Improve your running cadence by jumping rope
Jumping rope is more than just a great cardiovascular exercise. It also improves the elasticity of your feet and lower legs to rebound off the ground quicker, which is helpful for your run stride.
Jumping rope improves cadence, and helps you become more springy.
If you try to jump rope and you feel like you have no spring or can’t get off the ground quickly enough to get the rope under your feet, try it without the jump rope.
Just use the same motion with an imaginary jump rope.
If you want a challenge, try one-legged jumps too.
Ideally, you are jumping barefoot or in 5-finger Vibram shoes on a soft surface, like the grass, track, or hardwood floor.
