Become a Ninja at Double Unders
Written by Nuno Costa

If you are like most CrossFit athletes, you probably struggled in the beginning to master the technique of jumping rope and, more specifically, mastering double unders. Believe it or not, there are no magic trips – it just takes practice. You need to put in the time in order to become better.  

I think the most important thing is making sure you have a rope that fits you; often times, newer CrossFit athletes don’t want to spend a ton of money on fitness equipment, and that’s understandable.

Being Present
Written by Nuno Costa

As a society we are more connected now than we have ever been. Everywhere we go, we take our devices – smartphones, tablets, laptops, etc. Even our children are growing up with this sense of always having something available to distract them from what’s really going on around them.

I want to challenge you to take a 24 hour break from all technology to just BE PRESENT. This may seem impossible but it’s probably one of the best things you can do for yourself. Can you remember the feeling you have when you are on vacation and you have no worries,

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: During the intermissions at the 2015 Kill Cliff Reindeer Games by Proving Grounds Competitions, there will be CrossFit Games Athletes working out for charity! And we need your help to determine the weights they use!! Going head to head, we have Josh Bridges vs. Julian Alcaraz and Val Voboryl vs. Becca Voigt! The workout: 5 min AMRAP 50 double unders w/ Zeus rope 5 hang cleans 185/125 5 muscle ups For every 10k raised, we increase the weight by 10lbs.
