Double unders – rotation and hand placement
WOD – “Run Annie Run“
400m run after each round
Mechanics are revisited on our double under skill work today. After 18.3, we had a close encounter with 100s of double unders and learned where we can improve. Approach today’s skill session with the intention of improving the hand placement and wrist rotation. Focusing on these, adding repetitions, and slowly varying rope speed will open new efficiencies for you – plus easier smoother double unders!
If you hit double unders and begin to break apart at 10 reps, aim for hitting 5 and 8 reps at a time and then pausing. Correcting your positions and go again. Do not go to 10 or above until you are consistent. Same with those who can hit 50 – check form at 30, 40 and only when consistent go to 50+. These corrections are slow to adopt but each adjustment now will deliver that day a bit sooner!
The WOD is classic Annie (minus the 50 extra reps) with the nice inclusion of a sprint (note “sprint” not run, move!). This run can be done around the building (3x) or on the glorious TrueForms. The run is not a break, so MOVE and get the run done. Nothing complicated here – this should feel like Annie but with longer duration. We won’t be as frantic but we should be fast (so if Annie for you is 95% max effort, aim for 92-90% and lets go – you can rest when it is over)!
