So yesterday we talked about efficiency and economy. Standards can also be placed in this bracket.
Standards are movement requirements that are set in place to ensure correct technique, injury reduction, allows reproduction of correct movements for measuring work capacity and in a competition sense ensures all athletes perform the same movement to be compared against. For instance a person performing half range air squats will be able to squat quicker than someone performing full range squats giving the appearance of more work but in fact the person doing full range would have more benefit.
For the next fortnight at CrossFit Norwest and RAW everyone will knock back on the intensity and concentrate a little more on FULL range of motion performed with as best technique as possible. Remember slow is smooth.... And smooth is FAST
