    I couldn't find my jump rope so I used a telephone cord and kept hitting the back of my head and almost falling flat on my face many times.

    yes, I'm just not very good at it. Shit was embarrasing when I couldn't pull it off in Phys Ed class in front of girls.

    I can pull it off if I raise my left foot first then my right, but I can't do it if I try to raise both feet simultaneously.
    I searched for jump rope videos and found this
    Fire Jump Rope :rofl:

    People who have never learned to jump rope or have a tough time with the technique are embarrasssed because of their poor form and constant mistakes while jumping. This is precisely what makes jumping rope great.

    Jumping rope is barely possible with poor form or poor technique. Everyone will make consistent mistakes and be interrupted by a rope that catches on a foot. The rope is the coach. Jumping rope is what I call a self-limiting exercise. Participants are limited in their ability to perform the exercise by lack of technique. In other words, truly poor technique will prevent the participant from performing the exercise, so bad movement patterns cannot be reinforced. This is the most important reason for jumping rope. It is possible to perform sprints, shuttles, and agility work with poor form as long as times are adequated. Other forms of popular endurance work such as jogging, cycling, and rowing can also allow poor form without supervision and coaching. Poor form can be reinforced without the athlete ever realizing it.
