10am til Noon. Not limited to lifting, you can work on your body weight skills or anything you like really. Don’t forget about Benchmark Training, still time to hit a “Girl”, “Games” or “Hero” workout. You can also use this time as an Open Gym Session, just make sure you have a plan.


5 Training Tips to Perfect your Double Under Technique


  • Hands in front of torso
  • Hands rotate from wrist
  • Good up and down bounce
  • Jump when rope is about to hit the ground
  • Practice linked singles, alternating single and Double-Unders, and then linked Double-Unders
  • Practice plyometric bounce with feet to develop the footwork/ jumping technique necessary for a double under
