Jump Rope: Boxer Step

Instructions

Preparation

Grasp jump rope handles on each side. Initiate side swing mount or start with rope behind body and swing rope from behind over head.

Execution

Swing rope in front of body, down to floor. Hop up as rope travels under foot and land over to left side, left foot lands then right foot touches. Swing rope around body and hop over rope again landing to right side, right foot lands then left foot touches. Continue jumps hopping side to side.

Comments

This movement is different from Skier Step since both feet do not make contact with ground simultanously. Hop heights should be minimal, just enough to clear rope, maximize jump rope efficiency, and decrease joint impact. Intensity can be altered by increasing speed of hops.
