Also, a very important note on technique. Many people find rope skipping hard and tiring because they use their arms to turn the rope. You need to start the rope moving before you start jumping to build its momentum, and then once you start jumping, ONLY your wrists turn the rope to keep it going round. Your shoulders should never be sore. Also by not turning with your wrists, you naturally tense up your shoulders and chest which brings the rope higher off the ground and leads to more misses.
