Ready to master those double unders?
With the 2017 CrossFit Open coming to an end, it should come as no surprise that we are seeing thrusters in 17.5, but coupled with double-unders may have taken some by surprise. Getting that first double-under and then consistently linking them together is a common goal most people share. Unfortunately, there is no magic pill, but having a rope that is personalized for you will make the learning process a bit easier.
Rx Smart Gear has some affordable ropes that are available in a variety of colors and cable weights. If you are newer to jumping, we suggest going with the Elite 2.6 weight, and ordering a cable that's about 2 inches longer than what you measure. Once you have your rope in hand, check out the following video for some drills and then practice, practice, practice!
