A generally effective method for adjusting your jump rope.

A jump rope measurement technique that most of us generally work with is:

1. Unfold its jump rope while holding it and place one foot on the ground on it to separate it into 2 halves.

2. Stretch the rope up to bring the future location of the handles up to the chest. Start with a height that does not exceed the armpits to start, but it is better to measure it a little taller to start and adjust it later than to cut it too short for your preferences from the start.

3. Some people will prefer their rope a little shorter or a little longer. So start from this technique and adjust the rope by shortening it as needed according to your preferences!

Here is a video to help you visualize the technique. The explanations are in English, but will allow you to follow the steps to adjust the length of your jump rope!
