Grand National Champion Justin Meier – Three Minute Speed

Today’s jump rope video is of Justin Meier the 2006 Grand National Champion in Male Three Minute Speed. Justin won with a score of 900. That’s only 8 jumps shy of the national record set by Veyom Bahl in 2004. Justin averaged 5 jumps a second over three minutes which is very amazing.

If you are working on speed, pay very close attention to the form that Justin uses while he jumps. He leans slightly forward, his arms are at his waist. He makes small tight circles with his wrists and his feet barely come off the ground.

Nice work Justin!
