    Jumping rope speed

    Hello folks...
    Until recently I used to jump rope as cardio, due to lockdown (fidel runner here)... I do about 30' straight of about 180-200 RPM... I knew it was fast, but today I realized that "fast" is considered around 120-160 RPM... And I cannot but wonder: could this prolonged stress at my feet be responsible for my back to back metatarsalgia? I think it is...
    Do lower revolutions offer aerobic exercise?
    Thanks in advance!

    30min of jumping is hardcore. Lower revs will still provide a solid cardio workout.
    I can definitely see it being hard on your feet.
    Do you have good, well fitted shoes that provide adequate arch support?

      Io6 As it turned out... No..... What is the right type though? I don't want to ruin my "good" running shoes so, it's either a cheaper running shoe, or boxing shoes... Can you tell me what to look for and if you have any preference between the two types?

        I wear my running shoes for work outs involving prolonged bouncing or running type movements because I overpronate and will cripple myself without them.
        Since you are trying to preserve your shoes you could try either of the other options but using an insert for additional support. Remember to play with the lacing a bit to find your sweet spot, particularly if you go with the boxing shoe.
