“It’s not how much you do, it’s what you do during your training.” —Luke Boon
Luke Boon is one of the most decorated jump rope athletes in the history of the sport. He’s a world record holder, a 28 time world champion, and coaches youth, adults and other elite competitive jumpers through his company Jump Force International. Luke has a wealth of knowledge and I know there are going to be several unlocks for you during this episode.
We talk about so many great subjects, including how to train freestyle at world class level, how to count your own triple under reps correctly, how and why Luke takes notes for all things jump rope, the importance of mental benchmarks on your speed scores, and a whole lot more. This entire episode is jam packed with awesomeness, but my favorite part is when we discuss speed training towards the second half of the episode. Luke trained new youth jumpers to reach a 30 second speed score of 87 in only 9 weeks. That blew my mind, and you absolutely do not want to miss how he achieved that incredible accomplishment.
