Alternate Single Leg Jump Rope

Alternate Single Leg Jump Rope

  • HOW: Start by holding a jump rope with each hand, while balancing on one leg. Begin jumping rope while switching which leg you bounce off of, the opposite leg will move in front of you to allow the rope to clear. Stay stiff and rigid throughout your entire body with a soft bend in your knees.
 
  • FEEL: This should feel like a cardio workout - getting your heart rate up along with a lower-body workout, especially your calves and quads.
 
  • COMPENSATION: Focus on quality landing each time, do not excessively bounce or loss stiffness in your lower body. Do not let your knees buckle in or your upper body lean side to side.
