My Bulls-Doubles practice routine - This routine will improve your game.

Okay this is one of my Bulls, Doubles combined practice routines. Notice that the numbers circled indicate that they are doubles. You throw three darts at the number and for each one you hit you get a mark. If you hit one you get another 3 darts at the number . If you should hit 2 on one throw you still only get three more at the number. If you miss you must move on to the next number. You keep going around the board until you have hit the number a total of 5 times. Once that number is closed you go on to the next open number or Bull. The inner or outer Bull only counts as one. If time is a factor make it three marks closes the number. I do 5 most of the time. This routine I have used for years and I promise you it will improve your doubles and Bulls. I like this routine because its simple and I don't get bored and of course you can add any double that you like. Good Luck!

Good grief! I think I'll block off a week to finish that routine. I might finish off the 30 bulls with 100 darts, but I can't even conceive how long it would take me to hit 48 doubles. I guess I'll have to try and find out.

This routine shows only 40 doubles total.For beginners However you can modify it to only say 20-10-5 to start my friend and say only 3 to close the number thats just 9 plus your bulls.
or 16-8-4-2-1 three to close the number for 15 plus your Bulls.

I think three marks is more realistic for my skill level. Here's my idea, I split the difference between your two examples above, but pick four doubles that I feel like working on each time. I might want to do D18-B-D12-B-D6-B-D3. Another might be 20-10-5-1. Or even, 16-8-4-2. Anyway, 9 bulls and 12 doubles. I'll let you know how that works.

Okay, just gave a run. I played 16-B-8-B-4-B-2 to three marks each. As I would have guessed, I cleared the bulls and 16 right off the bat, but flailed around on the 8-4-2 for the next ten minutes. I ended up with everything cleared but no marks on the D4. So I spent 5 minutes just trying to clear that. Definitely got the most practice on the toughest number for me.

It took me 20 minutes, so now I have a rough idea of how to customize the routine for myself. I think keeping four doubles, but playing for 5 marks may be better. I think this is great practice routine that can be customized for warm up times. It will be interesting to run your full routine. Good job on an effective training task. Bob's 27 has mostly just been humiliating for me.

After running my scaredy pants four double/three bull routine, I did a three mark run with six doubles and six bulls.

Finally, I bit the bullet and ran the full (*Saber*) routine at five marks. Whew. I wasn't prepared for the intensity and endurance required. It took me 70 minutes. The bulls became like soft targets, relief from the doubles. This is great bull practice by the way. This made them seem easier. I had my first combo where I cleared a double in one attempt. Oddly, it was double 2, supposedly one of the most dreaded doubles. Ha! I cleared the bulls easily and got down to the 16 and 5. One mark on the 5 and none on the 16. Took like forever to close the 16 and still needed two marks to close the 5. I have in the last few days started throwing a 26g dart (and I never feel it) but I was feeling the muscle pain and fatigue at the end. Those last two marks on the 5 were torture. But I did it. I now know I can do it. I have a better idea of throwing darts at an intense pace for a period of time. I need to toughen up anyway. My thanks to Saber for allowing me to enjoy great results in one of the few spare minutes I have been getting lately to really work out. If you aren't a great tosser, this is intense.

Thanks and of course you can change your doubles numbers here and there like 12-6-3-14-7 just to keep from being bored.

This is a fantastic idea for a nice practice session. I've been searching for something that will keep me interested in hitting the doubles other than just aimlessly tossing darts at the double 1

I wanted to bump this because it is helping me so much. I am sorry I was such a wimp when I first heard about it. I have not practiced doubles much and this routine seemed impossible to me. I have tried Bob's 27 but seldom get more than half way through. But I made it through this Bull-Double routine. And after that I started running it with out keeping track of marks. But there is something to be said for committing to finish, so I ran it and finished again yesterday. Our power was down from an ice storm and I didn't bother looking at the clock. But I swear it didn't feel like it even took an hour this time. I can draw encouragement from seeing the numbers slowly getting marked off. I feel better about doubles now and way more confident about bulls because they suddenly seem easy compared to the doubles. This one is a keeper.

I just realized that I had added an extra bull between the 16 and 8. But I finish the bulls off first anyway so I might even add another one after the 1 since the routine cycles back to the 20.
