Jump Rope Injury Prevention With Physical Therapist Francis Feraren (#69)

“Don’t hasten things just because you want to unlock [a new skill] today. You have to learn the biomechanics needed, and then eventually everything will follow.” – Francis Feraren

Francis Feraren is a registered Physical Therapist and an avid recreational jumper. We originally connected on a live I was doing where Francis was sharing some thoughts on injuries, and I knew I wanted to bring that great information to the podcast. So that’s exactly what we did! We discuss loads of different subjects, starting with healing from ankle sprains, flat footedness, shins splints, and jumpers knee (yes, we cover some major territory on injuries), we chat about how Francis structures his training sessions, what drives Francis to keep improving, learning patience from jump rope, and a bunch more!

You can listen to the podcast on Apple PodcastsSpotify, Google, Stitcher and Overcast.
