How to improve your running, by jumping a rope

It doesn't take state-of-the-art equipment or a highly paid trainer to help you improve your running. All you need is rope and space to jump. All the abilities for running better, coordination, speed and endurance, are ones that are enhanced when you engage in a serious jump rope workout. Jumping rope will improve your stride rate and stamina and can help strengthen your ankles to keep you stable and injury-free when running. Use the jump rope to warm up before a run or as a workout alternative when the weather keeps you off the trail.
