Jump Rope Challenge

An Oldie but Goodie

With so many cool workouts, you might be asking why we would pick a jump rope challenge. The simple answer is that its efficient, low cost, portable, and fun. It's also an important movement skill that every child should master. Plus, for adults, jumping rope can burn a ton of calories. 

Start by picking out a good rope that is durable for both indoor and outdoor use. We  recommend a cable rope, especially if being used by kids. Then size the rope so that it fits your height. Check the length by standing on the rope with one foot and bringing both handles up towards your body. The bottom of the handle should be just below your armpit. Another good measure is that the rope should be 3 feet taller than your height.

Get started with this instructional video for kids and then go for the 30-day Jump Rope Challenge by Darebee. To keep the kids engaged, try these fun jump rope games. They will bring back memories.
