I've been doing CF for 3 weeks now (have gone from 7 dead-hang PU to 15 today!) and have been plugging away at the level 1 & 2 skills. I just noticed today that Accuracy, one of the 10 standards of fitness, is nowhere on the list. Do you guys have any suggestions for a skill standard for this?

Accuracy is inherent in some of the more advanced moves like Olympic snatch and the clean & jerk. As moves get more complex coordination accuracy agility and balance come more and more into play.

For real accuracy though skills like darts, basketball, archery and stone throwing are good ways to train. One problem is that these type of skills fall outside Crossfit training so they are hard to work into the standards. The other big problem with me prescribing accuracy standards is that the development of accuracy is very skill specific - you have to find something that you like to do and work on it.

For general physical accuracy though gymnastics practise can't be beat - again, that falls outside the scope of the skill standards

The Athletic skill Standards can now be found at
