In this strategy you want two players to help each other to take control over apartments. They are the Chip and Dale of your team. Dale, being the wild one, will jump up to window room, clear bedroom and then peek down boiler stairs.
Chip, the patient one, will make sure no one can backstab Dale in window room. As soon as Dale peeks down boiler stairs, Chip will have his time to shine. Now it's his job to try to kill the potential counter-terrorist in halls.
While your sturdy chipmunks do their thing, two players will wait just below the top of middle. If you manage to find a kill in apartments you should smoke off arch side and push as fast as possible. If, on the other hand, you don't find a counter-terrorist in apartments you can smoke and flash truck side instead. This will make it easier to either take the site fast from truck side or split push from arch side and apartments. Remember that you have to go fast. Don't let the rotation get to the site in time.
The fifth player will make sure that no one pushes down banana, but as soon as it's time to go he'll join the main squad in middle.
Footsteps are a huge part of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. If you step too close to your enemy you will give away your position. This is especially important to bear in mind at the top of banana and in apartments.
You have tried to execute these strategies a couple of times, but every time you find yourselves getting caught off guard by a fast rotation. If this is the case you can use it to your advantage. A team that rotates early is especially vulnerable to fakes. Try to get a kill and use utility grenades on one site before you fall back and attack the other one.
If you notice that your opponents are particularly weak on one site—abuse that fact! Either they'll adapt, in which case you attack the other site, or you will cash in round after another. Good luck out there and remember, show no mercy!
