I count/ed jumps. I haven't jumped in a while, so I don't know how I will do it this time.

For me, there was always the ability to stop, but only when I got to a good stopping point. I have always been able to keep up with the number of jumps, for some reason. And if not, I go back to the number I remember.

I think I would be too tempted to stop if I counted minutes. The other reason for me to count jumps is that counting also helps me to keep my rhythm, which has much to do with target heart rate.

Hi all,

I'm new here. Thanks for letting me be a part of the team. Are there posted suggestions, goals, targets for the jump rope exercise?

Time is probably best, since that is what we use on Sparkpeople to track calories. (That would be a time of consistent jumping) That's my opinion.

I always start off with counting my jumps. But then I get off track. Seems like for me minutes are easier to count.

Goals Jan 29- 208
Feb 27-199

I usually jump for a certain amount of time. I do not count the amount of jumps unless I am bored or needing to take my mind off wanting to stop.

I would just5 say get out there and jump rope. If you feel like counting minutes then I recommend counting how many skips in one minute then multiplying. But I am not the one in charge here.

Hi everyone. I'm new to the site and just wondering if instead of counting skips we can go for time? Glad to be here and am looking forward to having lots of fun. emoticon
