187 Double Unders in 2 minutes!!!!!

I am not sure how this compares but I recently did a test to see how many Double Unders I could get out in 2 monutes, in fact all our disciples did it.
I managed 187. Any feedback on a benchmark?
Here is the video so any feedback on tehcnique would also be awesome.

It's hard to nitpick when you did 2 mins worth of DUs with only 1 break. That's about the best DU rhythm I've seen.

Re: 187 Double Unders in 2 minutes!!!!!

That's about the right number you should get. I've gotten 203 in 2 minutes and that was with an all out effort, but I also love doubles and do them for fun on a regular basis.

The best two guys at my gym besides myself have knocked out 200 and 180 respectively.

So congrats, you can hold a good DU rhythm for two minutes.

Re: 187 Double Unders in 2 minutes!!!!!

I can't remember how long or where it is, but there was a video of a guy doing double unders for I believe at least 5 or 6 minutes straight (consecutive).

187 in 2 minutes is great!

Coach has stated the "gold standard" for DU's is 2 minutes without a break, which you pretty much accomplished. I believe there was a video about a year ago of Tall Karl going the whole 2 minutes on the mainsite.

Solid performance.

I was impressed. Anyone have the link to the other videos where they're going for 5 minutes?
