      You’ve probably figured this out by now, but it may be the length of the rope you’re using. Too long or too short.

    • Niva💚 on November 4, 2022 at 5:17 am

      Same problem. Im like out of tune

    • My Jennie Unnie on November 10, 2022 at 12:04 pm

      Same here bro, my whole class is able to do it except me. So what’s the use of being the topper of the class?

  2. Aysha Hiba on July 1, 2020 at 6:21 am

    Haven’t done it in so many years. I always wonder how I used to do it as a child

    Hello there! I’ve seen so many “how to’s” of jumproping and yours, by far was the easiest to understand. You made it so simple. Thank you!! I shared your video on my Facebook page. Hope you don’t mind. 🙂

  4. Melizma Tea on July 9, 2020 at 5:31 am

    I like how she describes everything so quickly – not so quickly that one can’t understand, but no dilly-dallying around! To the point! I’m going to try this…I used to love jump-rope but I know this is going to kill me at first! Inspiring video.

    • El Panesito on January 8, 2021 at 3:30 pm

      How did it go?

    • Crux Crumble on March 1, 2021 at 12:08 am

      Ayo, we need an update!

    • Uncle Vu Jump Rope on January 10, 2022 at 5:06 pm

      Thanks for your video, we perform jump rope challenge in Helsinki, Finland. The idea is to jump rope any where any time in every city we live and travel to. Feel free to watch our videos here during Lux Helsinki 2022

    • Paige Inia on October 4, 2022 at 2:30 am

      Absolutely, I completely agree!

    • o on November 15, 2022 at 5:19 pm

      God bless, hoping y’all have a great rest and safe of your week

  5. Glorious is Jesus on July 11, 2020 at 3:03 am

    Thank you very much for the tips. I couldn’t even finish ten jump ropes at first but after trying out the tips which you’ve mentioned in this video, I could do better. And I wasn’t out of breath too.

  6. opinion ated on July 28, 2020 at 2:59 am

    I was doing it correctly, but after 3 days of jumping rope for 300-500 turns each day, my back thigh muscles cramped, and my right knee gave out. Now, I’m taking a break from jump rope. I shouldn’t have pushed myself hard considering I haven’t jumped rope in a long time, but I was so enjoying it so much more than running that it didn’t feel like I was pushing it. I guess my mind and body say different things. I am going to strengthen my knee and thighs so that I can go back to jumping again.

  7. BrëdSlayer on August 11, 2020 at 5:30 am

    Started jumping rope after years and years just a couple of days ago, at first I couldn’t even do much but literally in 2 days I’ve gotten so much better, gotten faster than I ever was and I even got rid of my double jump

  8. Evelina on March 4, 2021 at 4:00 pm

    For a beginner like me this was beyond helpful! I was wasting so much energy thinking i burned more calories. 😅

  9. Aishwarya on June 26, 2021 at 2:01 pm

    I wasn’t able to even skip once properly but now that I’ve tried what you told me, I can do a continuous 6 skips and I’m a beginner.

  10. F Pitts on August 22, 2021 at 12:32 pm

    Good video. Jumping rope came easy as a child but not so much as an adult. These tips are so helpful. Can’t wait to try💫

  11. Pauline Soo on August 24, 2021 at 10:13 am

    It actually literally improved my skipping skill. Way to go! Thanks to your videos

  12. J. Rin on October 5, 2021 at 9:04 am

    I was never athletic as a child and I’m learning this for the first time as a teen. I could not even do ten skips in a row but this video helped me a lot! Thank you very much!

    • FashionGlobally. on May 29, 2022 at 4:32 pm

    • Kitty Litty on November 28, 2022 at 3:41 pm

      girl shut the f up i can’t even do 5 CUZ IT JUST STOPS

  14. nami on November 17, 2021 at 5:53 am

    Thank you so much for this tutorial! It’s my first day today doing this and at first I thought I could do it just by myself because back then when I was a kid, I was really good at this. I wasted an hour and felt so exhausted trying to figure how to do it properly. Then I searched for tutorials and applied what they taught but nothing worked out for me until I came across your video. I did exactly everything you said in the video and keep trying and finally I did it after a few minutes. I did 25 skips so far. Thank youuu!

  15. KEZE on February 10, 2022 at 10:30 pm

    thank you for the video. all the info one would need to practice proper form. i particularly was looking for how to keep the core engaged while jumping rope, and you had explained that phenomenally. thank you again, much appreciated – wishing you all the best Ms. Kloots

  16. OJ Cruz on July 14, 2022 at 2:16 am

    This is how a tutorial should be! Straightforward and awesome.

  17. Cortnee Muhlbauer on August 23, 2022 at 5:10 pm

    Thank you… I didn’t realize how uncoordinated I was until trying to jump rope after 20+ years

  18. Boopy2t on September 6, 2022 at 10:37 am

    Omg I wasn’t doing more than 3. Half way in the video I can do it consistently now. Thanks!

    • Well+Good on September 6, 2022 at 2:10 pm

      Amazing! So glad it was helpful! ✨

  19. Schizo Frenzia on October 5, 2022 at 10:48 am

    Thank you sooooo much been trying for months and in one video went from 2 in a row to honestly 5 jumps in a row

  20. Elite_Ranger on December 10, 2022 at 8:12 pm

    I’ve done everything. I’ve watched over ten tutorials, but I just can’t do it. Wtf
