The Most Awesome Guide to Double Unders

Let’s start with a definition… what are double unders?

double under is a popular exercise done on a jump rope in which the rope makes two passes per jump instead of just one.

It is significantly more effective than a single rope pass in that it allows for higher work capacity. It takes a bit of coordination and determination to master double unders. Those with less coordination will find it a little more difficult.

The double under must be executed with more intensity in order to complete a high number of repetitions without mistake. The main key to double under success is learning how to control the rope. Rope control will help you coordinate your jumps to the whipping of your wrist.

Many athletes prefer to use speed rope specially designed for CrossFit training that is made of a thin wire cable making it easier to perform double unders.

Check out the videos below for an awesome guide on how to properly perform double unders:

As I was browsing for double under tutorials, I came across this awesome 10 week jump rope transformation video… check it out – it’s great motivation!
