Practice does not make perfect, but perfect practice makes perfect. When going through a WOD there is no time to be thinking about the small details. Keeping up the intensity requires that we push past the point of perfect control. The idea being that we need an 80-20 split. The quality of our movement in the middle of our workout should not be below 80 percent perfect. The question then is how do we get better? The answer is use the warm up and cool down to practice skills. Work movements slowly and keep the mind on the small details. The reward of mindful practice is improved technique, improved technique leads to faster times and heavier loads, all of which lead to more elite fitness.

Workout: Spend 45 minutes working on something you are not good at.
