Hey Guys I`ve been working out on my bag for few years now, but have never done any rope jumping.. yeah i know i just figured it won`t help me that much since i don`t train boxing professionaly, but just as a form of exercise and self defence... plus i believe it has helped my shoulder(from all those jabs ) regain its strenght from a weightlifting injury... unfortunately my other shoulder/back side of it got worse(from power punches)
I have to stop heavybag for few months because i need it to heal... so i was wondering to do some rope jumping not to get my legs stiff.. so i never got myself a rope... i`m 6 feet tall and i`m not sure what lenght of a rope should i get? 8 feet? 9 feet? 10 feet?? Thanks a lot guys!

I am 5'11", and I use a 9ft rope cut down to 8.5ft. If I use a 9ft, I trip over it like a schoolgirl.

I'm 6'3" and always have trouble getting a rope long enough I also think it has something to do with my stupid u.s size 15 banana feet! i keep catching my toes and then theres the shin splints, remind me why do we skip again?
