Can you think of a day you walked up to the board anticipating the fate of your body in the WOD then see the list of movements and say, “Well, no RX for me today…What’s the modification?”
In an article from the CrossFit Journal Greg Amundson learns a tough lesson when his poor command of double-unders costs him a trip to the 2009 CrossFit Games. What happened after that is the real story.
I did the first two Last Chance WODs, and when I got to the deadlift/double-under workout, I ripped through the deadlifts without any problems. I stumbled through the first 10 double-unders in a row before getting tripped up and missing a revolution. Then something amazing happened: I performed 33 double-unders in a row. That was 23 more than I had ever done before.
