Today's Gift 150 Burpees For Time post times to comments.
We used to play a yearly mudbowl every Christmas break in high school. Funnest game ever. I miss you boys. Heading home to Sacramento tomorrow morning. I'll be back Sunday and it will be back to business as usual. January is going to be a great month, and I'm excited to see the continued growth of our budding community into the new year. I hope you all have an amazing Christmas and enjoy the family time. I know I will. I'll post some good bodyweight/low equipment wods from home.… read more →
Great OHS work Christos. Especially for your first time! Today's workout is not just a workout, its a prerequisite. If you can't overhead squat, you can't snatch. Many of the skills we learn are prerequisites, or strong correlates to other motions. By keeping programming varied, and concentrating on the specific skills of the day, your arsenal of motions will increase very quickly. This is not to say that some motions don't take a lifetime to perfect, but today you will be killing two birds with one stone. Today's Workout:… read more →
Rob's ridiculous range of motion on SDHP. Chin to bar is all I ask, I think its hitting your forehead. CrossFit Pacific Coast's holiday was my first true Holiday Party experience. I don't know if I enjoyed Baker's rendition of the "Night Before CrossFit" or the shenanigans that followed more, but it doesn't matter. The whole event was a great experience, and a reminder of the type of community we are starting to build here in Goleta as well. I am excited for the New Year and all of… read more →
Eric made sure to clarify that although it is no longer politically correct this is in fact an Xmas party and not a holiday party, which is more of a cop out than anything. We will be meeting down at CPC at 7. Then heading to Union Ale to finish the job. Although this is not on the invite I hope someone wears an awful holiday sweater. Also there is a white elephant gift exchange (<20$) to start the night off. Today's Workout 3-3-3-1-1-1 Power Cleans then 3 sets… read more →
Hopefully we will be seeing more of Monica in the New Year as well. Ha ha. CrossFit Goodland will be closed from Christmas Eve (24th) though the Sunday after (27th). I'm going home to hang out with my family and take a few days off. I hope everyone enjoys their holiday, and comes in ready to DW (do work) in the new year. There is a lot in store for both us here at CrossFit Goodland and the CrossFit community here along the Central Coast in 2010. Starting with Ventura's… read more →
Rob's got it. Heart is an intangible quality. Its the ability to show up when you are sore and tired. It is the drive that pushes you to keep pushing and keep fighting through tough workouts. It is your innermost quality that shines through when you hold perfect form even though is it easier to do incomplete, or improper reps. It forces you to be honest with yourself and others about your scores and times on workouts. Most importantly it is what makes CrossFit and life worth living. Check out… read more →

BJ Penn's fight on Saturday was incredible. While Sanchez has a great record, and more heart (and chin) than pretty much any fighter I have ever seen, BJ is on an entirely different plane. BJ stayed calm and focused, as opposed to the "whole new kind of crazy" Sanchez brought into the ring. A lot can be learned from watching a fight of this caliber. Like BJ in the ring, even though CrossFit calls for such high intensity output, we should still try to be as relaxed and controlled… read more →
