Coordination

Coordination is the ability to combine several distinct movement patterns into a singular distinct movement, and its importance goes far beyond helping you cure your white man’s overbite on the dance floor. Improving your coordination is a neurological change, and can only come about through practice.

I can go into any globo-gym out there, and turn any unsuspecting treadmill junkie into an absolute ninja on the bicep curl machine in about 30 seconds. Why? There isn’t much coordination involved in a bicep curl. Try doing that with a snatch, a push press, or even an airsquat.

The functional movements that are at the heart of the CrossFit program are complex and have a huge coordination component to them, and practicing the movements with PVC will help improve your ability to perform them. Think of the importance of coordination this way: lots of practice = Fred Astaire; no practice = Fred Flintstone.
