I absolutely love jump rope. It really does put a smile on my face, and makes my time at the gym fly by. But I never count my revolutions. I usually jump rope to the beat of music from my ipod, and do sessions from 30-45 min. Do I have to count? Or can I just do my thing.

I am new to the team...and will begin this challenge on Monday.

As for who I am, my name is Julia and I am getting married on December 21, 2007. I used to jump rope back in highschool when I was active in competitive kickboxing...I remember it was a dandy of a warm up!!!

AS for what kind of rope that I own...I forgot the brand name, but it's a professional rope. It is made out of 100% leather with wooden handles and rotates using ballbearings.

It's a great rope and leaves bad bruises and welts when it hits your feet. All the more reason, to make sure I clear the rope! When I used to train, we had to jump rope barefoot for just that reason.

I got mine at Walmart for $2.99 in the exercise equipment section. And be sure to check out that article. I didn't know how long it should be until I read it.

I would suggest starting out a few minutes each day and slowly increasing your time over the month. A little bit of jarring is good I think for bone building. Jumping is very good at keeping us from getting weak bones, it is considered a weight bearing exercise! Good for us! It is nice to have you here. SP just did an article about jumping that has encouraged me to get with it again too! See you around.

Hi everyone! I'm glad to be around like-minded people who can keep me encouraged! After a few weeks of contemplation I just went out and bought a jump rope. I know it's supposed to be really good for you. I'm working on my goal to lose 20 lbs. and thought this would be a good kick start. However I'd forgotten to take into account that I'm not a kid anymore and even with a mat and proper shoes, it still seemed a bit jarring. Any tips?
