Wednesday, December 17
I came across this video today doing some research on double under tips and technique and was blown away. This is Molly Metz, 5-time jump rope world champion, doing 10 minutes of consecutive double unders. That's 10 minutes straight without a break and not a single trip. Pretty impressive. So, what can we learn from this? The main thing is to look at her technique. Look at how little movement she has in her arms. She is whipping the rope with just her wrists, which minimizes extra movement saving energy and keeping the rope in the proper place so there is less chance of tripping. She looks extremely relaxed and comfortable, which is another thing that we can all benefit from. If double unders make your arms really tired, try minimizing the movement of the arms and try to relax a little. Check out the video below and see for yourself.
