Here are 5 things we want you to think about the next time double unders come up in a workout.
1. Keep your ribs over your pelvis.
2. Land SOFTLY
When we are stomping as we jump, it is more effort for the pelvic floor. Try a couple of repetitions without any music on or the music low. How much can you hear your feet? If you’re stomping, try to land a bit softer and see how you feel.
3. Keep your hands out in front of you
When you are jumping, you should be able to see your hands. What often happens is as we get tired, we start to drift our hands behind us and away from us. This makes us more likely to make a mistake. But it also makes us more likely to pee.
4. Be intentional about your breath
5. Don't kegel the entire time.
Did you try all these things and you’re still peeing? Don’t worry. This shows we might need to take a step back and build up to bigger sets on the jump rope.
