My youngest daughter gave me a first class jump rope for Fathers Day. She had me try jumping rope on my last visit when she took me to do one of her Crossfit sessions. I had never tried to jump rope before and had little success at it, so she had me do a different jumping exercise in place of jumping rope. When I first tried to jump the rope (actually it is a plastic covered cable attached to a pair of handle with ball bearings) I had pretty much the same result as when visiting her, but with practice I am happy to say that I am improving. I am now jumping more than 100 times in succession and I plan to soon attempt "double unders". It just goes to show that you can teach an old dog a new trick if he wants to learn. Why not try something new today?
