“The sky is not really the limit, the sky is the beginning with jump rope!” —Jude Coe
I’ve been connected with Jude Coe aka Jump Rope Veteran for around a year now and I’ve been watching him consistently put out very thoughtful, objective videos about jump rope over on his YouTube channel. It was about time we had a formal chat, and boy did he deliver! We talk about so many different subjects in this episode, including the top things to know as a beginner jump roper, why Jude is so passionate about making objective videos, regression analysis of heart rate, how jump rope helps self-esteem, and so much more.
Do not miss the show notes on this one because the links to the books and references are most likely going to be life changing. Specifically make sure to check out the Desdirata poem. If you’re looking for a swift hit of positivity and calm, that’ll do the trick. Also make sure to checkout his YouTube page @JumpRopeVeteran because there’s a bunch of great videos over there, including his podcast where he also talks with jumpers.
