Start slowly and pay special attention to stretching calves. Begin with 2 to 4 sets of 100 to 200 jumps per set. Try to average at least 100 revolutions per minute and build your pulse rate up to 150 beats per minute. Believe it or not, that simple jump rope confidence and change more people's fitness levels.
