Double Under Tips ‘n Tricks

If you’re struggling with getting double unders spend at least 8-10 minutes on double under practice, and stick to these tips:

Start with 30 jump taps i.e. jump and tap the sides of your hips twice. This is to simulate the timing of the rope passing underneath your feet.

– start with feet together

– keep your core tight

– stand tall

– jump using your ankles with a slight bend in the knees i.e. be a spring *bounce out of the bottom of the jump*

– make small fast circles with your wrists

– put your hands in your peripheral vision remember to always be able to see your hands to avoid catching the rope on the back of your feet

– jump high

*remember to don’t stop jumping high and don’t stop spinning the rope*
