Best Jump Rope Music Playlists
Nov 10, 2023Jordan Lindstrom
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.
This is why selecting the right songs to jump rope to can have a huge impact on the outcome of your routine.

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.
