Double Your Pleasure

eric_doubles

Jumping rope is a great way to improve speed, agility, and coordination as well as a great exercise for working on improving your running stride.  Double-unders take quickness to the next level, taxing the entire body.  Even some very accomplished CrossFitters struggle with double-unders.  Practicing the skill makes for a great warm up, and that’s exactly what we’re going to do, because we won’t get better unless we work on it.

  1. 19:49, as RXd… including a few minutes to bandage my torn up hand. Tore off a callus in the last round of pullups today. First bloody palm in all my days as a CrossFitter. Time for another sentimental blog entry, I guess. 😀

  2. Hello Fenway friends! I left Boston a year and a half ago (reluctantly) for a job transfer. I heard of you guys yesterday on the main site and am very excited for your BOX! My heart strings are plucking! If I ever return to my home away from home, i will be doing WODs with you all. For now though, I must brave this 70 degree weather with my Socal affiliate(Redlands, CA).

    Enjoy those double unders! I did my first ever 10 straight today, must say i am pretty proud of that!

    Sincerely,

    Sean

    1. Thanks, Sean! We’re excited too… and you’re welcome to drop in here next time you’re in town. Try an Invasion on a Saturday!
