Just got a decent rope

How do you get the length right?

Thanks

Stand on the middle. The handles should reach your armpits.

Just curious, but what brand/style of rope did you get? Can you get a quality speed rope at a large sporting good store, or do I need to go online. A post in the archives recommended jumprope.com or a buddylee (??) site?

Thanks for the quick response Matthew. I'm about 6'1", so am thinking I would need a 10 ft rope? Does that sound right to you? Also, can I get a rope like this at a sporting good store, or would I need to get it through the internet. Obviously, it would be great if I could go pick one up this weekend. Anyway, thanks again.

I went to Home Depot today and bought a 10' chunk of cable ($3.70), like you would tie your dog out on. I used it for the "Filthy Fifties" and got blisters on the inside of my forefingers. Any ideas on what to add on as a handle?

I am 6ft tall and a 9ft rope is perfect for me.
