Is skipping good for running?

  • Skipping can be a great supplement to your running and could even help you run better, faster and with greater enjoyment.

    Skipping can help improve your running speed, foot strength, balance, coordination and aerobic and anaerobic fitness.

    Remember to stay light on your toes and keep your spine straight, head up and eyes forward. If you haven't skipping for a long time start adding it into your programme very gradually to avoid injury.
