These six exercises can make a huge difference in your fitness level. Check 'em out!
I'm all for the SMMF's. Let's see a workout like "carry a 150lb. sandbag up and down a flight of stairs for an hour" or "One handstand push-up every 30 seconds for 50 min." or "drag a tire up a hill"... yeah, those mess with your head

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

CF used to have WODs like "Practice handstands for 15 minutes." While that doesn't fit the model of a measurable WOD, which I think we can expect to be the standard for the WOD for the foreseeable future, there are ways to broaden the elements incorporated into the mainpage programming within that model.

TGUs may never be in a metcon on the mainpage. I'm good with that. However, they could be put into a heavy workout, e.g.,

DL 1-1-1
TGU 3-3-3
OHS 5-5-5

Other core work could be thrown in. Specific core-strength work is not considered necessary in many sports. However, gymnastics certainly isn't one of those, and that's a cornerstone of CF. We see situps and KTE in the WOD, but rotational or lateral stability movements could fit in the mainpage model, whether in a metcon (e.g., cross-chops) or in a strength workout (suitcase DLs). Isometric work could be thrown in, as well. Perhaps a workout modeld after Lynne,

3 rounds, for max reps/time:
KTE
suitcase DL 1/2BW
L-sit

The possibilities are out there. The main question is one of priorities, whether these sorts of exercises merit a full day's attention on the mainpage. They could readily be incorporated in similar contexts to these with inclusion of a more fundamental exercise.

I agree with the many who've said that the most valuable thing to add would be more short sprints. The explosiveness benefit is substantial. As some have suggested, the measurability issue could be overcome with an interval protocol, where total distance is the objective. Tabata sprints or reverse tabata sprints (10seconds on, 20 off) or even 15 seconds on, 1 minute off would get the job done rather nicely.

Me too! I use these with my clients a lot. They hate them. That's a sign it's good stuff

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

All of these tax me big time:

Short sprints
Jumping - forward and lateral jumping
Throwing objects

Hmm. Reminds me of a certain named workout on my list (for the first time) later this week. It looks positively grim. How many times have you tackled yourself?

Hey Patrick,

Too many times..and it hurts just as much and I'm embarrassed by my time just as much every single time. I hate me sometimes.

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

haha... yes, I remembered it quite well; most due to how quickly it kicked my butt. WODs like that actually make me look forward to semi-sprinting 400m.
