Strengths & Weaknesses

The Weaknesses Status Bar is a bird’s eye view into a deeper analysis of the Strength, Mobility, and Technique issues an athlete might be facing. In each weakness area, we compare your levels on certain lifts and movements. Large discrepancies in levels indicate possible weaknesses.

Green dots indicate that there isn’t a large discrepancy in levels for that particular weakness area.
Orange dots indicate a spread of 5-10 between the highest and lowest levels in that area.
Red dots indicate a spread of 10+ between the highest and lowest levels in that area.
Gray dots indicate that we don’t have enough results from the last 6 months in that area.

Clicking “View More Details” will take you to the “Analyze > Weaknesses” section, where you will be given 12 different graphs that will help you identify different types of weaknesses. Above is an example of one of these graphs. Each graph uses your individual levels in each of the lifts/movements to compare your proficiency and highlight discrepancies. In this particular graph, we compare your level for Shoulder Press, Push Press, and Jerk. If all of your levels for these three lifts were the same, that would indicate that you are balanced between the three lifts compared to the rest of the community. In this example, we have the chart from a member of CrossFit Kinnick (Danny O.). As you can see, as the lifts get more dynamic and technical, his level goes up. This indicates that his strict strength is not as developed as his hips and Olympic weightlifting technique, compared to other CrossFitters. So we might recommend that Danny focus more time to developing his strict overhead pressing strength, to help bring that level in line with his other overhead lifts.
