Speed & Freestyle Rope Guide

 

Length 

There is no “right” length. Focus on pinpointing your style and adjusting the rope to your identity and objective. A common method as a starting point, is to step on the center of the cord and have the end of the jump rope handles reach directly below your chest plate. The ropes can be cut or knotted to your desired measure. 

TMPLO ropes come in a 9ft length; this is much longer than the average needed length to provide flexibility for using knots on the 0101. Speed Rope and extra beads for replacements on the 0102. Freestyle Rope. 

Form

Focus on your hand position and wrist action while adjusting depending on the rope length. We highly recommend placing your hands near your pockets while jumping in a direct vertical line below the shoulders. This takes time and practice as our hand posture naturally is separated from our torso when first learning to jump. As you progress your skillset and your hands are closer to the pocket position, you can start to reduce the rope size depending on your desired style.
