Lateral moves help work muscles you don't normally use. Here's how to do the skier jump:
- Stand erect with your feet approximately shoulder-width apart, knees slightly bent and arms extended along your sides. Throughout the movement, your weight should be distributed evenly on the balls of both feet. Grip the jump rope handles using a classic grip. Lower the jump rope on the ground behind your feet.
- Rotate your wrists forward to swing the rope overhead. Your arms should remain in a semistatic downward position along the sides of your body and your hands should rotate in small arcs.
