Sizing your Survival and Cross speed rope is very important to maximize your workout. If the rope is too short, you might have difficulty in jumping and passing the rope under your feet. If it's too long, you stand the chance of getting whipped up by the lightning fast cable! It doesn't feel good!
Now here's a big shocker some might have never considered:
There is no perfect length.
It all depends on your style of jumping and how you operate your jump rope. As your skill increases, your taste in the length of your jump rope will change. So do NOT cut your jump rope too short at first. Take time to get used to your cable jump rope before you cut off the extra length.
If there is excess cable after you've adjusted it, you can take wire cutters and cut the extra off so it doesn't get in the way of your workout. We suggest leaving a few extra inches though just in case you need to modify the length of the rope in the future.
Be sure to replace the black rubber end caps so your cable rope doesn't fray over time!
