Week 6 of QUARANTEAM starts today which means your abstention period has come to an end! Hopefully we've helped you develop some good habits and you're not craving whatever it is you gave up too much. We're not professional athletes so the odd beer, glass of wine, digestive biscuits or whatever it is you struggle with won't sabotage your gains but also serve to keep you sane and happy!
Our new weekly task is a CrossFitter's right of passage: the double-under. Learning how to do double-unders can be an insanely frustrating experience - and also a painful one as you whip yourself on missed attempts! Once you have 'got' double-unders (which is often taken to mean managing to to 20 or so unbroken reps on a good day!) it's tempting to stop practicing.
This week, the task is to work on your double-unders every day, whether you are beginner, intermediate or ninja! For beginners, the task is to spend time each day practicing to get the first, and then a second and so on. For the intermediates, your aim is to work towards more consistent and larger sets. And for the ninjas, your aim to to become even more ninja!
We are aiming for consistent daily practice: it doesn't need to be a lengthy session,10 minutes each day will be plenty. And always spend some time warming up before you begin!
We'll be posting tips, progressions and suggestions for practice throughout the week so stay tuned!
