Tonight is “Goat” night! What is a goat? See the post below for a description of the Goat from San Fransicso Crossfit.
Tomorrow is the CrossFit Total. We take 3 lifts, Press, Deadlift and Squat, add up the weight and that gives you a total. You get 3 attempts for each lift. Please come with an idea of how much you plan on lifting.
Yay! New Dynmax balls!
“Our good friend and super coach Brian McKenzie from Crossfit New Port Beach called us last week with a new idea he’d hatched. He called it the “goat”. Ironically we had also been kicking around the “goat” concept at about the same time. Thus was born the “do what you suck at workout”. Goating is choosing two or three exercises you fear or hate or both, and running full steam at them. For naming elegance sake, just insert your name in front of the word goat to describe the combination of exercises that you both hate and suck at. ( In the photo above, JD hates handstand pushups, Michael hates heavy Kettlebell swings)
Did you do the “(insert exercise here)-goat”? “Yeah, it was hard but my, “(insert exercise here)-goat” was harder.”
On Saturday, our level 2 monsters got first crack at the newly minted goat concept.
Most of our athletes included some kind of overhead squat. Hmmmm. Curious.
The bottom goat line is this. We should go headfirst after the things we know we suck at, and never want to see come up in the workout. Fortunately for you, in Crossfit we do.
Imagine taking the Goat concept to the rest of your life this week. Can you do one thing you hate doing? Can you do one thing you are afraid of?
Post your personal workout Goat to comments. And if you are able to Goat your real life in someway, brag about that too.”
In this workout you move from each of five stations after a minute.The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. This is a five-minute round from which a one-minute break is allowed before repeating. On call of “rotate”, the athletes must move to next station immediately for best score. One point is given for each rep, except on the rower where each calorie is one point.
The CrossFit PEI team won the PEI (Prince Edward Island) Marathon Corporate Relay recently. Without any training except for CrossFit, they entered an eight person team and finished first out of 42 teams! Now, that’s validation.
Let’s see how we do at the Cross Country meet this weekend!
There is a 5km race for women and a 6km race for men on Saturday, October 25th. The women start at 10am, while the men start at 10:30.
All races will be held on the U de Moncton soccer fields and the arboretum behind the residence LaFrance. The course is grass with uneven footing and quite hilly.
The cost is $10 per individual. Participants are asked to complete their registration on-line by going to the Athletics NB website at www.anb.ca and clicking on the on-line registration section. This will be open until October 23. When entering your Team Name on the second page of the registration, choose “Independant“. If you register the day of the race, you will be charged a late entry fee of $5. You’ll need to sign-in at the meet before your race. The sign-in is open starting at 8:30am. I would suggest getting there at least 30min before your race time.
The top 3 finishers in each age class (Juvinile, Junior, Senior, Masters) will receive medals.
Student therapists will be available on site. CEPS building is available for changing/shower. Washrooms (port-a-potties) will be located on site and at Champlain library across the street.
CrossFit Moncton will be closed on Saturday, as some members will be participating in this event. This is a great way to put our training into practice, so come on out and join us. If you have any questions, please contact me.
