35 Double Unders
rest 2 min
1 trip each:
Ball of foot walks
I took a video of Kaitlyn stringing in together a nice string of double unders. She is straight up down, not folding at the hips with every jump (don’t be Flipper, the talking dolphin), keeps her legs loose but springy, not wasting energy by kicking up her heels with every jump. She stays in one place, not turning, not spinning, not bouncing widely everywhere. One last thing for her to work on is consistent hand placement. You can see that on each jump, her hands move to a slightly different place in relation to her body. Overall, pretty smooth.
Next, we have Leah 🙂 She blazed on the run and did well on the doubles, however, could be much faster if she would get out of her comfort zone a bit. She is comfortable with double-single-double-single over and over. If you can do this sequence, you’ll be stuck here forever unless you challenge yourself to go for consecutive doubles. Yes, you might fail (many times at first) but I guarantee you’ll start stringing two, three, or more together eventually. One strategy is do 2 doubles, 1 single…get good at that, go to 3 doubles, 1 single, and etc.
The other thing I want to point out is her arms. It’s a short clip but you just might see how her arms shoot out away from her body as she does a double. This is a habit we need to break. Hold your arm out to the side for max time, now hold the same arm by your side. Which one felt easier? Same concept on doing a long sequence of doubles…the more your arms are away from you, the more unnecessary work you are doing just holding them up.
