I was watching Sportscenter the other day and the show was highlighting the daily "Top 10". These were the ten best plays of the day. Every single play, regardless of sport, was a spectacular feat of athleticism. However, these highlights tend to ignore the fundamentals that allowed those plays to happen in the first place. I'm more impressed by someone who can do the basics so well that it appears to be effortless. I find more value in an athlete that time and time again displays the ability to do the common act uncommonly well.
In CrossFit, this virtuosity is found by practicing the basics over and over again. It's why we cover movements like the squat, deadlift, press, clean, and snatch every time they come up in a workout. Your coaches know that many of you are familiar with the movements, but to achieve virtuosity, you must practice and practice perfectly.
