Best Jump Rope Music Playlists

Nov 10, 2023Jordan Lindstrom
So you’ve got your jump rope, it’s sized properly, and you’re ready to get to work.
However, you’re not quite sure what the best songs to jump rope to are.
Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!

First, ask yourself: "What am looking to do with my jump rope?"

Depending on your objectives, you’ll want to consider the pace or tempo (also known as BPM – “beats per minute”) of the music you’ll be listening to.

A song with a higher BPM (125+) is usually best for practicing things that require a higher level of exertion, like double unders or speed jumping.

It’s also a great pace for practicing CrossFit.

For freestyle jumping, you may want to opt for music with a slightly slower tempo

A BPM of 110-125 will allow you to transition in and out of different moves and tricks, while still keeping a relatively solid pace.

When it comes to general fitness, the pace or tempo of your music can change depending on the level of your workout’s intensity.

For a warm-up, you may want something a little slower. Alternatively, toward the end of your workout, you may want something more explosive

The pace at which you jump will ultimately determine how many calories you’re able to burn.

Jumping at a faster pace, results in more calories burned. 

This is why selecting the right songs to jump rope to can have a huge impact on the outcome of your routine.

Here's our selection of 5 playlists to guide you towards your objectives.

We’ve included below an outline of each playlist, songs included, BPM, and how many calories you can expect to burn for each playlist (based on duration and BPM).

However, without your body weight, that number is only an estimate.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What Is the Best Tempo for Jump Rope?

    The best tempo for jump rope depends on your goals and your style of jumping rope.

    For double unders or speed jumping, opt for fast-paced songs with BPMs above 125.

    Freestyle jumpers may prefer a slightly slower tempo, around 110-125 BPM, allowing them to transition between moves while maintaining a steady pace.
