How To Jump Rope Fast For Boxing | Jump Rope Sprint Workout To Increase Your Speed


Yo! do you like to go fast? Are you like my boy Maverick and you got the
need, the need for speed? My name is Kyle Eastern. I’m with Jump15.com and this video I’m going
to show you how to jump rope fast. Because hey jump rope skills in and of themselves
are awesome. But when you master jump rope speed and then
you add in coordination, agility, and finesse, it takes you to a whole new level of awesome. And not only that, it’s going to take your
jump rope work outs to a whole other level as well. So if you’re ready to add speed to your jump
rope game, let’s do this. The number one skill in learning to jump rope
fast is learning how to jump low. This is a learned skill and I suggest practicing
without your jump rope first. Notice that no knee flex is occurring. This movement is done through the ankle and
is a very abbreviated beginning of a calf raise with a slight raise of the toes. Compare this with what most people do, jumping
through the toes generating more force and height. This leaves you in the air longer and makes
your rope tempo slower. Once you get the feel for the low jump without
your rope add your jump rope into the mix. Start with a single jump and reset is shown
here. See how low you can jump with the rope still
passing under your feet. This drill will help you gain confidence that
the rope will make it under your feet even while you’re jumping really low. Now you can practice jumping consecutively. When learning this myself I like to ease my
way into the new faster speed by starting slower with a higher jump and gradually lowering
my jump and increasing my rope speed. This way you can find a faster speed that
you are still comfortable maintaining and over time continue to push your limits without
constant trip ups. Rope length is important here. You want your jump rope to be skimming the
floor. Having too much rope hit the floor can cause
it to kick up into your feet. This problem can be magnified when combod
with a low jump. Here I am using the boxer skip skill. As you can see I’m still jumping very low
which allows me to keep the rope speed up. If you want to learn the boxer skip I have
this tutorial linked in the top right of the screen. For developing max speed you need to use the
alternate leg or sprint skill shown here. It is like running in place and allows you
to go much faster than any other skill. Again, start slow and gradually increase speed
so you can get the feel for the footwork and maintain control. Practice getting up to your highest speed
in which you can maintain for 15 to 30 seconds and do intervals such as ten sets of 15 to
30 seconds jump rope sprints with 15 second rests between. Getting good at speeding up and slowing down
is going to give you great tempo control. This will help you develop good feel for your
rope and allow you to change speed at any given time. If you want to maximize your rope speed, you
can play around with shortening your rope. Just be careful if you are cutting your rope,
a little goes a long way and you can’t put it back. As you fatigue pay careful attention to form
and technique. Wrist rotation can get out of sync with one
another or stop all together on one side. One or both hands can arise out of position
causing you to trip up. If trip ups start occurring the first thing
to check is form and technique. All right, are you ready to jump rope fast? Let’s do a quick recap. Number one, you want to learn to jump low. Two, you want to be able to gradually increase
and decrease your jump rope speed so you can gain overall rope control. Three, do interval work of 15 to 30 seconds
in order to increase your jump rope speed stamina. And four, always jump with form and technique
in mind so you don’t engrain bad habits because that’s only going to set you back in the long
run. If you enjoyed this video hit that like button
