Single Leg Jump Rope

How To Do Single Leg Jump Rope Exercise Video Demonstration and Guide

The Single Leg Jump Rope exercise is a great unilateral cardio exercise that also targets your calves.

To get started:

  1. Hold the ends of the jump rope in each hand.
  2. With your feet hip-width apart, slightly bend your knees, and raise your right foot in front of you, a few inches off the ground.
  3. Push the ball of your left foot through the ground to jump up, point your toes to the ground, and with your hands by your waist, quickly rotate your wrists to make small circles to revolve the rope around your body.
  4. Land softly on your toes, and quickly push off again from the ball of your left foot.
  5. The idea is to jump over the rope as quickly as possible with a slight hop.
  6. Don’t think of jumping as high as you can, think about bouncing on the ball of your foot.
  7. Repeat all the reps on one leg, then switch legs and repeat.
