This “Artie Stevens” Memorial WOD was designed by Naptown Fitness (Indianapolis, IN, USA) as a tribute to the man who they described as the epicenter of the local CrossFit, fitness, and health revolution in Indianapolis. Artie died suddenly on November 3, 2017. Naptown Fitness hosted an event, first bringing athletes together to remember Artie with this WOD, about three weeks later on November 28.

“Arthur “Artie” Stevens IV was the owner of Indy’s Kitchen, Artie’s Paleo On The Go, and Artie’s On Central. Every day he strived to make days better with his vision of Artie’s Paleo On The Go. He connected with over 50 different fitness facilities and impacted even more lives. To honor his legacy we ask that you help provide for the future of his children.”

“Goat Day”
EMOM 16
odd minutes: movement 1
even minutes: movement 2

“Goat” is CrossFit slang for a movement that challenges us. Such as double-unders, pull-ups, overhead squats or handstand push-ups for example. To turn these perceived weaknesses into strengths, we need to practice them. We generally don’t improve our technique much 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. For example, to improve technique in double-unders we need to practice at a low intensity so we can really focus on the mechanics of the hands and the timing of the jump. When we couple “practice” with “training” throughout the week, we set ourselves on a faster track to results. Please come prepared with two “Goats” to work on today, and we’ll alternate between them. Choose an appropriate rep scheme for each movement that keeps things in the low “practice” intensity range.

For the five Thursdays during the Open, we will have these Goat Days. Since we do not know what movements will be in the Open workouts, this is an opportunity for athletes to choose what they would like to work on as opposed to programming movements that may or may not show up. Sticking to the same movements over the five weeks may have the biggest potential for improvement in athletes. Picking different movements from week to week is also an option. If athletes remain diligent and consistent across these five weeks with their practice, they will get better.
