WOD

“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. Choose 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.

And then…
