Double Unders
Knees Back

Triple extension is important in the olympic lifts, but also with double unders. We often see athletes either bring the knees up or the heels back. This is hip flexion and knee flexion. If athletes can think about pressing the knees back, they will get adequate extension while keeping the lower body in a good position.
Arms CloseWhat the arms do determines how long the rope is. If the upper arm stays close to the rib cage, the rope is at the optimal length that athletes measured it out at. However, if the arms drift away from the body, the rope shortens and is more likely to cause a trip. Keep the arms close to minimize the probability of tripping.
