Skills and Drills
Double-Unders: Week 5 Day 1

Stringing Double-Unders
You’re now ready to start stringing double-unders! Start small, with a goal of just two unbroken. Think about landing and quickly rebounding into your next jump. Having minimal time on the floor is key.

Once you’ve mastered two reps, shoot for 3, then 4, then 5…keep going!

Goal Workout:
– Max reps of unbroken double-unders.
– Track your best score of the day.
– Then, set a goal to beat your last number the next time you practice.

Advanced: max unbroken cross-overs

October Challenges! 

Physical Mobility Challenge: 1,000 Step-Up Challenge 

The challenge will take place for 4 weeks, each with a different goal:
Week 1 (October 1 – October 7): accumulate 200 step-ups throughout the week
Week 2 (October 8 – October 14): accumulate 400 step-ups throughout the week
Week 3 (October 15 – October 21): accumulate 600 step-ups throughout the week
Week 4 (October 22 – October 28): accumulate 800 step-ups throughout the week

Step-ups can be performed on a 20” box or on any safe object of about the same height (chair, bench, a stack of plates, etc.). If athletes intend to perform Chad weighted, then the challenge reps should be weighted as well. But this is not a requirement. Any step-up reps performed throughout the week will count towards your weekly total. They can be in a workout, at the gym, from home, outside, anything counts! Just get it in within the week.

Scaled Option: accumulate 200/300/400/500 step-ups and they can be done at a lower height.

We will be using the Mayhem Affiliate – Monthly Challenge track to log this challenge. Each day you will log the number of reps you completed. If you’re planning to break them up, you can log where you’re currently at, and then update your score throughout the day. Then, each Saturday, there will be a separate scoring section where you will note if you completed the weekly challenge target that week.

To be eligible for the prize, participants must successfully complete the entire challenge by logging/confirming in SugarWOD that each weekly target was met. (Note that you cannot make up any missed step-ups the following week). At the end of the challenge, one name from the eligible list of Rx participants, and another name from the eligible list of Scaled participants will be chosen at random. The Rx winner will receive a CFA hoodie, and the Scaled winner will receive a CFA t-shirt.
