[su_dropcap]Y[/su_dropcap]ou might think you know all about jump rope. There’s the basic, easy jump rope kids learn at a playground with some cool tricks requiring more skill and experience. It’s also a great workout as professional trainers and fitness experts often recommend jump rope as an aerobic exercise alternative to running or riding bikes. Elite jump rope athletes and competitive teams, however, take the technique of the sport to remarkably high levels in single freestyle, single speed, pairs, three person speed (‘double dutch’), and three person freestyle (double dutch freestyle).
