Goat” is CrossFit slang for a movement that challenges us. Examples: Double-Unders, Ring Dips, Overhead Squats. These are the best days to turn perceived “weaknesses” into “strengths.” No better way to do that than today.
“Goat Days” give you an opportunity to refine skills or work on your weaknesses. Today is geared towards “practice,” dialing in our mechanics with a controlled heart rate. As an example, to improve the technique of double-unders, we want to practice at a low-intensity where we can really focus on the mechanics of the hands and the timing of the jump.
Choose two “Goats” to work on, and we’ll alternate between them on each minute. Coaches will have great suggestions in class. For those who want a little more structure, there will also be an alternate, low impact 20 minute EMOM in class posted every week.
