- hands apart, alternate grips
- feet first (backward version) is usually easier for beginners
- for forward version twist shoulder over first, head leaning to one side
- swing legs to gain momentum, if knees have to bend a lot to keep from hitting ground set ropes higher
- Most common reason for getting no points: jumping to start instead of lifting feet and hanging first
Must move around the rope. No jumping.
- swinging legs before pulling body up
- putting feet or ankles on rope
High ropes require well developed upper body strength. In the simplest form the rope is held with alternate grips and the body must be brought all the way around both in both forward and backward orientations. From this basic idea there are dozens of more difficult maneuvers. To save time some of the more advanced competitors will do a forward and backward turn without stepping to the ground, but this is not required.
