One thing that really helped me to get more DU in sequence is to slowly accumulate DU in the middle of singles.
Like this:
3 SU – 1 DU – 3 SU – 1 DU …
2 SU – 1 DU – 2 SU – 1 DU …
1 SU – 1 DU – 1 SU – 1 DU …
And when you finally get 2 DU in a row start trying do to more and more in sequence!
Once you get it, it’s really fun! I prefer jumping rope than running!

Good info!Thanks!.. Perfect is only a concept, ideal is just a word . Hard work, sore and fun are real.

Devora Gray says:

Thing that helped me a lot was where I was focusing my gaze. Finding a spot on the ground about 10 ft in front of me and trying to jump in the same spot with feet together. Love your tutorials! I’d watch them with anything. How to eat a grapefruit, how to shop for Sparky’s biscuits, etc.

I HAD A RARE PROBLEM: 6 months into CrossFit – always been so frustrated with DU, like everyone else. Finally got out of the “1single-1double under” drill and can string them together. BUT my biggest issue I’ve never seen anyone talk about on YouTube. I did have good solid core position, jumped perfect from the ball of my foot and had tight elbows and a good wrist movement BUT wasn’t aggressive enough with the flick of my wrist when stinging them together. I realised this when I did an intense WOD and hade som epic music on and did DU to that. I guess I got so excited and pumped that the flick finally became aggressive enough. Woala I got them going!!

Also noticed that I used to hold my rope handle to far in, by moving my hand a bit out on the handle I got a better flick. Now I’m just building on my “perfect” foundation and stringing together more and more. Hope someone reads this and can relate and maybe become a better DU-jumper.

Awesome vid!

Robert Sapsed says:

Best break down I’ve seen! Cheers guys. Will get these!!!

Scott Leopold says:

the best drill is the “double hip tap”. without a rope, jump up and down like jump roping and each time your jump up tap your hip twice. practice this until you can do it 50+ times in a row without getting out of sync. it should be second nature. then pick up a jump rope and do the same thing, but in stead of tapping your hips, just spin the rope

Jessica Rorai says:

Is there a certain brand of rope that you like? Great videos…love em!

Jump rope stairs says:

good vid..

malcallm says:

After half of the year of practicing I still can’t do DU. I can jump SU all day long unbroken, but no double. I give up.

CrossFit sucks

Emory Emrich says:

Craig you helped me make a DU breakthrough with this video. I have struggled with them for 6 months and today after watching this I discovered my rope was too long. I did a long chipper with 10 rounds which included 24 DUs in each. I started doing it @ single single double cadence *with a shorter rope*. On the last 3 rounds I decided to go for it and did all 3 rounds unbroken. Most I’ve done unbroken ever. Thank you my friend! WE DON’T QUIT!

Fernando Yache says:

My 2018 goal after 3 years of Crossfit! Get the DU

Awesome video mate. Worked a night shift, had a couple of hours sleep, got up and just been trying to nail double unders in my garage for the best part of my day after watching this video. Brilliant feeling hitting my first few double unders in a row. Not quite there yet, but I’ll get there. Thanks for the how to vids! keep them coming.

Double Unders have started to come quicker once I got the Rx Smart Gear rope. The rope with a little more weight really helped.
