General Physical Skills – Accuracy

Its easy to neglect Accuracy as a General Physical Skill. After it doesn’t seem physical. But its important in all aspects of physical movement, consider the accuracy that you need to ensure that you’re in the correct position for a movement. Now imaging doing 150 Wallballs, maintaining correct position through out the movement, for every rep in as short a time as possible – in a scenario like this, accuracy is the different of millisecond wins and injury.

When we look at the Crossfit definition of Accuracy we see it being defined as The ability to control movement in a given direction or at a given intensity. So you can see how Accuracy as a General Physical Skill directly impacts and supports other General Physical Skills – Agility, Coordination. Agility itself is also supported by other General Physical Skills – Cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, Stamina, Strength, Flexibility, Coordination, Balance – so my training these General Physical Skills and being able to maintain the points of performance of a movement you can develop accuracy, once you’ve got accuracy at slow speed and weight, you can start to scale up on both.
