How to Measure Your Jump Rope

March 24, 2013


Your jump rope comes with plenty of cable which allows the shortest or tallest athletes to use our jump ropes. You can easily adjust the length with a screwdriver and a scissor or wire cutter.

The proper way to measure your jump rope is by the following:
 
-Take the jump rope in either hand and step on the center of the rope with both feet together.
 
-Pull the jump rope handles up and towards your arm pits.
 
-The edge of the jump rope should come up to the base of your arm pits. If the handles don't reach your arm pits you need a longer rope. If the handles are up by your shoulders then you'll need a shorter rope.



 
How to Adjust:
1. Remove only one plastic end cap and loosen the bolt with a screwdriver
2. Take a heavy duty pair of scissors or wire cutters and cut where needed
3. Replace plastic end cap and lock bolt
