PERFORMANCE

 
 

OBJECTIVES

At CrossFit Sea Level, training for performance means that you are consistently taking extra time outside of class to practice and work towards one or more skills. We define a skill as performing one movement to a certain degree of proficiency i.e. one strict handstand pushup, one muscle up, front squatting 200 lbs three times, running a mile in 6 min etc.

PRIORITIZATION

We recommend focusing on one to three skills. The amount of time spent on practice depends on your movement goals, your current physical condition and your schedule.

BEST PRACTICES

The most important thing is that you are practicing on a consistent basis. In general, the best approach is to follow a well established program that uses progressions and movement variations and slowly builds in difficulty towards your goals. For programming, there are many resources online. Make sure you do some background research and run the programming by your coach. If you are committed, you can ask a coach for programming as well.

RATE OF PROGRESS

Most new and consistent athletes will quickly improve their movement quality and work capacity and eventually find that their progress in gymnastics, weightlifting and endurance stalls as more and more time elapses between establishing new personal bests. We encourage you to think of your athletic progress as ‘a slow trajectory towards a distant horizon’. Slow progress still implies improved fitness and will give you longevity.

If you wish to make accelerated progress towards certain movements (such as pull-ups, muscle ups, squat cleans, etc.), it could require extra time and effort outside of class. For this purpose we have created the performance track.
