This is the short tale of how I (finally) learned double unders.
And why I'm challenging you to take them on this month!
I spent the rest of the month spending just 5 minutes a day practicing. I would get home, hit the driveway, and start jumping.
At the end of that month - February 2010- I could easily string 20 + in a row, fresh. And no longer moaned when double unders showed up on the white board!
The moral of the story is that there is no shortcut to mastering double unders. Just diligence. But you CAN do it. In just 5 minutes a day, for 30 days.
Make December 2015 the month
YOU double down on double unders!
