The mere thought of homework is likely to bring back memories of elementary school where assignments were doled out on a regular basis and expected to be returned the following day for a grade. I don't think anyone cared much for homework but it served a valuable purpose in reinforcing the lessons taught in class. There is much to learn in CrossFit for newcomers and veterans alike and, on that note, we all have certain things that we should spend some time working on when we get home after class or on our off days. These things can range from nutrition to skill work and everything in between. Maybe your hip mobility is preventing you from reaching proper depth on your squats - mix in a variety of hip stretches before bed every night. Trying to get those abs before beach season this summer? You should probably be doing dead bugs or L-sits on a regular basis to strengthen your core. Setting aside ten to fifteen minutes a day to work on something may not seem like much but it will add up over time and you will eventually see the results of your effort and dedication.
Unlike it's scholarly counterpart CrossFit homework is optional and isn't graded by anyone but yourself. The amount of extra work that you do is tied directly to your goals and the areas of fitness that you want to do well in. What do you do outside of the gym to help you become a better athlete?
