Hop Skip Jump :: Mixing it Up
So you know that I've been jumping rope for a while now. The thing I love about it is that there are an infinite number of ways to mix it up. And it's an easy way to add crosstraining to what you do ... because right now, I kickbox pretty much every day, which I love. But sometimes, when I feel like I'm hitting a wall with the boxing, my trusty rope comes out.
And consecutive double-unders. This by far is the most challenging for me. I've been able to do 3 consecutively, as long as I remind myself important jump rope training advice: to stand up straight ... like a pencil ... which feels sort of counter-intuitive because it feels like you want to hunch your body down to do them, but nope ... you gotta stand straight and jump high up while the wrists quickly turn the rope twice under while you're in the air.
