5-Day Summer Jump Rope Challenge: Day 3

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.
