Quick post today as there is much demand for the computer. I wanted to tell you a story about a man and his jump rope. Every afternoon Jeff comes in about 20 minutes early and hits the jump rope to work on the double under. Some days are better than others and he is steadily increasing his number. He shows two things by doing this: preservance and a commitment to technique. You'd be wise to follow his example.

There is nothing we do in Crossfit that is not heavily dependent on technique and form. Sometimes extraordinarily complex technique and forms. Even running can be improved by form correction, adjusting landing position, the pull off the ground, etc. This is to say nothing of the clean and jerk and the snatch, two of the hardest weighlifting movements we'll do in here. It takes practice to make it work. And time. So pick something that is hard for you*, something you hate seeing come up in WODs and come in early (if you can) and work on it. Even 10 minutes a day, spent on form will pay large dividends in the end.

*The colloquil term for this is a "Goat". As in a movement that gets your goat. Identify yours and get to work!
