The Importance of Doing Practice Rounds before High Intensity Fitness Training.
At our CrossFit facility we have adopted a lesson format that includes a general warm-up, mobility, skill progressions and practice rounds within almost every class. This flow allows our coaches to effectively train athletes from beginner to elite. I can definitely say that the consistency of this model has shown empirically and statistically that classes run smoother and athletes at all levels continually improve movement quality and capacity.
I want to just delve into the specific importance of why we include rehearsal rounds as this seems to be the one area athletes don’t always buy into.
Trust in the process, work on improving yourself and your performance improvement will follow.
