Maybe also work some 3/4, 6/4, 6/8 and 9/8 time signatures to draw out of your effort the triplet feel.

Practice your rudiments as triplets. For example, doubles, singles, paradiddles, etc.

Triplets played in double strokes I found a good foundation before moving on to other rudiments in triplet-time, as in the chart below. If you make a habit of counting as you play, it will help you remember where you are in the bar at the same time as remembering where you are in the rudiment.

Practise the double-stroke triplets (and all rudiments that are reversible) starting on one hand, then the other. Otherwise you will become “one-handed”. It will also move you on a stage if you then start the sequence off with a single stroke.
