Then switch it up: how about doubles between your right hand and right foot, and variations between the left-side limbs. Do as much as you can - in my experience, all the mental focus and neural-pathway-encoding transferred over to the kit easily, and it just took a little working up to play the stuff with some feel.
This is a great exercise for independence. Try some inverted doubles with your feet, and then put regular doubles over that with your hands and see if your brain doesn't explode
