Jump Rope: Alernating Leg Hop

Instructions

Preparation

Grasp jump rope handles on each side. Initiate side swing mount or start with rope behind body and swing rope from behind over head.

Execution

Swing rope in front of body, down to floor. Hop on one leg as rope travels under foot and repeat with same foot. Alternate successive hops between opposite foot. Repeat.

Comments

Hop heights should be minimal, just enough to clear the rope, maximize jump rope efficiency, and decrease joint impact. Intensity can be altered by increasing speed of hops.
