jump rope 35 min.
I was supposed to run this morning, but I felt like jumping rope. So I did that instead. I worked on double unders the whole time. Double unders are where you jump once for every two turns of the rope. Technique wise they are about 20 times harder than just plain rope jumping. If you can string a few together in a row they are also much more intense.
The most I could get in a row was 8, at the very end of the workout. One of the motivators to get it right is the whipping you get from the speed rope when you mess up. I have a wire speed rope, and when you catch your forearm or your back, believe me, you know it.
Here is a good tutorial on how to do them. I'm basically doing none of the things stressed in the video, so I've got lots to learn.
My buddy Oliver is 40 years old and he is an amateur boxer. He is fighting today for a championship belt. He is 3-0 in his boxing career so far (started 6 months ago). Very cool.
