That seems obvious enough, yet it wasn't until about 2 years into my double bass playing that it occurred to me to practice one foot at a time, rather than always practicing alternating LRLR. By working intensely on one foot at a time, my double bass speed increased dramatically. It just suddenly felt like much less work.
