The Hopper Model

If you missed out on our last post you can check it out HERE

In it we covered CrossFit’s first fitness standard…10 Physical Skills

Today we are covering CrossFit’s second fitness standard and that is the Hopper Model.

The essence of this model is that fitness is about performing well at any and every task imaginable.

Picture a hopper…

 

 

And it is loaded with an infinite amount of physical challenges, where no one or no thing is affecting what is chosen…And then being asked to perform well from anything drawn from the hopper.

This model suggests that your fitness can be measured by your ability to perform well at these tasks in relation to others.

The implication here is that fitness requires you to have the ability to perform well at ALL tasks, even unfamiliar tasks and tasks combined in infinitely varying combinations.

In practices this encourages you to vary sets, rest periods, reps, exercises, order of exercises, routines, periodization, etc. because if you focus or specialize on any one thing, it will come at a cost in another area of your fitness.

We are after a higher quality of life and to be able to handle whatever life throws at us…

And since nature frequently provides largely unforeseeable challenges, here at CrossFit Saved we prepare ourselves by striving to have our training cover as many physical tasks as we can, while keeping it fun and constantly varied!
