It's important to know that the technique changes as we speed up a double stroke. When we're playing slowly, we play 2 deliberate wrist motions per hand, and we can continue that technique into the mid range tempos as well. The wrist is really useful here, as it is both strong and stable, but the trade off is it's not fast.. The fingers however, are fast - IF we train them.

To get faster still, we need to convert to one wrist stroke then a finger snap, per hand. This video looks at 3 hacks for developing the finger snap, including one exercise that doesn't even use drum sticks!
