Why do dolphins jump up out of the water?
Dolphins jump for MANY reasons, spinner dolphins for instince are very energetic and spin when they jump, they jump for fun, other dolphins may use this as a signal to other dolphins that they need help with catching sardines etc. Some dolphins jump because it is easy for them to look ahead when they are higher than the sea, they may use it for navigational purposes, sometimes just jump to express hapiness and their excitement, or they may jump because they are full of energy and want to play. Dolphins sometimes use it to communicate things to other dolphins, other times for hunting and some may jump for the sake of jumping. =) To breath or for people to see them.

How do you speed jump in jump rope?
Speed jump is when you jump from one foot to another while jumping the rope. You start on one foot and when you switch to the other you bring the rope under yourself and jump it. Some people mistake something I call gallop jump which is when you only jump the rope every other time you switch feet so only one of your two feet ever jumps the rope. As you get better you can go faster and faster. At competitions judges count only the right foot because some people go very fast and it would be almost impossible to count every foot. This score is then doubled by two to get the total number of jumps you took.
