Double Unders!

I can say that I am finally getting my double unders under control which is making WODs that include them WAY more enjoyable.

CFCP was closed because of bad weather, but they made a WOD that everyone could do at home:

  • 50 – 40 – 30 – 20 – 10 Double Unders with 10 burpess between each set

My time on this one  was 8:15. NOT BAD! I was really happy with how my double unders went! I think that my smallest string was 8 or something like that.

WODDING in a hotel is always fun. Ryon and I scoped out the weight room and there was ample space for the following (I suggested to Dave, then he added the tweak on the double unders):


  • 10 push ups
  • 10 sit ups
  • 10 air squats
  • 10 double unders (must be unbroken to count – this was Dave’s addition)

I didn’t time this one as Ryon and I were sharing the rope, but it felt like right around 9-11 minutes. Nice little lung burner. I really thought that I would have a lot of problems with the unbroken DU’s, but I will be damned if I only messed up on 2 sets! WOW!

Ryon asked if I wanted to try some weight under load stuff. It sounded interesting so, of course, I wanted to! We did the following four exercises:

  • Back Squat
  • Lat Pull Down
  • Shoulder Press
  • Bench Press

For each of these, we used a 10 second up, 10 second down scheme until failure. 2 sets each. I think for the most part, I was able to go for 1 – 2 minutes on each exercise. It was a lot of fun, and really interesting to try something different. I would like to incorporate this in 1x/week, but I’ll talk to Dave about that.
