TIME TO WORK WORK ON STUFF WE SUCK AT...GOAT DAY!
"What is a Goat?".....something that you struggle with, or when you see it in a WOD, you think, "OH CRAP!" We only get better when we practice the things that we struggle with, so let's work the skills we hate! Today will be programmed as a skills day...NO CLOCK! This will give you all a chance to really focus on those skills you struggle with, without the preassure of the clock.
Come in with 2-3 skills that you would like to work on and improve....some examples are, gymnastics skills, O-Lifts, double-unders, running or rowing. Some of you would REALLY benefit from a mobility day, if you struggle with squats or overhead movements due to limited mobility in those areas.
Please come in prepared that this day is going to challenge you mentally and physically, so try not to get frustrated.
