Step 1

Start with your elbows close to your body, your hands at a 45-degree angle, and your feet directly under your hips, this is your starting position. Staying on the balls of your feet, jump off the ground and quickly rotate your wrists so that the skipping rope passes under your feet twice with every jump. Ensure you maintain an upright torso and you bend at the hips, knees and ankles when jumping. Avoid pulling your heels towards your buttocks as you jump and stay relaxed in your shoulders. You should feel tension in the shoulders and calves throughout the movement.
