Todd and Fitzy getting in their Monday make up of 18.4!
It’s the last week of the Open and that means the last “Friday Night Lights”! We plan on starting at 5:30pm, running heats of 18.5 until everyone is done (probably around 7:30) and then celebrating with a Pot Luck party! Bring a dish to share and come prepared to bring your best game, cheer on your fellow athletes, and have an all around good time!
On the Minute x 20
Odd Minutes: Movement 1
Even Minutes: Movement 2
“Goat” is CrossFit slang for a movement that challenges us. Examples: Double-Unders, Ring Dips, Overhead Squats. These are the best days to turn perceived “weaknesses” into “strengths.” No better way to do that than today.
We don’t improve our technique with a high heart rate–that’s what we refer to as “training”. Today is geared towards “practice,” dialing in our mechanics with a controlled heart rate. As an example, to improve the technique of double-unders, we want to practice at a low-intensity where we can really focus on the mechanics of the hands and the timing of the jump.
When we couple “training” with “practice” throughout the week in the right doses, we set ourselves on the fast track to results. Choose two “Goats” to work on, and we’ll alternate between them on each minute. Coaches will have great suggestions in class.
Make up a WOD that you missed, or a WOD that you have really been wanting to try, work on skills, etc!
*You must still come to one of the regularly scheduled WOD times.
