle.
Repeat on the other side.
You can start your workout.
Enjoy skipping without risk of injury
Correct technique involves jumping with your stomach tight, contracting the abdominal muscles; the pelvis must be tucked under to avoid hollowing of the back – which can cause back pain and injury. For beginners, to improve jumping and balance we recommend doing 2 jumps for each rotation of the skipping rope: twice on the right foot, then twice on the left foot. We strongly recommend wearing sports shoes to cushion impacts
15 minutes of skipping is the equivalent of 30 minutes of jogging.
1 hour of skipping burns up to 725 calories!
Advantages of skipping ropes
Skipping is an effective way of burning calories, losing weight, slimming your figure and even having a flat tummy. This is simple, all-round exercise that improves balance and encourages good posture. Skipping works lower-body muscles, while toning arms, shoulders, the back and abs. With the right technique, this sport can boost endurance.
Did you know?
The colored cable gives you a visual guide on the ground to help you know when to jump and improve your coordination. This is an important feature that can be extremely useful when using cross training areas which often have black floors!
