Double-under Sunday

Double-unders help improve balance, agility and especially coordination.  These skills carry over to every other movement in CrossFit so the importance of mastering them cannot be overstated.  They also happen to be one of the most frustrating exercises to master.  The great thing about double-unders though is that they can be practiced anywhere anytime as long as you have your rope handy.

Start with trying to get one and then two and so on.  If you use the double-single-double technique it’s time to take the next step.  Make yourself attempt two in a row even if you fail repeatedly.  The timing and coordination needed to do consecutive reps cannot be learned by adding singles between your doubles.

Try this workout on your own.  Start by doing 1 double-under, then rest and try for 2 consecutive.  If you get 2 then you’ll rest and go to 3 and so on until you reach 10.  If you mess up a set you start over with 1.  Continue this until you can get 10 consecutive regularly.
