    I've decided to take up skipping to try improve my fitness and speed but I can't do it where I only jump once. Every time the wire goes around I jump twice. I've tried picking up the speed but then I mess up. Has anyone got any tips?

    In that case, is it just a beginners thing? I never used to skip when I was little.

    As long as you're still managing to keep going does it even matter? I guess watch some YouTube videos to see if it's a common thing and anybody has said anything about it and just keep trying.

    As the saying goes:
    Practice makes perfect
    As suggested above, check out some YouTube videos for tips and don't give up!
