Legion Podcast #16: Doing the stuff that isn’t fun

Allie Boudreau DB Front Squat

People love training their strengths.

And people love training their weaknesses.

But what about the stuff that isn’t fun?

Stuff like movement quality work, corrective exercise, pacing strategy, and skill work.

These things don’t have clear testing protocols, don’t have a clear return on investment in terms of improvement for training time spent, and they have a long time horizon for improvement.

So, how should athletes work on improving these pieces that can be real limiting factors in their performance – but aren’t terribly fun to work on?

Check out the full conversation with Todd and Luke to learn:

  • How to find the right balance in training between stuff that you’re good at so you can maximize your strengths – and “weakness” work so you can shore up your weaknesses
  • How to think about progression in boring work that doesn’t have a clear ROI – like mobility work, corrective exercise, and subtle skill work
  • Why “what got you here won’t get you there” is applicable to the training of high level CrossFit athletes – and the dangers of trying to just always do more training sessions and eat more paleo
