I managed 14 unbroken Double-Unders

I know this isn't a massive achievement, but I have a goal to get to 50 unbroken DUs by the end of the year. The other week, I managed to get 14 unbroken which is the most I have done so far. I'll keep you updated with my progress, but for now you can check the video below and follow me for more Crossfit updates.

Turn your WordPress Website into a Progressive Web App (PWA)

Some of you may be wondering what a PWA actually is, allow me to explain. It's a JavaScript file that uses Web Sockets that performs various tasks. Tasks such as caching your files for faster page loads. Caching also allows a user to view your website even when the user is offline. This means they can still view all of your wonderful content in mobile or broadband blackspots. This does however mean that it won't be up to date until they have an internet connection, but at least they can still view something.
