I was trying to learn how to do the alternate foot jump while skipping but i couldn' get it down for the life of me... thats when i searched the net and found this great site. http://www.jumpropeinstitute.com/a-z_on_jump_rope.htm#develop basic jr capacity it helped me get some info on jump ropes. I thought i'd share it for some people that might have been on the same page as me. it's also got diagrams for different techniques... it's rather sweet. It's helped me a lot.
