So I did my first open wod last night. I got to the box about a half hour early to practice to see just how bad the double unders were gonna suck. And don’t get me wrong they did suck. But no matter how I did on the wod it didn’t matter because in that half hour before the wod I got double unders!!!! It was so exciting!!!! A girl at the box I’m at for the week was watching me she came over and said keep your shoulders up and core strong. Of course I was sure I have done this already and it did not work. Nothing works. I was never gonna get double unders that’s just how that was gonna be. Double Single Double Single that was gonna be what I could do. Well I tried what she said anyways even tho I swear I have before, and how would this work anyways when I have had so many people tell me so many things about double unders to try to help me? Two simple things she said. I grabbed my rope, lifted my shoulders up, tightened my core and jumped. And I got 3 doubles. WHAT!?!?! I had to run across the gym to thank her and then pray that I didn’t lose them the next try! lol The next try I got 8! Hello Double unders! Who knew something so small could be so exciting! Now I don’t think this really helped me with the wod. Maybe alittle bit but they still killed me and under the pressure of everyone watching and being judged I could only do 3 max strung together. But like I said It didn’t matter because I was leaving the gym with a new PR something I wanted so bad for so long. So on to the open WOD I got 3 Rounds Plus 24. Not bad. I was hoping for at least 2 full rounds so 3 plus was good for me. Now I’m excited to see what the next Open WOD will be! I wish we didn’t have wait a week to find out! lol

Have any of y’all done the first wod yet? And How Did it go? Share!!! πŸ™‚

Anyone else get Double unders for the first time because of this workout? It’s amazing how one workout can push you to do something you never could do!

    Good for you!!! I had a WOD earlier this week with a TON of DUs and my shins are still sore!
    Congrats…I remember what it was like when I got my firsts for the first competition I did. Feels great, huh?? πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘

  2. Ok gotta ask what is a double under? But, very true, it’s funny how smallest thing can make a huge difference! Great job!

    My rope fell apart in the middle of it. My priceless response was looking at my rope in denial and then at my judge like “soo what now?” Thankfully he reacted quickly and gave me his rope, still wasn’t great. Will redo tomorrow πŸ™‚

    I didn’t ave double unders either until the night before when I got 2 together! I only got three rounds, but considering I didn’t even though I would get through 2 I was plenty pleased with that! I can’t wait for the next one either, hopefully it’s something I can actually do!!

    Lol, I know these Double Unders…, I messed up my first round- soooooo nervous… 😦 I just got my new rope, so I have to get used to it. I did 258 reps but I know I could do better, this does upset me. But for sure, if I try it again, the same thing probably will happen… So I stay with my reps for this time πŸ™‚

  6. I so feel what you shared on this post! Thanks for sharing. πŸ™‚ I can also barely do DUs prior to doing Open 14.1. Perhaps it’s adrenaline rush or that dire need to perform DUs that got me through it for the first time ever. I still can’t string them now, my PR is at 2 unbroken haha, but single double was good enough. Can’t wait to get better at it!

    Congratulations!! That’s so exciting!

    HOLY COW!! That’s fantastic! DUs are the bane of my existence! I linked 4 in January but then had the time off…got a DU workshop coming up in May but till then I’ll keep my shoulders back and core strong and see where that gets me!

    GO YOU!!!
