How to Master Double Unders

One of the hardest movements to master is the double under.  Double unders require coordination and practice.  We gathered the best information to give you a comprehensive guide to becoming a double under pro.

So what's a double under?

A double under is when an athlete jumps higher than normal to get the jump rope under his or her feet twice.   

Equipment

Another key to mastering the double under is to have a quality speed rope.  Having the right tool for this movement is key. 

Most speed ropes feature an adjustable rope, ball bearings and lightweight handles.  Each is designed to provide optimal revolutions.

Sizing

Sizing your speed rope is a piece of cake.  

  • Stand upfront and place the speed rope under one foot
  • Pull the jump rope handles up to your arm pit
  • The speed rope handles should be positioned level with your arm pit
  • Cut or adjust your rope for he proper fitment
