Rope skipping is popular as it is easy to learn; thus, it has developed into a competitive sport. The research on the biomechanical properties of rope skipping can effectively improve training efficiency and reduce injury probability. This paper briefly introduced the characteristics of single-swing and multi-swing techniques in competitive rope skipping, selected ten second-grade athletes as the subjects to test the single-swing and triple-swing rope skipping, and tested the biomechanical properties in the process of rope skipping. The results showed that the variation range of the lower limb joint angle in the triple-swing rope skipping was larger than that in the single-swing rope skipping in the stage of thrusting against the ground and the hanging stage and smaller in the buffering stage. The maximum ground reaction force, the maximum vertical displacement, the vertical velocity at the moment of leaving the ground, and the vertical velocity at the moment of landing in triple-swing rope skipping were significantly higher than those in the process of single-swing rope skipping. In conclusion, to ensure the success of the triple-swing rope skipping, the lower limbs need to exert a larger acting force on the ground to obtain larger counter-acting force to extend the hanging time and ensure three circles.
