Jump Rope Exercises for Boxing : Jumping Rope on a Mat


The next area we want to look at is, we’re
going to call the jump rope mat. Ideally, through the actual design of jump roping,
you’re putting a lot of torque on those lower muscles in your legs but also the bones in
your feet and stuff. So you want to be jump roping on a good surface. In the mat here,
the mat in the ring is a really ideal place to jump rope and we’ll see a lot of boxers
come in here and jump rope. They’ll each pick a corner and they’ll actually do their jump
roping, if the gym is slow on that particular day. A lot of the boxers will not jump anywhere
else except for the ring. But if you can’t jump rope in the ring, what you should have
is what they call a jump rope mat and this is about a three foot square shock absorbing
thing that you can actually lay out and put on the floor. Sometimes a good carpeted room,
even wood is less forgiving than concrete, but try not to jump rope on strictly concrete
floors in your gym. Make sure you can either get into the ring and jump rope or actually
have a jump rope mat. Save your feet.
