How Tim Ferriss Taught Me To Do Double Unders, & The 10,000 Double Under Challenge

how to do double unders

For those of you that are unfamiliar with what a double under is, well, I can’t really say I blame you. A double under is the passing of a high speed jump rope not once, but twice under your feet in a single jump.

What’s yours right now?” This was a seemingly random Facebook update posted by Chris Winfield just a few days ago, a man whose knowledge, habits, attitude, and drive for success (and taste in music) I’ve come to look up to quite a bit in the past year or so since meeting him at the Blueglass TPA conference in Tampa, FL. His post received a lot of likes, comments, and activity by some very successful individuals and […]
