The simple jump rope can be a powerful tool in increasing your jump reach. Here's a simple regimine for using your rope at the beginning of the season:
Week One: Begin with a simple two-leg jump, do sets of 25 at first, with a one minute rest in between. Then, as you feel more able, increase to 50 jumps. Do each in 2 sets, four times a week.
Weeks Two through Eight: Do one-leg jumps, again beginning with 25 and increasing to 50, with one minute breaks, two sets a day, four times a week.
Jump ropes cost little, but their benefits can be very valuable. Don't overlook these simple, but effective, training tools.
