Double Unders: Jumping Rope on Sterling Athletic Sound Tiles

Improve Your Speed and Coordination with Double Unders

By Dale Collison

If you want to work on your accuracy, speed and coordination, try double unders. A double under is a rope jumping technique where the rope passes under your feet twice before you land. Jumping rope with a tradition single jump, you have short jump and a slow turn. With a double under, you wan to spring up a little higher and flip the write a little faster to speed up the rope.

Gym members at CrossFit Duluth have found they enjoy jumping rope on Greatmats' Sterling Athletic Sound Tiles. It's a lot more forgiving on the joints and your body overall than doing this over traditional horse mats or hard gym floors. The sound tiles absorb a lot of the impact of jumping.
