    Rabbi Doubles Down

    Just double that a few more times and you'll have it!

    Rabbi Doubles Down

    I finally did my "outgoing test" today to finish this challenge. Got 35x DU unbroken! Not a PR, and I'm still inconsistent. :-( Scoring... Weekly Practice: 120/120 points Challenge Test: 70/100 points Total: 190/220 points = 86%, B OK, that's not bad. I'm used to being a straight A student, so I have to remind myself that a "B" is good even though it feels like a failure to me. Time to level up... I pick up 12 out of 15 points for this challenge... STRength 11 + 4 = 15 -- not only got my 5x95, even got 5x115! DEXterity 10 + 1 = 11 -- I improved my DU technique if not my max set; I can fe

    Well, I finished the week with another perfect 20/20 for effort, so I've got 120/120 points on that front. I have to test out and level up though...
  4. Updated... contributed another 15 pull-ups today. They were L-pull-ups, but it doesn't look like I get a bonus for those even though they're harder.

    Yes, I saw this last week. Every single thing that guy is doing wrong is a problem I have too. Also watched Carl Paoli's progressions on DU. At the end of the day, I just have poor coordination and no rhythm — it's part of why I was never good at sports. :gloomy: On the other hand, I remind myself... When I first learned to jump rope 20 years ago, I couldn't even do single-unders... Practice!!!

    Week 5, Thursday... struggled through 50 DU today. :-(
  7. I can help! Yesterday's WOD included 45 pull-ups, and today's included 48 burpees and 20 pull-ups. Go Rangers! Oh, many thanks to ShadowLion who called this challenge to my attention!

    Week 5, Wednesday... spent some time practicing DU with the new rope, and I definitely saw some improvement!

    Week 5, Sunday... OHS: Got my first ever Sotts Press at 45, and did several of them, even got one doublet. I still need to get my torso more vertical in the bottom of the squat. DU: Practiced with my new Freedom Jump Rope: I see how over time this ought to help me improve -- unlike the speed rope I've been using, I can feel where the rope is, and that feedback should help me to better time my jumps. But for now... disaster. :-( Well, at least I get full practice points for week 5, 20/20 again, so 100/100 points earned to date. Looks like I'm going to get an A+ for effort on this quest

    Week 5, Friday... wow, I haven't been posting, but I have been training. Haven't been doing much with OHS or DU though... but I've been working on HSPU which certainly contributes to OHS strength and MU which contributes to shoulder stability. Got a new rope based on a coaches suggestion and did some DU today, it wasn't pretty. Coach says this is a good rope to learn with, so I'm hoping...

    So let's see... end of week 4: 20/20 points, total is 80/80 to date, A+. I decided to order a new rope because I'm convinced that mine is too short. We'll see if that will help me! Week 5, Monday... lots of OHS. No DU today.

    Week 3, Sunday: Ended the week with some strong OHS, got a 3RM PR @ 105. Points for week 3: 20/20, so 60/60 so far, A+. Also rowed 500m for time today, 1:32.9, PR. Almost one year ago on 7/12/2013 it was 1:33.9.

    Week 3, Wednesday: WOD had a ladder that included DU; I went unbroken for 3-6-9-12-15. On the round of 18, I got 17 unbroken. Not bad!
