I am TOTALLY STOKED to announce that we will be hosting Rx Jump Ropes on August 4th for one of their awesome jump rope clinics.
Dave Newman, the owner, has been a buddy of mine for a few years now and, besides being an awesome guy, offers THE BEST jump rope on the market.
The 4-hour clinic will break down the mechanics of jumping rope and work the skills and drills (working the timing, coordination, dexterity) necessary to get REALLY good at double-unders. It also comes with a jump rope custom fitted for you!
There are two registration options: $95 the entire four-hour workshop with a custom rope, or $65 for just the workshop (if you have your own rope).
Personally, I’d like to see as many people at that workshop as possible. Double-unders are a skill that have great transference to other athletic movements. Also, if you ever plan on being a competitive CrossFitter, the double-under movement needs to be one of those “second nature” things where you don’t even have to think about it to do 100 in a row.
