  1. From my personal experience with double unders, I think there are two other things to consider.

    1. The height of you jump. I find in this video he is jumping quite high – which can become taxing. The smaller you can make your jump you will conserve energy and also, increase time and speed. I don’t think this is something you can develop right away but something over time.

    2. Something else to take into consideration is the location at where the rope hits the ground. The further out in front of you the rope hits the ground the higher the bounce of the rope off the ground. In turn,this means you will have to jump higher. Conversely, the closer the rope gets to your feet, the less height you will be required to jump. Again, resulting in speed and a better time.

    Just some thoughts that someone passed onto me that has dramatically improved my DU’s.

      Great idea Jeff!!!!

      Great summary of what a Crossfit Moncton class look like!!

      Message to people that are too shy to try Crossfit:

      We have a great bunch of friendly people at CF Moncton, everybody will introduce themselves once you put your first feet on the floor of the gym.
      Come and try the drop-in and you will be hook tomorrow… just do it, don’t post-pone it, just do it!
      Don’t think that you are not in shape enough to do Crossfit, we will help you get in the shape you want, fast!

    Frank is selling tickets for the snowmoble association. The draw is for $20,000. You can buy one ticket for $100 or 1/10 of a ticket for $10. The prise would be shared at $2000 each. Only 1500 tickets sold in total so odds are good. If interested, see Heather or Kevin.
