Double unders are a skill with which many of us struggle. Double unders require coordination and perhaps that's why they are so frustrating. You might acquire higher skill movements before you gain double under proficiency. Would you like to know the secret to getting double unders? PRACTICE!
You need to practice every time you're at the gym. You need to buy a rope and practice at home. You need lots of lots of practice.
This video has some good tips for someone aiming for their first DU or those of us trying to string together more than 2 or 3. Watch this video if you have a double under and are trying to string them together. Watch this video if you are working on your triple under. Triple unders have appeared on the CrossFit mainsite workouts. Don't be surprised if one day they make their debut at True Spirit.
As Many Rounds and Reps as Possible in 12 Min of:
10 Ball Slams - pick load
20 Russian Seated Twists - use the slam ball
30 Double Unders
Today's triplet is intended to be fast and furious. You get to pick your slam ball weight then you'll use your slam ball for the RST - a twist on a twist:-) We are working stamina, endurance, core strength, flexibility, speed, and coordination. Good luck!
