2009 Grand National Jump Rope Championship

by Kilo on July 11, 2010

Eddie Yacynych with some jump rope tricks that make the double-unders I see at Crossfit look pretty sad. (No, I can’t jump-rope).

If you’ve ever tried to jump rope very quickly or for very long, you know that it can be both an incredible cardio workout and/or a crushing blow to your perception of how coordinated you are.

I am coordinated enough to jump over the rope if I lay it on the ground and leap over it with a running start, but no more.

Nice work Eddie.

That is freekin amazing!!

I have a jump rope, I don’t use it very often but jumping rope for 5 minutes (albeit whacking your feet numerous times and stopping) is a killer!

I think the first time I jumped rope as an adult my calves were sore for about a week, mad!

That’s mental! I must jump more rope and not upset the neighbours, again!

I liked the double under while doing a backflip.

Also be sure to check out Buddy Lee. He was capable at one time of doing quintuple (5x) unders!
