Technique, Consistency, Intensity = Results

Technique, Consistency, Intensity = Results

The movements we perform at CrossFit Naples are hard.  It’s the reason many people are scared to try CrossFit. Doing them requires focus.  It takes real effort to learn how to do these movements with good technique.

Even after you’ve learned a movement, you must practice over and over again to gain consistency in your technique.  One of your first goals with any movement should be the ability to perform it with solid technique while moving quickly, with heavy weights, high reps, long distances, and while fatigued.

Once you’ve gained this consistency, then you can add intensity.  Intensity is where the results come from.  The more intensity you can bring to your workouts, day after day, the better your results will be.  Intensity should be your next goal after consistency.

Everyone is at different points along the path of fitness. From learning good technique, to gaining consistency, to maximizing intensity, we are all different. Thank God for that.  You may even be at different stages for different movements.  And there’s nothing wrong with that.

Embrace it. Focus on getting a little bit better every time you walk in.
