A Dirty Dozen of Double-Unders
Sucking it up with the double-unders on Monday paid off in spades today! I got 10 DUs unbroken and then… to my extreme surprise and delight, I got another 12 unbroken.
A dirty dozen of double-unders.
I realize, of course, that this means my days of swapping double or triple singles for double-unders in a workout are over. It’s true DUs all the way for me now. I can feel the welts already.

6-8 dips – rest 1:00
6-8 split squats, 10# DBs – rest 1:00
:20 burpees (max effort) – :40 rest
:20 double-unders – :40 rest
:20 row (recovery pace) – :40 rest
Our goal with the burpees was to be consistent on all seven rounds. Consistent is one of my middle names. See? Melissa Kathryn Consistent Relentless Joulwan.
My burpees: 7 – 7 – 7 – 7 – 7 – 7 – 8
My ego fought HARD to get that eighth burpee in the last round.
