Double Unders - Part 5

Progression 5: Correct Common Faults

 

Once you are completing consecutive double-unders successfully, begin correct any common faults that may occur. It’s very possible for you to be making successful connection of double-unders but be kicking your feet forward or tuck jumping or any of the above common faults that can cause the movement to be more challenging and taxing than it need be.

 

Homework: For those who can do the consecutive double-unders but larger reps escape you, set a goal for after the workout (or before, but I find after is a good time to practice) maybe the first few days it’s going for 30, then the next time it’s 40 and so on. Before each jumping session you should perform 10-20 reps of each of the drills as a warm-up.
