Accuracy

Accuracy is the ability to control movement in a given direction or at a given intensity. Like when you were a kid and were throwing a snowball at your sister’s head from 30 feet away – that’s accuracy (well, unless you missed). Why is accuracy practice important? Because without it you’ll miss that stepping stone in the creek and end up drenched while your date is laughing hysterically and every guy out there knows the importance of accuracy when relieving himself.

Accuracy is more than just hitting the bulls eye in darts or making a blindfolded world-record trashcan shot with a wad of paper in your office in front of a fantasized stadium full of screaming fans. It’s also jumping the barbell into a perfect overhead position in the snatch, knowing instinctually how high to jump and where to put your hands in order to grab the pullup bar, and landing on top of the plyo-box gracefully (and not toppling over the front of it with scraped up shins to show off for the next 10 days).

Practice your accuracy at stuff. Throw the paper wads, jump on the boxes, and do the snatch. Your fitness will only become better because of it. And if you happen to be a chameleon, you’ll get lunch too.
