Crossfit utilizes a ton of different movements and most of them transfer over to help improve other movements. For example improving your back squat will make you a better runner. However there are some movements that require focused effort and practice to make them efficient and consistent. Pistols would fall under the “skill” category. Not only do you need strength in order to perform a pistol, but you need coordination, flexibility, and balance. These elements of fitness need to be practiced in order to teach your body neurologically how to execute the movement. That being said, skills need to be worked on your own before and after class. Show up a little early and warm up. This week we tackle the pistol.
