Are you READY?

IMCF is preparing us for the unknown and unknowable. Each of us have improved on the 10 physical skills of Crossfit:

I. Endurance - The ability of the body system to gather, process and transport oxygen
II. Power - The ability of a muscular unit, or combo of muscular units to apply maximum force in minimum time
III. Accuracy - The ability to control movement in a given direction or at a given intensity
IV. Strength - The ability of a muscular unit, or combo of muscular units to apply to force
V. Stamina - The ability of the body to process, store, deliver, and utilize energy
VI. Agility - The ability to minimize transition time between one movement pattern to another
VII. Flexibility - The ability of maximizing range of motion at a given joint
VIII. Coordination - The ability to combine several distinct movement patterns into a singular district movement
IX. Balance - The ability to control the placement of the bodies center of gravity in relation to its' support base
X. Speed - The ability to minimize the time cycle of a repeated movement

Which one have you seen the greatest gains and which one do you still need to work on?

Whoa.... someone needs to tell the Army about these ten general physical skills ..they are only tracking 3 or 4

I've seen the greatest gain in power, specifcally speed strength because of my recent oly bias in training.
Weakest is strength. I'm not sure whether it is lack of training or age that is the culprit, but maintaining my CF Total numbers is a challenge.

I have seen an increase in all ten, but the greatest is probably in flexibility and strength.

I still have a long way to go, but I still need to un-hook my plow and work on speed and continue to work on coordination. I think that is what is holding up my muscle up.

That is my favorite Crossfit video ever!!

My biggest improvement since starting CF has been power. I started with and have maintained decent strength, but I can now apply as much strength in 20 minutes as I did in 90 minutes before.

Flexibility is where I clearly need the most work. My shoulders, hips, and lower back need a better range of motion. That will improve my form, efficiency, and more. I'm really looking forward to the mobility clinic!
