Double Under Jump Rope

  • HOW: Start by holding a jump rope with each hand. While staying stiff and rigid throughout your entire body with a soft bend in your knees, begin jump roping by moving your hands forward while jumping over the rope as you go. With this variation jump high enough to allow for the rope to pass underneath you two times per jump. To perform this you will need to move the rope quickly.
  • FEEL: This should feel like a cardio workout - getting your heart rate up along with a lower-body workout, especially your calves and quads.
  • COMPENSATION: Focus on quality landing each time, do not excessively bounce or loss stiffness in your lower body. Do not let your knees buckle in or your upper body lean side to side. Your arms shouldn't be moving much as you move the jump rope, use momentum largely with your wrist.
