Why Sizing Your Skipping Rope is Important
Skipping ropes come in different sizes or can be cut down in length, and getting the right length for your height and skill level can greatly impact your skipping experience.
If your rope is too long, you risk tripping over it, and if it's too short, you may hit your toes or ankles.
How to Size Your Skipping Rope
To determine the right length for your skipping rope, follow these simple steps:
- Stand on the middle of the rope with one foot and pull the handles up to your chest. Make sure to exclude the handles and only measure the length of the cable.
- The length of the cable should end at your mid-chest, or upper chest if you're a beginner. For more experienced skippers, the length can end at your lower chest for a faster and more challenging workout.
- Adjust the length of your skipping rope accordingly, either by tying knots in the rope or by using the adjustable feature on certain ropes.
