Today we’re going to be focusing on criss-cross feet jumps. Here’s everything you need to know about them:
Criss-Cross Feet Jumps
Here’s how to do criss-cross feet jumps:
- Hold a jump rope behind you with both hands
- Before each jump, cross your legs and then resume your normal position for your next jump
- Build up speed and try to jump your legs further as you get more comfortable.
If you’re struggling with criss-cross feet jumps at first, try practicing the jumps without a jump rope to build the necessary coordination. It helps a lot!
