Here’s how to do criss-cross hands with a jump rope:
- Stand with your feet slightly apart while holding a jump rope behind you
- Before each jump, bring your left hand to your right side and your right hand to your left side so that your arms are crossed
- After you’ve made the first jump, resume your normal hands positioning to prepare for the next jump.
Practice these first, then go ahead and do today’s workout.
