A Closer Look At ‘Accuracy’

Accuracy is often a widely overlooked component of ones’ fitness in a world where most of us are solely focused on building strength and going faster. However, just because it’s not as readily obvious as its more familiar brethren doesn’t make it any less important. As the greek philosopher Xenophon once said “Fast is fine, but accuracy is everything.”

We frequently judge our performance on the time or weight listed on the whiteboard. We should also be judging ourselves on how we performed throughout the workout… “Did I accurately receive the bar on my clean…? Did each of my WallBalls hit the mark…?”

Take it from Mike Tyson — he recognized the importance of accuracy when he said “People don’t have the slightest idea of just how hard it is to break somebody’s jaw… They think it’s just the power. But it’s the ACCURACY of the power.”
