How to Jump Rope in 2023 (#78)

“Just because a skill looks crazy doesn’t mean its impossible. It comes down to patience and doing the right drills while practicing the right mechanics ” — Nate K-G

The jump rope community has grown tremendously over the last few years as a result of the pandemic. So what better way to start off the year than by a massive episode that details nearly every frequently asked question about jump for all skill levels? So that’s what we’re doing today my dear jump rope friends!

(I’ve also created a new, FREE beginner program with everything you need to get started correctly)

This episode is divided up into a few different parts, starting with Beginner topics like the best gear and the correct skills to practice – all the stuff you might be curious as a new jumper!

From there we’ll get into some intermediate jumping topics, then intermediate “plus,” which is just my way of saying “tough, not tough to the max… tough that’s still doable.”

After that we’ll rock out some advanced topics and then we’ll finish up with some thoughts on Mindset and Trends in the jump rope community.

You can listen to the podcast on Apple PodcastsSpotify, Google Podcasts, Amazon MusicStitcher, Overcast, or on your favorite podcast platform.
