How to do a Double Unders to improve your performance in CrossFit WODS.

Elbows are kept in tight.
Points of Performance for Double Unders
It’s important to know that the only thing that changes from a single to a double is the speed of the rope and the height of the jump. A double under is twice the revolution speed as a single under, the jump is a bit higher.
Aim to be jumping about 6-8 inches consistently while learning double unders.
Just as the rope begins to pass under your feet on the first repetition rapidly throw the double revolution of the wrist.
Moving the jump rope is done with revolution of the wrist and not movement in the shoulders.
Tips & Tricks
Try to alternate singles and doubles, while maintaining same height of the jump, while learning to string multiple reps.
Try to initiate jump right before rope reaches feet.
