Jump Rope Programming and Athletic Training with Celina Furman (#13)

Ever since I started doing weight training, it is so much easier for me to do quads [and] power-based movements. Cross-training is really important for competitive jumpers.” 

— Celina Furman

Celina Furman (IG: @celina.rea) is a lifelong competitive and performance jump roper, with an extensive history in the sport. She also was a founding member of the A2 jump rope club at the University of Michigan. On top of that, Celina is also completing a PhD in Social Psychology.

Celina and I both have an incredibly specific and detailed approach jump rope training. We’ve both spent a large amount of time digging into the weeds of athletic programming, and come to the table with a similar mindsets. We get into many topics, including alignment corrections for young jumpers, pin trading at jump rope competitions, applying weight training programs to jump rope, favorites places to jump, and a lot more.
