Your GOAT in CrossFit is a movement that you are not so good at, and that is putting it politely. It could be anything; barbell movement, gymnastics movement, body weight movement, kettlebell movement, or simply flexibility and/or mobility. The only way to attack your goat is to work on it!

Today’s Skill Work – Work on hip strength / mobility

We hope that everyone will take the time to pack a shoebox for this very worthy cause. Deadline to get boxes in is Friday November 12. If you don’t have time to complete a box you can contribute the money and we will fill a box for you. Thanks for your support and generosity.

Definition of Challenge: Demanding, testing one’s determination, willpower, abilities, skills and resources. A call to fight, as a battle.

Entitlement is a delusion built on self-centeredness and laziness. Nobody ever said that life was fair. Deal with it! Don’t compare your life to other peoples life. Live your own. Keep Calm and Mind Your Own Business…

“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle.”

On this day in history – November 08, 2000 – In Florida, a statewide recount began to decide the winner of the 2000 U.S. presidential election.
On this day in history – November 08, 1966 – Ronald Reagan was elected governor of California.

Strength / Week 1 – You will have 15 minute to find your 5RM Front Squat – work up to a heavy five rep set. Remember to log your strength numbers.
Warm up – start adding weight on the bar until you hit that strong set. Push each other today. Our priority today = Get Stronger. Is it a PR day?
Form – A Squat above parallel is NOT a Squat!
