2 min read

Tune into learn how to use your Move United #AdaptAtHome towel with the Move United Warfighter Ambassador, Orlando Perez! He will teach you how to perform crossover jump roping with the Move United cordless jump rope!

To perform the exercise in a seated position, please follow the steps below:
1. Hold one jump rope handle in each hand with the rope and plastic ball towards your fingers
2. Sit up straight in chair
3. Lift chin and keep head forward
4. Keep shoulders relaxed and down
5. Cross one arm in front of your body down towards the opposite hip (you can do one hand at a time or both arms – you could make an "X" in front of your body with your arms)
6. Brace core
7. Rotate forearms and wrists in small circles moving backwards/clockwise to turn the jump rope handles
Optional: You can also focus on one hand at a time and only turn one jump rope.

To perform the exercise in a standing position, please follow the steps below:
1. Hold one jump rope handle in each hand with the rope and plastic ball towards your fingers
2. Stand upright with feet together
3. Lift chin and keep head forward
4. Keep shoulders relaxed and down
5. Cross one arm in front of your body down towards the opposite hip (you can do one hand at a time or both arms – you could make an "X" in front of your body with your arms)
6. Brace core
7. Rotate forearms and wrists in small circles moving backwards/clockwise to turn the jump rope handles
8. While the weight of the cordless jump rope is in the downward motion, jump with feet together one time; imagine a rope is going around your body and you must jump over it
