Re: Max Double Unders in 2 minutes!!!

Triple unders are next year's logical evolution for games finalists. Seeing how anyone going to regionals this year already proved they can do plenty doubles.

Very true. Evolution is the right way to put it.

Lets see what it throws at us.

I haven't been able to figure out triples....I can do them, but not consecutive. More practice I guess!

I hit a recent PR on 2 min double unders as well.

Did "JT" with an 11# vest, 2 min rest, then 2 min double unders - 183.

Re: Max Double Unders in 2 minutes!!!

If you guys figure out triple unders let me know what helped you get them. I can also get a single here an there but in can in no way string them. I guess if they wanted they could also start doing reverse DU's. Those are hard and make my brain hurt...

JT? 21-15-9 Handstand push ups, ring dips, push ups??
If so that's very impressive

Slow the beat down for triples...start with slow doubles then fit them in...the most important part is to not land flat footed or you'll never string them together

Re: Max Double Unders in 2 minutes!!!

I have been able to do triples a couple times, and what got them for was not just double-double-double-triple, surprisingly it was single-single-single-triple.

I also had to do a bit of a "power-jump" (Bring my knees up crazy high on the jump) and land in a low squat in order to get them.

Once my shin splints heal, Im going to finally shorten my new Buddy Lee rope to proper length, and then work on getting my double unders better. After that, then ill work on consecutive triples
