Usually Practice CrossFit produces a video that we want everyone to steal and use to their own ends. Maybe you laugh at it, try to disprove it, or share with a million friends because it was just that awesome. Not this time, this time, we are doing the stealing, and we want your opinion.
The video above is straight from the Mother-ship CrossFit.com herself, and it features Rob Orlando, a pretty cool dude, and if I remember right, he’s kinda strong. In the short vid, the full one is available via the journal, Rob critiques an athletes inability to go faster. In the video Orlando says, “if it’s (technique) flawless, it’s not fast enough.”
My question to you, oh valuable subscriber, is Orlando right? And don’t just agree with the dude because he can lift heavy things, only inbred copycats let others do the thinking for them. Post your thoughts and observations in the comments below.
Some things to think about are;
The difference between technique and standard.
If Orlando is correct, then how does that apply to competition, or does it? After all, if it wasn’t flawless, it doesn’t count right?
Of course each situation has it’s own technique, but is sub-par technique the way to speed, or is an addiction to perfect technique for each situation the true hallmark for future development?
Just some things to chew on as you weigh in on the comments below. Start a dialogue, even if you don’t have a side, make an argument.
