Jump Rope Clinic

By Holley | In Competition, Events and Announcements | on August 15, 2013

I’m currently in conversations with RPM Fitness about hosting a jump rope clinic here at Intrepid. I’m pushing to get the clinic in prior the in house competition, but we don’t have a lot of time left. They are almost done outlining the details of the clinic, so to finish discussions more quickly, I need to hear from all of you. Please post to comments these two things:

1. If you’re interested in attending the jump rope clinic

2. What you hope to learn at the jump rope clinic. Do you just want to learn dubs? Are dubs proficient? Maybe you want to learn some more advanced skills like triples, quads, other tricks, or double dutch).

The coaches on the RPM fitness team are incredible jumpers, they put my skills to shame. They sold me on the jump rope at CrossFit Regionals and gave me pointers to improve my triples at the Games. After just 5 minutes of coaching, I hit a new triple under PR. If you’d like to see a sampling of their jump roping abilities, check out the 1 minute of double unders from my original post about the RPM rope. However, if 161 double unders wasn’t enough in 1 min, he beats his record here with 164 dubs in 1 min! He also does some pretty cool tricks in this video also found on the RPM website.

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m very excited to learn from the best in the world! As they say at RPM, don’t double under angry!

 


Also, the 2013 Intrepid Games are a little more than a month away and now is the time to sign up (just 9 days left)! There is a lot of planning that goes into the event, so the sooner we have and idea for number of competitors, the better! If you’re debating about what division to sign up for, we encourage you to sign up for the more challenging division. It will give you the drive to push yourself for the next month to get a handle on those last couple of pesky goats that have been following you around. We’re also in need of more volunteers, thus far we only have two. Remember, you can compete and volunteer. The volunteers won’t be busy for the entire event, we try to plan plenty of breaks for people. If you want to be busy for the whole event however, we can find something for you to do! Thanks in advance!

    I’m in for the RPM jump rope clinic.

    I’d like to get more proficient with dubs. I have them, but just can’t string enough of them together and I feel like I am “trying” too hard while doing them.

    I’m in for the jump rope clinic…

    I would primarily be focused on getting and proficientising dubs, but would definitely be open to watching (not necessarily attempting) the more advanced stuff.

    I’d definitely be interested. Dubs were terrible yesterday. Would like to improve.

    Would like to learn double-unders so I never have to do paralette jumps again…

    Im in as well…

    Im on the same boat as Mike K…feels like Im definitely “trying” while doing them and once Im tired they start going away.

    I’m in…just started stringing a few together but it’s ugly and I can’t seem to get them going under pressure, like yesterday’s WOD. Took me probably over a minute to get my first 20.

    Im in and might even bring Samantha Benjamin and Patrick too!! I would really love to improve my dubs without a single in between and improve them! And always up for learning anything new! It should not take so much work to do dubs. I need help!
    Triples I wish!

    In!! Everyone else has already said it; I’ve definitely got some work to do to get my dubs efficient. Triple unders could be pretty cool too….

  • Nathania says:

    Yeap I could really use any help I can get to string those dubs!

  • Paul says:

    In – dubs would be cool, other skills would be cool too. I’m up for all of it.

    I’m interested in the clinic. I would love to string together a solid group of dubs consistently.
