*Here is a efficient way to perform a Double Under and an inefficient way to perform a Double Under. In the first slide, you can see the athlete has her knees bent, as she performs the double under, which takes more energy and is less efficient. In the second slide, the athlete keeps her legs perfectly straight, which allows for smoother double unders, and also a more efficient way to perform a double under. Your goal throughout your metabolic conditioning workouts is to perform movements in a more productive way, which will lead to overall better fitness! The more work you do in an allotted time, the more fit you will become!
