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!
