KB3 day 1

Woo whoooo! I'm so excited for this final round of the Body trilogy. Today's workout got the blood pumping but not difficult. I'm a little disappointed with my jump rope performance. I think I need to shorten my rope or perhaps get a speed rope. 89 days left. :0)

I can see you are starting off in a far better place than I! But I will catch you by the end!
Definitely shorter rope - just long enough to get it over the head will do!

                  "Not difficult?" Kim you are a machine. I bow down at your feet. I was wiped after that workout :-(

                      Elissa, I just got a new RX rope, following the site's guideline for rope length and it seems way too long. Am interested in your comment--that it just has to be long enough to get over your head. Perhaps the length of thus new one is why I am tripping a lot.

                        @Susan - I like the ends of my rope at nipple height when I'm standing on the rope with only 1 foot - so that's a good bit shorter than the official recommendation. I went gradually shorter bit by bit before I found that point. Did go too short once, luckily the type of rope I have I was able to get back the extra inch I needed by moving the crimp inside the handle. But obviously be careful about over-shortening!
                        One other caveat - with the shorter rope - when I do brush the rope a bit underfoot, sometimes it manages to get back up and smack me in the back of the head. I don't remember that happening before...

                          What rope do you use now?

                            Thanks, Elissa. Helpful advice. I'm still trying to figure out the rope length. I join Jessica in asking which rope you use...

                              I use a Valeo rope - simple and cheap! Have never even tried any of those fancy RX or Buddy Lee as I've always been happy with this one.

                                Wow Kim, you are starting off in really good shape. I wonder what new levels of fitness you will achieve over the next three months.
