Define CrossFit
Constantly varied, high-intensity, functional movements
Define Variance
Preparing for random physical challenges IE the unknown and unknowable events
Define general physical preparedness (GPP) and identify the relationship of variance between GPP
GPP = broad, general and inclusive and variance creates this general condition which prepares you for the unknown
Explain the concept of failing at the margins of your experience and how it relates to GPP and variance
Constant variance prepares you at your margins of experience to prevent failure at margins of experience
Articulate the difference between specialization and GPP
GPP is random and broad; specialisation is focussing on specific skills
Define Intensity
Power -

Intensity is the independent variable most commonly associated with maximizing favorable adaptions to exercise
What are the 7 defining characteristics of Functional Movement
*universal motor recruitment patterns
*compound yet irreducible
*core to extremity
*high power producing
natural =?
universal motor recruitment patterns =?
essential =?
safe =?
compound yet irreducible =?
core to extremity =?
high power producing =?
*natural = involve multiple joint movements
*universal motor recruitment patterns = found in everyday life
*essential = to independent living & quality of life & inhibits increpitude
*safe = mechanically sound & safe post 1 max rep
*compound yet irreducible = you cannot breakdown into individual movements and get the same benefit
*core to extremity = mid line stabilization
*high power producing = load, distance, speed
Identify the definitive characteristic of functional movements
move a large load a long distance & quickly
Define and calculate work
Ability to perform real physical work as measured by force x distance
Define and calculate power
time rate of doing work or force x distance/time
Describe how power is related to intensity
Power = intensity
Articulate the relationship between intensity and results related to fitness goals
Intensity brings results
Identify the difference between absolute and relative intensity
absolute intensity is a number or result -

relative differs by degree not kind and is different for each individual which is based on the mental and physical ability of the athlete
