Default Re: Double bass-speed - struggling, pain

The unison bd exercise is a good one, you can do the same with your hands. It's so easy to flam but difficult to be in perfect unison.

Another idea is to use less legs and more toe/foot action. This might be redundant, but using down/up, heel toe (much like guys like Jojo Mayer, Steve Smith etc) is much more comfortable than lifting your legs for all of the bd strikes.
