- Grasp jump rope handles on each side. Initiate side
swing mount or start with rope behind body and swing rope
from behind over head. Body weight should be balanced on the
balls of the feet, with knees slightly bent.
- Swing rope in front of body, down to floor. Hop as rope travels
under feet, and repeat.
- Hop heights should be minimal, just enough to clear the rope,
maximize jump rope efficiency, and decrease joint impact. Intensity
can be altered by increasing speed of hops. Also see side
