Double ups jump rope
 
I am new to Crossfit . I can jump rope. I have two problems: 1) I am used to going for time instead of counting. 2) I hate counting :ranting2: I just want to go for it and go hard. 3) Then there is this math formula ? divide by two ????. 4) I watched just about all the Buddy Lee videos guy is a jump rope NINJA!! but I still don't get how to count? I am no Buddy Lee but I can hold my own with a jump rope just can't count!

[en doing "double unders", be sure to jump high enough for the rope to pass twice under your feet. Simply count every time you jump or land.

Example: *JUMP* - *pass, pass* - *LAND* - 1 - *JUMP* - *pass, pass* - *LAND* - 2 - *JUMP*

If walking and chewing gum is not your forte...then just ask someone to count for you.

Yeah, you are overthinking it. A rep is every time your feet hit the ground. If you just don't want to count, that's a personal problem and you really can't get help for that here.

love your level of maturity... No one is going to hold your hand through the world of Crossfit. You should probably grow some thicker skin and learn to take a little criticism. Your bound to hear it form more than just me on here...

Seriously, all that you have to do is count how many times your feet hit the floor.

If you're really saying that you don't know how to count, then I can only recommend that you learn.
