The Double Under takes time to master. It’s a movement that takes practice and time. Progressions for the double under are minimal, but the technique is precise. If you veer off the road from any of the important techniques then the double under can give you a lot of frusteration.
Here are some key points to focus in on when it comes to the double under:
First, stay calm and relaxed. Focus on an efficient two-foot jump while staying on the balls of the feet and rotating the rope with a wrist-initiated turn. Keep your hands slightly in front of you and relax your shoulders.
- Single-single-double-under (or attempt)
- Consecutive double-unders
The double under will challenge your accuracy and lung capacity, but once mastered will keep you coming back for more!
