Have you played on one of the slack lines yet?

In the form of fitness that we try to build using the CrossFit methodology, we want to improve on ten general physical skills:

– Strength
– Cardiovascular Endurance
– Flexibility
– Stamina
– Power
– Speed
– Accuracy
– Agility
– Balance
– Coordination

Balance is important as it demonstrates the control in the placement of the bodies center of gravity in relation to its support base. This is obviously important as we grow older, but it improves function and athleticism in sports and activities as well. Slack lining isn’t just for college kids! Try it out and feel the deep burn in the hips!

+ 5 Torn Pecs on Event 2? – FloElite

The way I see it? Most CrossFit athletes, even at the highest level, don’t practice virtuosity on the some of the gymnastics-based movements. A full lockout on the rings for a proper gymnast means a fully locked out elbow, using external rotation to keep the strap away from touching the arms. It would be a point deduction in the Still Rings event. Athletes who only practice a quick elbow lockout don’t get the full meal deal from the use of rings, which could lead to potential injury when driven beyond the point of exhaustion.

The same thing happened a couple of years back with the achilles/box jumps stuff. The lack of adequate plyometric training left the achilles not ready to be pushed that hard on game day, then POP.
