jump rope skills to master

Jump Rope Skill Checklist – 21 Skills and Counting

If you are picking up the jump rope, this is a fun list to work your way through. Other websites might suggest that you can learn these skills in just a few days, but that was not the case for me. You don’t have to master a new skill every day, it’s fun to learn them at any pace.

I’ll walk you through the skills at a slower pace. You don’t have to have six-pack abs, be a professional athlete or be under thirty to learn tons of jump rope skills.

It can take weeks and months to perfect a skill. If you want to learn jump rope for the sheer joy of jumping, and the challenge it can provide for coordination, this list is for you. This is a place where you can see an average (over 50 person) learn the skills.

Here’s a list of jump rope skills, which I will keep building and sharing.
