    Jumping Rope & Bad Lower Back Pain

    Basically, right after Christmas, I started jumping rope outside in a yard. I would do it EVERY day, it was a 4lb Weighted Rope, and I did 6 sets of 50 reps. After about the 10th or 11th consecutive day, I noticed real bad back pain. I took a day off, it healed a bit, then tried another session of jump rope. My lower back hurt again.

    My guess is that my technique is off, OR the weighted rope is having a worse effect than an unweighted rope. Is there anything I can do to solve this problem besides doing another form of cardio?

    With the weighted jump rope, I actually felt like it cut my body into a tighter form. I heard that when men jump rope, they jump crooked. Could this be why I'm getting lower back pain? It felt like my hip was being disconnected...

    It could be your technique. If you think it from the weighted jump rope then have you tried a regular jump rope to at least try and get better form.

    Could have been my form. Could have been the weighted rope. Either way, I dropped it. It was definitely one of my favorite types of cardio though. Worked the upper & lower body. I don't have a regular jump rope at home, and don't plan on getting one. Thanks anyway, reps.

    My guess is that it is just the repetative stress of doing something new EVERY day, before you conditioned your body to be use to it. Your core strength probably wasn't up to handling it.

    Once you are fully healed, start adding it back in slowly this time. If you still have issues, then it's a technique issue.

    Seeing it could be pain you could be strengthening your core and the pain could also be a form of DOMS. You can either try splitting it up more and just do it 2-3 times a week and see if it helps OR go to one of those sports doctors just incase you risk any permanent damage to your back.

    i had the same problem until someone at the gym/karate (cant remember) pointed out my posture. I was hunching a little when i landed. Straightened up and it was fine.

    Have used weighted ropes before but with no back pain. But I also wasn't doing it everyday either. Now, I do jump 5-6 days a week, before weight lifting and a bit after, and my hops are there. I know 500 is the min I do and am pretty sure I have gotten close to the 1000 mark before..... and fast too!!!! Simple basic 2 legs and running in place work for me.

    later

    i think you should stop jumping ropes lower back pain is nothing to be F___

    with. you can ignore my advice and keep on jumping but incase the pain

    became permenant you only got yourself to blame so avoid it and choose

    another form of cardio. running stairs works well for ppl you might wanna try it
