Double skipping in skip/jump rope means to jump once and twirl the rope around twice.
Normal skipping goes like this: jump - rope passes - jump - rope passes...
In double skipping: jump - rope passes - rope passes - jump - rope passes - rope passes...
What double skipping does is build up explosive power specifically in your calves, other leg muscles secondary. It's for that initial lunge of burst speed. Double skipping fast, it can be anaerobic and doing it for an extended period of time can lead to aerobic benefits.

This is how you do it.
Normal Skip ---> One jump and rope go round/loop you once, jump and rope go round/loop you once.
Double Skip---> One jump and rope go round/loop you twice, jump and rope go round/loop you twice.
Skipping also improve your wrist strength if you do it correctly with rotation of wrist, you will feel you wrist getting tired which is very good for those who wish to strengthen their wrist power.
How to achieve this :
You need to have
(1) good timing of jumping
(2) good timing and rotation of wrist
(3) A good jumping height so that the rope can loop you twice.
Advice for beginner, do normal skip for the first skip or the first few skips, to get the momentum before trying the double.
Get a decent skipping rope. Avoid those with metal coil on the center of the rope! Metal coil on rope does help to generate speed of the loop but if it hit you, it can be as bad as a CANE sentenced for crime. Believe me, you do not want to try that.
By the way, Zhao Jianhua can do TRIPLE Skip!!! Grrrr.........

My record is 13 tripples... my coach was telling me that one of the players he trained with could do quadrouples and could do doubles without a single mistake for an hour in flipflops on a track outside in the blistering Indonesian heat! Sun Jun could do quadrouples I've heard as well. I bet Lin Dan, LCW, Xia, WCH, Shoji Sato can all do quadrouples as well. I bet Zhao could as well... with the legs on that guy

Will advice most people to stick with double skip which is good enough in quality if you can do the quantity without mistake. Also, it is just not the kind of skipping exercise for most people here. Of course, if you are able to make at least 50 and above consistently, it will be good to do it and keep repeating it for 15-30mins.
Honestly, I think that double skips is good enough. One example is why that Indonesia guy who done it for an hour rather than doing triple.

Doing doubles continuously for 30 minutes is extremely impressive. Doing triples for 30 continuous minutes?! That's unheard of this side of super jump ropers.
