Yup. 20 minutes of double-under heaven. It's not about how many you can do in 20 minutes, or even about your biggest unbroken set. This is about learning to control a skill that most people just throw themselves at haphazardly. Making yourself hit that set of 5, then 10, then 15, etc., forces you to refine the technique and get into a groove. I think this is why many of us got further than we thought we could today.
For me, it's all about finding a 'lucky' place on the floor, with something at eye level on the wall to focus my gaze on (this time it was a TRX strap), then keeping my reps tight and consistent. I couldn't complete this WOD the first several times I attempted it, but now I can get the whole thing done in around 16-18 minutes usually. Once I get it under 10:00, I'm gonna come up with a new WOD called "Space Flight Simulator", where you go to 100 reps.
Congratulations to Rachel and Russ on their successful double-unders today!
