    yeah that could be a lot of things.

    it could be your form/technique, it could be the repetitive stress of doing something new before you conditioned your body to be use to it and your core strength wasnt up to handling it, it could be that your stomping when you land instead of staying light on your feet(you want to be jumping on the balls of your feet instead of flat footed- dont let your heals touch the ground)

    jump roping definitely brings your upper body into play and back pain isnt that uncommon, but its usually either due to improper technique or a muscular or back issue.


    once you are fully healed, i would start jumping rope again slow and easy this time. If you still have issues, i would get it checked out. its hard without seeing you to see if your technique is off, just remember to be really light on your feet, keep your elbows in, try not to bend your knees too much and if you can dont just hop up and down on both feet, try to kind of alternate them.. ill try to find a video of someone doing jump rope with good form to help you out and make sure your technique is right

    maybe you need to bring up your back and delts. try these out (maybe wth just the bar or something) chest supported t-bar row, upright row, deadlift, glute ham raise, romanian deadlift, and the god of back builders- the deadlift. for your delts you can do overhead dumbbell press, side lateral raise, and rows.

    makes a world of difference what kind of sneakers u jumping rope with

    i was fucking my back up everytime i jumped with regular adidas sneakers, until i got some nice bouncy running shoes. then i could jump for a while long without any type of pain

    i started fucking with these heavenly sneaks.. its like jumping on clouds

    [​IMG]

    theres 2 surfaces your jumping on... the ground, and the soles of ur shoes

    the harder both these surfaces are, the harder its gonna be on ur body

    could just be ur core (abs, hips, back, etc) then

    everytime u go running, walking, jumping, or anything... ur core has to take the impact

    i had a weak ass core a while back, i couldnt even go jogging without having back pain later from the shock

    just like Ben said.. ur core might just be weak from taking time off for so long... strengthen ur core so it can take that impact from jumping up & down again

    Adidas mega/micro bounce sorta suck imo....well, I liked them at first. Still like them better than 360's...I have 2 pair. But they really should be more bouncy....but the bottoms are more like plastic rather than the bouncy rubber you expect them to be.
    Asics Kayano, Kinetic and Kinsei are great. Brooks and Mizuno as ugly as they are have great running/training shoes too.

    and did someone on here say you can get a j-rope around 10-30 times? lol I'm hoping they meant something else.

    after u wear them in they squeak when u walk too

    i cant workout without music, so i dont hear the squeak during running or jumping, but its annoying when i dont have the headphones on

    probably will try something else out later this year
