Health Tip: Pick Up a Jump Rope For Fitness

(HealthDay News) -- Jumping rope is a great form of cardiovascular exercise, and it can be a lot of fun to pick one up and blow off steam.

The American Council on Exercise offers these guidelines:

  • Hold the handles nearest the end of the rope with a light grip.
  • Tuck elbows close to your body and keep your shoulders relaxed.
  • Slightly bend your knees and keep your head up with your back straight.
  • Use your wrist to turn the rope and make sure it forms a smooth arc over your head.
  • Minimize impact on your knees and ankles by jumping slowly.
