This cool-down period will help the body to return to its pre-exercise state. It’s a small investment of time for the many benefits you’ll receive after you do your jump rope training. A properly performed cool-down will:

Help clear the muscles of accumulated lactate

Lessen excessive fatigue

Reduce soreness and cramps

Keep muscles from tightening up

Lower blood pressure, and

Drop body temperature back to resting levels.
