Jon Levy, Chris Abraham, and Troy Hupp are on their way to Texas for the 2009 CrossFit Games Regional Qualifier. We wish you guys the best of luck. May the hopper be kind to you!
We are seeing many different movements coming up at the regionals. I think it's great to see CrossFit applying more than just thrusters, pull-ups, deadlifts, cleans, burpees, and running. We recognize and preach the value of exercise variety. When it comes to the hopper, the more the merrier. Odds have it that new movements will prove to be the most difficult. Remember exercises are skill and they are honed with practice and consistency. Learning and practicing difficult movements will do more for your fitness than focusing on your strengths.
Speaking of new movements, stay tuned for information on an upcoming workshop. We're going to learn some new bodyweight, sandbag, and kettlebell movements.
