One of the best ways to get light on your feet is skipping rope. This exercise is a staple in Muay Thai Kickboxing. Jump rope helps you build nearly every single muscle in your legs. Since this sport is heavily dependent on the use of your legs jump rope is an invaluable tool.
You will inevitably learn how to stay on your toes, which is absolutely necessary in the ring. One key to success is having the ability to move around…a lot. Being on your toes constantly will help you build that calf muscle so that your not as tired when you have to get moving and stay bouncy on your feet. If you’re too flat footed or get tired because your feet and legs are tired you will be in for a long night.
