Double Unders and The 2015 CrossFit Games Are You Ready!

Okay folks the time has come once again.  The start of the CrossFit Games is just around the corner, known as the CrossFit Open.  Many of you had New Year’s Resolutions to end 2014 ready and poised to destroy the 2015 CrossFit Open competition.

In other words, you have plans to dominate the entire field.  Now in your minds eye you can see yourself pushing through the workouts with little rest and perfect form, but on the other hand we all know the actual experience is much more intense.  The mind and the body must be in-sync where you can maintain a good pace to the very end of the WOD.

Now preparing for the unknown is virtually impossible, yet we try our best to throw together enough randomness to fool our mind and body to be as well rounded as possible.  The Sport of CrossFit is a true test of known and unknown capabilities.  Only God knows how your body is truly going to respond, but it is up to you to get close enough to God like intuition once 3-2-1 Go! gets yelled out and the clock starts.

It is said, Age is nothing but a number, but the current conditioning of your body must also be considered. Mentally gaming how intense your training should be and how much rest and recovery you will need is a must. To be as Fresh and relatively injury free for the open kick-off is crucial.

To get yourself to the next level get a coach.  As an individual you do not see everything you do or not do.  The training triangle of Nutrition/Supplementation,Training, Rest and Recovery is best coordinated by a third party.  This coach through analysis will push you through your weaknesses and maintain or best your strengths.

Now lets talk Double Unders, the question is do you have a benchmark for where you want to be and when?  Double Unders are a simple yet seemingly complex exercise which involves very little movement.  You must not overcomplicate things but you also must not over simplify things as well.

You must be willing to change the way you are jumping or swinging the rope with patience long enough to get to the magic number of 50 Double Unders in a row or more unbroken. Don’t let frustration or embarrassment keep you from trying (failing) and trying again (succeeding). Singles are a beginners game. Double Unders are done and done well be Tier 1 / Elite Athletes

Which One Are You? Beginner or Elite – It’s Your Choice!

Double Under Training 2014 New Years Resolution!

50 Double Unders and nothing but 50 Double Unders!

My personal PR for 2014 is 200 Double Unders in a row unbroken! My current PR is 120 unbroken. My only real issue is fatigue so working on efficiency is an ongoing key task.

Anyone going through my program should comment to a daily or per workout regiment of double under practice. Settling for singles will only get you good at doing singles.

If you have been crossfitting for more than 2 years and you are still doing singles, please step up to the plate and comment to the double under movement. 50 unbroken doubles is an easy task if you continue to work on your mechanics and increase your level of efficiency.

My additional commitment in 2014 is to provide you more tips and techniques to get you to 50 and beyond reducing your learning curve by 50% or greater.

Tip #1 for 2014 to get you started is: Focus on Rope Momentum.

You want your rope to continue to move non-stop as you do singles while you add in your doubles; doing so will allow you to get a better feel for your rope and how it moves.

Learning to feel your way through your micro adjustments will soon make it second nature. Your fine motor skills will improve with consistent effort.

Leave me a comment if you have specific questions or if you just want to let me know what is on your mind.
