I’ve recently stumbled upon an interesting concept: the 9 foundational movements of Crossfit. While talking to a coach, he mentioned that during the Level 1 certification they were introduced to the nine foundational movements. Six months into my Crossfit adventure, it was clear why some of these moves, like the Front Squat and Shoulder Press, belonged on that the list. Others, however, didn’t make sense at all. For example the Medicine Ball Clean, what on earth was that doing on there?..
