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

    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 feel where the rope is now and have more control STAmina 4 + 1 = 5 -- still a weakness :-( CONstitution 11 + 2 = 13 -- persevered in both DU and OHS even though I felt like I was making no progress WISdom 10 + 3 = 13 -- met my life goals :-) CHArisma 9 + 1 = 10 -- those OHS are bad

    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 but an F for actual results.

    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!

    Week 2, Sunday: Great day today! Hit two of my fitness goals for 2014! "Christine", RX 13:53; goal was to get under 15 minutes. Christine is: Row 500m 12x deadlift @ body weight (178; I used 180#) 21x box jump @ 24" 3 rounds for time OHS: Got 3 sets of 5 OHS @ 95#! Wow!Week 2 points: 20/20 again, so 40/40 cumulative so far. A+!

    No, not 64 unbroken. A total of 64 DU completed in a 2-minute period.

    Week 2, Friday: WOD included 40x DU in each of 4 rounds, so lots of good practice, but unfortunately I still generally only get around 10 unbroken.

    Week 2, Thursday: AMRAP 2 DU, got 64 today, that's twice as good as last week!

    Week 1 wrap-up: 10/10 points for DU practice, 10/10 points for OHS practice, 20/20 total. A+! Week 2, Monday: redid Open 14.1 this week, game on! Got 206 reps beating my prior 180 from last March. My DU were better and my snatch was stronger. Total DU was 146, so technically I'm done with my practice for the week, but I'll keep at it anyway.

    Week 1, Friday: definite improvement! WOD included 10 rounds of 20x DU, and I got 3 of them unbroken! Odd, I improved as I fatigued, I think because it slowed my jumping pace and just allowed me to get everything under better control.

    Week 1, Thursday: did an AMRAP 2 DU after running a few miles; it was a disaster. Only got 30. :-(

    Week 1, Wednesday: lots of DU in the WOD today, a total of 160 in rounds of 32. They weren't pretty, it took me 4-6(+?) sets to get 32x DU, but I got them all, and they were better than Monday. Maximal unbroken set was around 10-12.
