In Part 1, Starrett discusses paying attention to detail to create a better CrossFit athlete.
“Intensity is a harsh mistress,” he says.
According to Starrett, on our road to achieve general preparedness through CrossFit, our bodies take a beating. Through a survey of participants at his seminar, he shows how many CrossFitters have experienced problems in their necks, shoulders, backs, hips, knees, ankles and feet.
“CrossFit is turning out to be the most effective way to find flaws and inefficiencies in human movement I’ve ever seen,” he says. “If we’re missing a range, we’re missing a piece. We’re going to find it.”
“We found a programming that’s really found out all the inefficiencies,” Starrett says.
