Movement Tip: The Single-Under

The Single-Under is really just a single skip. If it has been some time since you picked up a skipping rope, then working on getting a good relaxed rythm going with single skips will give you a good base when it comes to tackling the much trickier double under, which we will look at next week. As CrossFit Seminar Staff member Julie Foucher demonstrates in this video, you can expect the best results with a nice relaxed jump, rotating at the wrists rather than the shoulders or elbows and keeping the core nice and tight. Get this and you will be all set to try out the Double Under next week!

Points Of Performance

  • Hold hands slightly in front of hips
  • Jump a few inches off the ground, keeping torso upright with body straight
  • Spin wrists so the rope passes the feet once with every jump
