This message is brought to you from our own “colorful” Kevin Douillette….hey when I play secretary, I get to pick the accompanying picture…small perk of the job…plus, Rich is showing most excellent form on the topic of this post.
Give everyone 2 guesses as to who the author of this post is:)
Kevin has kindly volunteered to conduct a double under clinic next Friday night, September 21st during class time. Pre or post wod to be determined. Next Friday will also kick off a “100 Day Double Under Challenge”. What the heck is that you ask…Below is his message and challenge to us all….
100 day double under challenge….
on day 1 you do 1 double under, day 2 you do 2 double unders, etc etc all the way to day 100 doing 100 double unders
You dont have to do the double unders unbroken. (Although like everything crossfit this is completely scalable to your level and some of us will be doing them unbroken as a challenge to ourselves (and maybe a little friendly competition).
I know some of you have some difficulty chaining them together. Hopefully you dont shy away from this challenge as remember you only have to do 1 on the first day! How hard can that be? And by the time we get to the 20th day you will have done plenty. This is a great way to practice double unders.
If you struggle with double unders or haven’t given them a honest try and focus yet, this challenge is for you. If you are stuck doing double singles, this challenge is for you. If you resemble someone frantically stomping out a campfire doing double unders, this is for you. You get the point, again, with everything crossfit, you pick what you want out of this challenge and get to work.
We will have a chart on one of the whiteboards for you to keep track of the days. There is no cost to participate other than doing your homework and some special rolling and mobility that will be also be talked about at the clinic.
We will also be taking some names at the clinic to place a group rope order at an approx cost of $25 each. Dont let not having a rope be the reason you dont participate. Plenty to go around to start and many of you will want your own rope as the volume increases.
Please post interest in the clinic and the challenge to comments along with your intended double under goal.
Hope to see you all next Friday night.
