Coaching Tips: Make sure you spend some time practicing Double Unders before starting the workout so that you can be smooth right away! Focus on keeping the hands at the sides and shoulders back and using your ankles and wrists. Do not bend the knees excessively and slam your feet down each rep. Get through the Double Unders as fast as possible and use the runs as a way to 'pace' the intensity.
