Why do we practice the fundamentals over and over again? So that when we do a complex movement that requires speed (like a jerk, clean or snatch), our bodies already know how to do the fundamental elements without much thought, and we can work on the more technical nuances of the lift and on developing the proper motor engrams (pattern or sequence). This is typically known as “practice” – as in practicing dribbling a soccer ball, or shooting a free throw, and is usually not referenced in regard to fitness. Do you participate in a sport that requires practice? If so, what is it, and what are you doing for practice?
