The upcoming monthly focus for October will touch on the general physical skills which are “less sexy” but just as important as the others: Balance, Coordination, Agility, and Flexibility.
Things to look for during the month:
Flexibility – Mobility movements included in the warmup more frequently
Agility – Footwork and movements requiring changes of direction, Double Unders!!!
Balance – Pistols, Handstands, work requiring core engagement and stabilization, single arm movements
Coordination – Kettlebell work, Olympic Lifting, Kipping Pullups, Muscle Ups, and other gymnastics work & core-to-extremity movements.
Our “test” for the month in CrossFit will be the benchmark workout “Mary”
We asked a few coaches their thoughts on the upcoming month and to share what they enjoy training for optimal flexibility, agility, balance and coordination. Check it out here!
