- Grasp jump rope handles on each side. Initiate side
swing mount or start with rope behind body and swing rope
from behind over head.
- Swing rope in front of body, down to floor. Hop up as rope
travels under foot and land over to left side, left foot lands
then right foot touches. Swing rope around body and hop over
rope again landing to right side, right foot lands then left
foot touches. Continue jumps hopping side to side.
- This movement is different from Skier Step since both feet
do not make contact with ground simultanously. Hop heights should
be minimal, just enough to clear rope, maximize jump rope efficiency,
and decrease joint impact. Intensity can be altered by increasing
speed of hops.
