Skipping ropes are very cheap and available in sports retailers. Also, you can even make your own. To ensure that your rope is the right length for your height, stand on the middle of the rope and pull the handles upwards till the rope is tight. The handles should be in line with the middle of your chest.

Skipping is a high-impact activity, that is good for bone strength. Besides a good quality rope it is also essential that you wear suitable footwear. The action of skipping – particularly if you go to some slightly more advanced movements – means that your shoes need some lateral stability to offer support for your feet. Cross-training shoes that unite stability with cushioning are best.

Cushioned training shoes alone are not the only consideration that you require to be aware of. In fact, you should practice your skipping on a ‘giving’ surface like a sprung gym floor, an exercise mat, or a carpet. By skipping on a cushioned surface in correct footwear, you will prevent any lower leg problems that result from influences – such as shin splints.
