The sub for double unders is tuck jumps...

Comment #7 - Posted by: Midnitemonster at July 2, 2007 7:47 PM

Quick question about the sit-ups:

Are these unanchored, full sit-ups or are we supposed to use a ball or some sort of anchor?

#1 - Don't sub the double unders, this is a good chance to improve a lot.

Comment #9 - Posted by: Dr. Eric at July 2, 2007 8:02 PM

dcron: Problem with the video should be fixed in a few minutes assuming you are getting a 404 error. One of the mirrored video servers wasn't picking up the latest vids. Try again and if that doesn't work then manually replace "media.crossfit.com" with "www.crossfit.com" in the video URL and you will get the video straight away.

Comment #11 - Posted by: Allison_A2_NYC at July 2, 2007 8:32 PM

Im shocked. I would of bet money that Annie would win. Did she compete?

Comment #12 - Posted by: puma at July 2, 2007 8:41 PM

Is there a secret key in mastering the double-under? I can skip rope without fail. Yet, try a double-under and I inevitably hit the back of my head or something. It's usually the result of increasing velocity, really whipping it, which in turn puts nasty welts on my skull.

May I have more peas, please?

Comment #13 - Posted by: Hale at July 2, 2007 8:43 PM

Impressive work.

The flyer says hopper-style WOD. Can someone tell me what was chosen? Also, what was the distance on the run?

Finally, I couldn't understand the names of the women (perhaps because my girls are watching Ninja Warrior in the background)...can someone tell me who they are again.

Thanks,

howard

Comment #14 - Posted by: Howard at July 2, 2007 8:55 PM

Just to toss this out there, any suggestions for improving my technique on double-unders? I'm fine with singles, but my doubles aren't great.

Comment #15 - Posted by: Svor at July 2, 2007 9:16 PM

Jolie, I can't express in words how proud I am of you and how fortunate we are to have you as a trainer at Crossfit One World. As usual, you inspire us all. You kick ass girl!

Great job to all the other girls that were there too!!! The bloody hand shot was just too cool!!

Comment #16 - Posted by: freddy c. at July 2, 2007 9:21 PM

#13, #15 - dbl under help

What helped me in the beginning was to concentrate on jumping higher (tuck-jump like) and then work on the timing of the revolution to match. It was the welts on my legs that convinced me to get them out of the way. Oh yeah, tuck a bit or you'll get them on your head too. How's that for empirical!

Slowly you'll get the timing down where you're not having to jump as high and the revs. match. I say slowly because it only started to get better when I inserted them into the warm-up or after a strength WOD tabata(ish) style. 1min on, 30sec. off, as many rounds as appropriate.

Try practicing while doing singles to get a rhythm - single, single, single, go-for-it, single, single....and so on.

I still get welts, but it is a weak spot for whatever reason...so I practice.

Comment #24 - Posted by: chris at July 2, 2007 11:09 PM

Im sorry, i didnt mean to be rude. I simply meant that every time I watch Annie in a video im amazed at what she can do. No disrespect was meant.

Comment #33 - Posted by: Jorge E at July 3, 2007 3:03 AM

was it push press for the hopper workout or push jerk?

Comment #34 - Posted by: brent colson at July 3, 2007 3:11 AM

I had a look at the double under videos. If you look at Brendan and disregard the rope you see a guy hovering mid air with a high frequency "wing flapping" and a lower frequency lower body work. This is similar to a hovering hummingbird.

This is kind of a nice analogy because the hummingbirds have the highest metabolism of all animals save insects (600+ (ml O2)/(kg min)).

Comment #35 - Posted by: stoguy at July 3, 2007 3:27 AM

Off topic, but has anyone seen that magazine ad for Saturn? It's a page of writing on the left and it goes like this:

"Nice biceps, chicken legs. What good are 18" forearms if your legs belongon a barstool? Huge pecs if you get winded after one block? Contrary to the baby-oiled crowd at your gym, balance is important. Important in strength. Important in life... (then it talks about it's car's balance b/w power and handling etc.) It's time to drop the dumbbells and hit the squats. It's time we all had a little more balance in our lives."

I read it and thought, "YES, someone finally realizes what we've know all along: balance!" I thought it was a great ad and a great analogy.

Started off doing 2:1 with singles on the jump rope, but I believe I'm on the road to mastering the double under. By the last two sets (20 & 10), I had it down.

I did back squats, push press, and dead lifts afterward to work on form.

Enjoy your day, everyone!

Day 20
CFWU (+push-ups/-sit-ups) Pull-ups getting a little better, but still beat from trying for 120 on Sunday. I will own this warm-up.

"Annie" as Rx'ed 14'17"
Struggled with getting more than 3 DUs in a row at 1st, but had it down for the last set. Hopefully can have a better time with my next go

If it helps, I just focus on whipping the rope a bit faster and getting my feet out of the way (like a tuck jump) and the rhythm was starting to come today. I have to start with singles at first most of the time.

A question about pushups:

Should they be military or wide stance pushups?

I do a mix of military (with hands ~1 foot apart and elbows touch my sides of the way down), and wide (with arms at 90 to sides, forearms at 90 to upper arms at the bottom).

Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.


Jon.

Comment #57 - Posted by: Medwig at July 3, 2007 6:19 AM

subbed double-tucks after trying tips from Norm (thanks!) and watching the video posted by Tony (thanks!). Seems the problem is I jump inefficiently and early when anticipating the double, putting so much velocity and effort into making sure I clear the rope that the backswing gets me in the head. And that's assuming I don't jump (stomp is more like it) overly early and whack my ankles instead. DUs and Muscleups. These are my big challenges. One day. One day.

See the FAQ. For your convieience:
"Whatever you like; recommend picking one style and sticking with it so you can compare performance over time. Lots of folks like the ab-mat. Some of us do "military" situps, which come in a couple of flavors. Hard-core: Hands behind head, feet anchored, knees at 90�. All the way back until base of shoulder-blades hit the floor; up to near vertical. Or "Air Force" version: arms crossed in front, hands on shoulders or arms; feet and legs as above. Down position same as above; up to where elbows touch knees or thighs. Hands must stay on shoulders or arms. "Janda" situps are tough; you place a bar, board, partner's hands, or whatever behind your calves. Keep your feet flat on the floor; dig in with your heels and pull back hard with your calves against the bar. This should de-activate your hip flexors, thereby making your abs work harder."

If you're trying to max out on a hang power clean, are you allowed to squat or does that turn it into a hanging clean? If you're NOT allowed to squat, how do you know when you've maxed out?

All situps were glut ham sit-ups which really elongated my time. It worked my abs out VERY well, but not sure if I should do them all glut ham next time since I start to fail after every 5 or so as the reps get up there and my heart rate falls.

As far as doing double unders. I find it helps me to do one or two regular jumps then pull a double under. I can get into a rhythm that way and get 20 or so before I get fatigued and eventually miss one.

Had to do the DU's in increments of 10. I did one single under between every double. Every so often I tried 3 or 4 DU's in a row...but that smoked me! Great workout!

Started out doing "double-unders" but for some reason (incompetence the most likely cause), I could not get past 8 (the first 8 seemed pretty easy, strangely enough).

Threw the rope down, re-set the watch, sub'd "2X tuck jumps" instead.

Time: :14::48::80

WOD as rx'ed in under 15 mins.

I've got no rythm, and can't jump. But I finally did all the double unders as rx'ed! Best rythm was 1 single under:1 du, but that takes too long. Able to string about 5 du's together in the last many sets. On the up side, double under may no longer be my nemesis.

WOD as Rx'd 11 minutes 5 seconds. Strickly DU's-no singles.

It takes practice to do double unders. It is all in the timing. Jump a little higher (just a little bit) and turn faster and get a rhythm until you can keep doing doubles consecutively. Remember, its all in the turn of the wrist. High jumping is only going to screw up your rhythm.

Then, on to triples :O)

Got a good groove with the DU in the second round. First round best was 5 consecutive...mostly 3s. Other rounds were mixes of 3, 5, 7 at a time.

Sit ups on medicine ball...good stretch.

FOllowed up with 3 - 5 minute rounds of bag combos. Did 1 minute each of hands, feet, both, sprawls, push-ups, etc. First round did 12# MB burpee/thruster for a minute, but someone took it during round 2.

I believe the Top Female Awards went to:
1st Place: Jolie Gentry
2nd Place: Mary Rigney
3rd Place: Nicole DeHart

A quick word about the Games. My wife and I stumbled upon CrossFit in February and we are hooked. We drove up to the Games to be inspired by the athletes that have made CF a part of their lives, and we were not disappointed. The athleticism of this community is amazing and has motivated us to push ourselves even further going forward. But more importantly, our visit to the Games confirmed what we have encountered at CrossFit San Diego. CrossFit attracts some of the most gracious and genuine people we have ever met. It is a pleasure to be associated with such great people. Thanks to everyone that made the Games possible. For those of you that couldn't make it this year, get to the next one.

Situps broken to catch my breath laying flat on my back. Aerobic conditioning still needs work. I guess that's what I get for starting CF from the worst shape of my life.

As rx'd, 25:28. Time was slow, but it was the first time I successfully did Double-ups. Anyone on the fence deciding between double-ups and tuck jumps, I would highly recommend to go for the challenge and do the double ups. Once you get a rhythm they are way more fun, and I can feel the explosive power building in my calves.

CFWU x 3 and added 20 push-ups for each round.

WOD - 11:02.99. Did tuck jumps since I didn't have access to a jump rope and performed the sit-ups on a slightly declined bench. Had my hands behind my head for the first 50 but I was just too tired to keep them back there for the next couple of rounds.

Hang Power Clean 4x8 at 45, 75, 85, 95 to work on form and technique. Starting to get it down but need to work on power now.

I'm curious as to how everyone is able to do unanchored sit-ups so quickly. Does it turn more into a crunch at that point or are you still coming all the way up while keeping your feet on the ground?

I couldn't find my jumprope today (haven't seen it since the move). My new gym does have them but the first one they gave me broke 20 DUs into the workout so I had to restart. The new one was longer and it took well into the 30R set before I had the timing right with it. The only place to jumprope is a 30s walk from the situp bench. Its different from the one at my old gym so I have to rebaseline my time anyway.

The good news is that the surf was OH and barelling so I exhausted myself a second time at lunch. If its like this a lot I won't miss Trestles a bit.

Haven't done tuck jumps ever and no sit ups for years so this was a good one. Since I was learning to coordinate the movements as I went the speed increased pretty much through out. The balance to do "immediate" tuck jumps I found was essential to get intensity and I suppose necessary for DU:s aswell.

before I started this workout I couldn't do a double under. I just didn't work at it enough.
After reading comment #9 ,"Don't sub the double unders, this is a good chance to improve a lot.",I decided to try a little harder.After the first set I was linking them together. By the time I got to the round of twenty I was able to link 18 in a row.
When I finished I worked on them for a while longer . One more thing off the list. Now if I could buy a muscle up.....

Sub Tuck Jumps for Double Unders
14:43

Comment #209 - Posted by: Cameron at July 3, 2007 5:50 PM

28/f/154#

CFWU x 2 - worked on kipping my chin-ups. Made some improvement.

Brand X puppy mod - 35, 25, 20, 15, 10-rep rounds of rope jumps and sit-ups

Time: 10:00. I must learn double unders so I can move up next time.

I don't have much experience with rope jumping, and I hadn't been practicing because the gym rope broke and I never got around to buying my own. Excuses, excuses. I bought a rope today and pleasantly surprised myself during this WOD. My jumping sets were mostly continuous and comprised of subsequent jumps without any bouncing in between.

I sort of got half a DU after the workout. I cleared the first spin. The second hit me in the shins. More practice at continuous fast jumping will get me more comfortable with the rope speed and precise, confident jump timing required.

50-40... 1st 20 reps DU's - then tuck jumps for the remainder.
30-20-10... all DU's, got up to 8 in a row - really getting the hang of it finally. All situps with anchored feet.

8:58. Sit-Ups were anchored. My feet were placed under a loose chain-linked fence, so it was tricky trying to hold myself in place.

The D/U's really surprised me. I didn't realize how quickly they were going to wear me down.

I think I definitely improved on my double-unders.

From Boxing/Kickboxing I got real good with anything jump rope related. Just in case anyone is actually reading this far down the only way to get better at DU or anything else for that matter is to do them. Practice them and put in the work and then they will come with time.

Wow I thought I did a pretty good job with double unders as I worked up to 35 in a row on the 50 reps and unbroken sets for 20 and 10 until I saw some of the times on this site.
Amazing how some of you got sub 10 as rx'd. I did unanchored situps with the abmat. I did them unbroken but maybe my pace on them just was'nt fast enough. Need to pickup speed with the situps and do those DU's totally unbroken.
Nice job people!

CFWUx3 using ring rows and ring dips

later on, did 1/2 volume "Annie" 25-20-15-10-5 DU/situps abmat style

7:35, compare to 31:54 for the full version last time...I think the full version would have been in the 20 range this time, as I finally got double-unders to feel better. I think it's no coincidence that I shortened my rope to the recommended length. Could have/should have done the full one, but I am trying to taper. It's driving me a bit nuts.

Even when I was a kid, double unders were nearly impossible for me. I subbed by doubling the singles (100-80-60-40-20). The last 10 in each set I did practice double unders. I even got some of them.
Total time, 24:33

Also, during the warmup I got nearly all the pullups without jumping, 37 of 45. Looks like they are getting better.

Almost all of my double-unders were done one at a time (as in: double-under, reload, double-under, reload, etc.). I missed a bunch of them, just barely, but counted them anyway.

#281 Mike -- Similar story here. My son lost the jump-rope, so I had to use two dog leashes looped together. Made for a slow-moving rope. But that's what I like about CrossFit ... there's no shame in improvising.

anchored situps, DU were cumbersome b/c I was using a big nylon rope. Found a decent rhythm on the 30 set.

Time was hurt a tad by doing this in the ship's gym which is crowded. Double Unders were done mainly one normal, one double alternating. Good rhythm that way. Sit-ups were hand behind ears, straight leg, elbows to knees then elbows to mat.

I've done Annie twice before, she's one of my favourites, I think because it was the first WOD I could do as prescribed and the first where I felt I could compete with the Big Dawgs. Previous times were 11:52 in February and 18:58 in January.

The key really is the double under. The first time I did Annie I was doing single reps of DUs. With practice, by Feb I was able to alternate singles and doubles. With more practice, now I can do up to 40 DUs in a row.

for double-unders, subbed lateral hops over an 18 inch bar; it was a bit slower.

Declined Sit up board for first two sets then did various abb excercises for the rest. Leg Raise, L Hold, KTE.

I feel it is important to try and do double under if you can. I have bad shoulders from rugby and the rapid rotations of the shoulders that double unders makes you do is very important for shoulder stability. I.E. Not dislocating you shoulder.
