Yes it is! Jump rope is considered a low level plyometric exercise, a low impact exercise. High level plyometric exercises are bad for weak knees. You should always be careful though. Try to land on the balls of your feet and not the heels and make sure to keep your knees lax. It is always a good idea to consult with your athlete/physiotherapist/trainer.

Can anyone tell me any basic back exercises for strengthening and pain relief?


Here are two exercises that I like to use for my back. They aren't complicated to do, you just need a bit of space;

Back Flexion Exercise;

Lie on your back and pull your knees to your chest while stretching the head forward, until a comfortable stretch is felt.

Knee to Chest Stretch;

Lie on your back with your knees bent and both heels on the floor. Put both hands behind one knee and pull it up to your chest.

What is a jump rope workout for a beginner?


I jump for 30 seconds and then rest for 60 seconds and do this about 3-4 times in a row. I do this 3 times a week with a day break between each workout. Once I manage to do this without dying, I'll start jumping for longer amounts of time before taking a break.

How long should your jump rope be for exercising?



If you are 6 feet or shorter, than the rope should be 9 feet long. This is the standard jump rope size found in stores. If you are over 6 feet then you'll need a 10 foot rope. Generally, when you hold the rope and stand on the middle with your feet, each end should reach your arm pit.
