The Most Awesome Guide to Double Unders

Let’s start with a definition… what are double unders?

double under is a popular exercise done on a jump rope in which the rope makes two passes per jump instead of just one.

It is significantly more effective than a single rope pass in that it allows for higher work capacity. It takes a bit of coordination and determination to master double unders. Those with less coordination will find it a little more difficult.

The double under must be executed with more intensity in order to complete a high number of repetitions without mistake. The main key to double under success is learning how to control the rope. Rope control will help you coordinate your jumps to the whipping of your wrist.

Many athletes prefer to use speed rope specially designed for CrossFit training that is made of a thin wire cable making it easier to perform double unders.

Check out the videos below for an awesome guide on how to properly perform double unders:

As I was browsing for double under tutorials, I came across this awesome 10 week jump rope transformation video… check it out – it’s great motivation!

 How to Kettlebell Snatch Like A Pro

A kettlebell snatch is a full body, power exercise that works the back, shoulders, quads and hamstrings.  It is primarily considered as a strength exercise.  You pull a kettlebell off the floor from a squat position, swing the weight up, then dip under it, and press it overhead.  The key is to perform the movement quickly and explosively. If done properly, this one exercise burns 20 calories per minute!

Watch this video to learn how to improve and perfect your kettlebell snatch:

CrossFit: Why It’s Worth Trying

Image result for motivation crossfit

Below are 5 reasons why CrossFit is worth a try if you’re looking for a fitness journey that can make positive changes in your life.

  1. It’s a challenge: CrossFit can provide a challenge both mentally and physically.  Some say that if you are not progressing then you’re regressing and embracing a challenge leads to progress.

  2. You will definitely see results: if you commit to CrossFit, you will see results in your agility, strength, endurance and overall health.  It will also encourage you to eat nutritious food to fuel your body so you can improve your performance and generate better results.

  3. It creates empowerment: CrossFit makes you feel empowered when you complete workouts you never thought would be possible.  It gives you a sense of ownership, control and contributes to the mindset that you are a total boss.

  4. It’s a culture and a community: CrossFit individuals experiencing real challenges and providing endless support for one another quickly become a family, NOT just a class. Most gyms participate in group activities like The Open or local competitions, and many encourage members to give back to the local community outside their own walls.

  5. It’s workout with a purpose: CrossFit doesn’t only specialize in one area of your body.  It is an overall fitness experience that is fun and aims to improve quality of living by making everyday movements part of programming.

Have no idea what to get the special CrossFitter in your life for Valentine’s Day?  Well, look no further because we’ve put together some gift ideas to make them smile from ear-to-ear this Valentine’s Day (not a sponsored post).

Out of the Cave Meal Delivery Service – Meal Prep for Athletes: Have you tried the TWO NEW meals?  Pollitas and Pork Adobo?  They are so DELICIOUS! Every Monday night at 8 PM fresh meals are brought to CrossFit San Ramon for your CrossFitter.  If you’d like to order custom meals, please go to outofthecavefood.com/order to get started!

Designs for Health at CrossFit San Ramon: Give your loved one the gift of pre and post workout shakes, bars, vitamins, supplements, joint health, etc. The bars and shakes taste oh so good and just about any CrossFitter (or fitness fan) would love them too!  Check out http://www.crossfitsr.com and let Tim or Lori help you with any questions you might have.

US Cryotheraphy: Buy your CrossFitter a session for Valentine’s Day.  CrossFit San Ramon members receive a special of $29 for 1 Whole Body + Localized Cryotherapy + Hydro Massage + NormaTec Compression.

Speed Rope: A lot of CrossFitters own their own jump rope, but if you’re buying for a newbie, a speed rope is a great option. Most of them are adjustable, so you can give them one that they can later customize to their preference.  These can be found online through Amazon, RxSmartGear, or RPMTraining.

Paleo Cookbook: Not every CrossFitter eats Paleo, but many of them are healthy eaters. Here is a list of Paleo Cookbooks worth buying: Juli Bauer’s Paleo Cookbook, Practical Paleo by Diane Sanfilippo, Fed & Fit by Cassy Joy Garcia.

Calf Sleeve: Having rope climbs in a workout means that you NEED some sort of shin protection. Otherwise, you’re ripping up your leg, which does not feel good. (It also looks pretty gross.) Knee-high socks are a great option, but slipping on a calf sleeve is so much easier! Give your loved one a pair for Valentine’s day.

Magnetic WOD Smartphone Mount: This mount is great for recording Olympic lifts and other movements to help improve form. It’s also pretty awesome for taking photos/videos for your blog or Instagram!

I hope you found these suggestions helpful.  Now go out there and make your CrossFitter a happy Valentine!
