Ideally, CrossFit is to train for any contingency and this is possible solely by randomizing the workouts. This is not to say thought is not put into the workouts! The workouts are systematically programmed with a science and careful exposure to weight lifting, gymnastics, and metabolic conditioning.
In your everyday life, you perform movements that copy motor recruitment patterns. Examples would include moving from a standing position into a seated position (squatting) or picking up a heavy object from the floor (deadlift). One would never think of these everyday movements as something to learn and progress in a gym setting. CrossFit thrives on preparing people for safely performing these movements.
In order to properly measure and calculate a member’s power output, the workouts must be timed and logged. If you are new to CrossFit, your power output will be lower than the member who just celebrated their 1 year anniversary. We at CrossFit Lifted want to ensure your safety by introducing you to the technique of each movement before we focus on increasing your power. Don’t be discouraged . . . Focus on progress, not perfection!
CrossFit focuses on a number of general physical skills: cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy. If the focus was on the low powered isolated movements, it would be extremely difficult to touch on all of the above mentioned skills.
