Nothing gets your heart going like jumping rope, and in today's workout we have plenty of it. However, some of us ride the struggle bus every time we pick up a rope. Some workouts leave us looking like we've been whipped by an angry coach:-) It's totally OK if you aren't, yet, proficient at jumping rope. It took Coach Leslie nearly 3 years to learn how to double under! It took Coach James 2 years. Coaches Heidi and Dover had a long journey as well. Coach Amanda is such a badass that she was born doing double unders. Coach Zach took an amazing jump rope specialty course over the summer and can not only do terrific double unders, but he can teach you how to improve your jumping skills. Why not book a 30 min skill session with him and take your jumping rope skills to the next level?
In the meantime, enjoy today's Technique Tuesday video. It includes really great advice on body position. Good luck!
