Level Method

 

What is the Level Method?

The Level Method provides clear, tangible metrics to track the development of your fitness. It does this by using a collection of 15 assessments that cover a broad range of physical skills. These assessments are broken down into a series of 23 levels laid out across the MAP (Method for Athletic Progression).

The Level Method MAP provides a visualization on how you rank on each individual assessment, as well as your overall level (color) based on the aggregate of all 15 assessments. This is similar to the belt system from martial arts.

Testing Period

 

The CrossFit Games Open is all but a distant memory.   We've taken a few weeks to recover with some volume building, partner workouts, general aerobic work, and some structural balance pieces.  

Over the next two weeks, we will go through a testing period.  Based on the results we will set some priorities for the upcoming training period to start following Golden Week.

Make sure you are logging your results each day using WodUP!  This will help make sure we get a more accurate assessment of the strengths and weaknesses…
