Functional exercises and puddin' patch

Exercises to push your performance

After many years of struggling with speed, accuracy, and performance mode training, we've come up with 3 exercises and one challenge to dig those proverbial heels into growing those skills.

The functional exercises are meant to continually push you.  There is no magic number that'll grant you an award or to tell you that you've made it.  These are simply exercises, so don't over think it.  Use these for practice and for measurement.

The Puddin' Patch has a fun back story found below.  Long story short, this is a fun challenge for seeing how accurate and precise you can be with an interesting mental management aspect.  Plus it's fun to flex on the internet with the cool patch that you'll receive after a successful attempt.
