Continuum vs. Progression

This short video by Gray Cook brings up a great point that are we actually working to progress people through their workout, training, and rehab even if it means taking more time at a specific exercise until they have mastered it.  If we work on a continuum and just continue to push people through to new exercises without being proficient in the one before we will find ourselves explaining and re-explaining an exercise that the patient just wasn't ready for.

Do we often get to caught up in looking forward when getting back to the basics may be more important?  He raises a great point that I think can be applied to training, practice and rehab.
