What is a Chipper?

The chipper format is a classic CrossFit structure. You have a large number of tasks that you complete in order. They are designed so that as you fatigue in one task, you switch up the demands and keep going. There is a cumulative effect, of course, but the variety allows for incredible metabolic demands.

The variety also becomes a great equalizer. Everyone has strengths and weaknesses, and when the workout has 10 elements, both are likely to be featured.

CrossFit Scottsdale Kids: Coordination

We tend to take for granted the skills of coordination.

  “The ability to combine several distinct movement patterns into a singular distinct movement.” ~Coach Glassman

Some of us are more coordinated than others but the good news is that coordination can be trained.  The best way to train coordination is through repetition of good movement patterns.  For CrossFit Scottsdale Kids this process starts early.  CrossFit Scottsdale Kids picks a skill to learn and practice for each class.  By repeating and practicing the functional movments of CrossFit we can gain a good foundation for more complex movements. The ability to control one’s body is increased and the nervous system is stimulated and changed to recognize the movements throughout the life of the student.   For those of us who wish we were more coordinated-hang in there-it will come with practice.  For our kids, don’t let them get to the point where they think they are un-coordinated.  Start early with good functional movements.  The first one on the list…the squat!

Check out the Moon Valley High School Swim Team who got a visit from CrossFit Scottsdale today.  Boy did they get their squat and coordination down with wall balls and med ball cleans!  Great job Rockets!!
