If you're after heartwarming, wholesome content then please head directly to Jennifer Garner's Instagram feed without passing go. Whether it's videos of her baking bread or on-point cat memes – the actor is a beacon of brightness in this otherwise overwhelming world and don't you dare accuse us of being hyperbolic.
To be honest, that shameless plug for Garner's social media profile isn't super related to the topic at hand. We're actually here to talk about her skipping rope skills, because OF COURSE this woman is a pro at skipping rope.
The 42-year-old shared a video on her aforementioned Insta account and her double unders are making seven-year-old me sweat bullets.
WATCH her slay the skipping rope below...
While classic jumping rope and double unders are very similar in appearance, when done correctly, the tempo, timing, required coordination, and benefits are actually quite different,” David Newman, certified L-1 CrossFit trainer and founder of CEO of Rx Smart Gear, the go-to rope brand of many CrossFit Games athletes, previously told Women's Health.
However, in her caption Garner caveated that the fitness feat had really taken it out of her.
"And then, she napped 👵🏼🥊," she wrote, tagging her Body By Simone trainer @bethjnicely, who combines intense cardio, resistance training, and dance for a full body workout.

"Make sure you keep your head in a neutral position with your eyes forward or down at a 45 degree angle as you jump,” says Newman. This will keep your head in line with your spine and precent you from messing up your balance.
He also recommends keeping your elbows bent and your core engaged.
We're starting practice ASAP.
