Today we are working on double unders. Double unders demand coordination and endurance. The key to consistent double unders is combining a slow, high power jump with a fast wrist turn.
When first learning, many people donkey kick their jump. Instead of raising your knees, think of jumping your head higher. This will help get your body aligned and set you up to rebound into another power jump.
Another common error is jumping backward. This happens as your hands drift behind you with each turn. Keep your hands low and in front so that you can see them in your peripheral vision.
