Sizing: Begin by putting 1 foot on the rope and stand upright so the handles are even on both sides. Pull the cable tot until it hits right around the bottom of your armpit.
Cutting the Rope: There are 2 ends of the rope; one end has a fix clasp, the other end has a clasp which is removable with a mini Phillips head screw driver. Loosen the screw and remove the end cap. Slide the clasps down until you are comfortable with the size of the rope. Tighten the rope and trim the excess the rope off with a cable cutter. Finally, put the end cap back on the end of the rope. One of the things to listen for is whether the jump rope slaps in front of you. This will lead bouncing and possibly tripping on the rope. Alternatively if it never touches the ground, the rope may be too short. To be proficient at a movement such as double unders, you want the rope to never touch the floor but not be too short. A recommended suggestion would be to play around with the sizing prior to cutting.
Maintenance: Cable ropes are prone to curling. Here are some tips on our to keep your ropes working for years; Hang rope over a hook to let it straighten out. OR you can also keep it lying loosely in a workout bag. Do not wrap it around the handles. When jumping, if you are using correct form and the cord has been adjusted, the arc will straighten as you are jumping. Avoid jumping in or storing the jump rope in cold temperatures such as a garage or in the trunk of a car. It will make the cord stiff and can also cause it to break when jumping.
Avoid jumping on concrete as it can wear the cord out. Jumping on other hard surfaces such as tile can also cause undue stress to your joints and/or shin splints.
