Re: Quality of Movement - Where to draw the line?

I believe an athlete can master a movement to the point there is little or no value in invest much time in getting better.

An example would be Chris Spealler at the top of his competitive career probably shouldn't put much time into getting better at #95 thrusters. He was so close to the theoretical speed limit of the movement and could do huge sets unbroken.

This doesn't mean he shouldn't do Fran when it is programmed in his training. As soon as someone stops something capacity starts to decline.

What it does mean is the highest value training for him was trying to get stronger. That is where there was the most room for improvement. This is what he did.

Understand 99% of us have plenty of room for improvement in almost everything.
