Jump Around

The blasted double under is my topic today! You either love them or you hate them. But you will do them! In my opinion the double under has got to be one of the first skills to learn and to master. Firstly, what is a double under? When skipping a rope a D/U (double under)  is when the rope passes under twice for one turn of the rope. Why is it so important to learn? It, in my opinion, is an easier element in CrossFit. I use easier very loosely here! But, my point is most everyone can jump and turn their wrists. In my class all beginners start out with the same progressions.

- Get really comfortable with single skips. Do singles quickly and consistently!

- Prep for the D/U by doing 2 small jumps then a higher jump, get comfortable with that.

- Start to practice whipping the rope for then second pass.

There are a few things you need to consider when doing a D/U

1. The rope: it can be a cheaper plastic run of the mill rope or it can be a more expensive one like the one pictured above. In this case you get what you pay for. I personally have the Rx and love it.

2. Your jump needs to be relaxed, in one place and feet shouldn't pike or donkey kick.

3. Heels should make contact with the floor, don't stay on your toes or your calves will hate you!

4. Midline stability!!! Keep your core engaged

5. Elbows tight to your sides, don't let them drift out. This will shorten your rope and you will trip.

6. Wrist!! This is where the magic happens!! Don't turn the rope from your shoulder, its a strong turning of the wrist that makes the double under happen!

7. Practice Practice Practice!!! Every day and I promise there will come a day where you won't have whip marks on your legs and forearms from all the missed attempts.
