More than two years of CrossFit and I've never really got the hang of double unders. Part of this was starting CrossFit with a pair of really sore feet and another other was having my limited 'hops' degraded by age. I also didn't spend a ton of time practicing. I did practice a number of hours but I never seem to quite get it.
At Crossfit Brickyard, we have one day a month that is 'bring a friend' day. Due to this, the workout is typicaly made up of movements that a novice can manage.
Today's workout was a 12-minute AMRAP that included 20 double unders, 15 sit-ups and 10 lunges with each leg will holding a 20-pound med ball. After speaking with the coach, I decided to try the workout with double versus scaling to singles.
Now the bad news is that I was only able to do 5 rounds. The great news was that I did double instead of scaling to single unders. That means I did 100 double unders. They weren't pretty but it was a baby step toward scratching this goat off my list.
I'll take it (especially since triple unders are, evidently, a new thing).
