# 3 Mini-Trampoline

Third, if you lose energy to do more jumps, put off the rope before you finish the routine while at the same maintaining your arms and legs in motion. Fourth, in order to know if it is the perfect jump rope for you, put your leg at the middle of it and pull the handles; if they are past the armpits, then you should find another one.

Furthermore, extra weight means extra effort to do the routines, so you will burn more fats. So get a set of weights now. It is recommended, however that they should weigh enough to challenge at every final repetition of each set, which usually ranges from five to ten pounds.
