    I'm not a fan of jumping rope. If you don't wear a really firm sports bra it gets pretty uncomfortable. Having said all of this, a younger lady should well be all right. Jumping would be good for the bones, and if you are young enough it shouldn't be harmful to the knees.

  • I'd love to jump rope with you and a good sports bra. At one point, I even looked into becoming a Jumping Rope coach for kids!
