Many of you probably noticed the addition of tiny red dots on the whiteboard this week. Those dots dictate what skills you're focusing on in class that day.

There are 10 possible skills you could see on the whiteboard: strength, endurance, speed, power, mobility, stability, coordination, agility, balance, and stamina. We believe that the combination of all these skills creates the fittest possible human. We need to train ALL these skills to become well-rounded humans. 

That doesn't mean, however, that we'll be focusing on all the skills every week. Different cycles will have a different emphasis. For example, the work we're doing in this cycle (hang snatch, hang clean, push press) is very coordination-heavy. You'll see the coordination dot more than you'll see the strength dot, which we saw almost every day in the last cycle.

What does this mean for you? This should provide you with an extra level of focus for your workout. If you know what you're trying to accomplish for the day, it becomes easier to set goals for your workout, and manage your expectations. If the goal is coordination, and you're struggling to pick the bar off the floor, it's probably a good idea to lower the weight until you can put in quality work on that coordination. We hope this provides some clarity to the programming on a daily basis.
