Coach Tips: Double Under Efficiency
By Ben Smith
Coach Mike is back in this latest video in which he illustrates a way to make double unders more efficient. Oftentimes, when people pike while doing double unders it is because the ball of their foot is slightly out in front of their body.
That fault can easily be fixed by keeping the ball of the foot directly underneath the hip while jumping. Removing the pike from your double unders will allow you to use less energy while performing them. In turn, this will allow you to get through a workout faster, or complete more reps while doing an amrap.
