Iffy, Start slow and don't over do if you're 50-60 lbs over weight. Even a 10-20 lbs over is a lot to ask to be jumping like a kid. If you're like me, the achilles will give out first. I used to wonder how Petalia jumped in the thousands. With her 11% BF now I see why. It's a totally different story than most of us. Have fun.

Hi! It's good to see you here. We are both on the "Yoga Lovers" team. I do enjoy your contributions to the threads there. I've been jumping rope just about every day since late last winter. When I finally took my shoes off, I began to be able to jump way better, without mistakes and jumping for long periods of time. Something I find yoga and jumping rope have in common is the need for focus, total mindfulness. Breathe synchronized to movement is also important to both. I've found jumping rope is one of those things I could actually get better at pretty quickly and improvement was quite linear. At first I could only jump a few times before I messed up. Last summer, I jumped 2,300 times before messing up. These days I'm not jumping for such long periods of time at all. I hope you have fun.
