Re: What exercises aren't part of crossfit programming, but you think should be?

Any focused movements through the frontal plane seem to be ignored. Sliding movements (basketball defensive slides come to mind) could easily be done in a small or large space. Weighted exercises could also be done using shoulders, adductors/abductors, trunk stabilizers, etc.

These seem rather functional, especially for those playing sports.

Can you expound on this?

I'm not sure why these aren't covered by OH presses, squats, and thrusters.

Re: What exercises aren't part of crossfit programming, but you think should be?

- Laterally pushing a plate across the ground using the side of the foot
- Isometrically holding weights with arms extended to sides, parallel to ground
- Iron crosses, or easier sub, for those with rings
- Any form of lateral trunk flexion/extension

Just a few off the top of my head. I'm not saying these should be routinely incorporated or that they are necessarily the most efficient use of workout time, but actual movements in this plane seem to be minimally prescribed. (Contradicting myself by adding isometric holds, but hopefully my point is clear.) My main point was regarding unweighted lateral movements (slides, shuttle runs, jumping jacks, etc.). These would be a nice change and could easily be incorporated into a circuit with the more foundational exercises.
