The squat is not just a movement or a tool for getting stronger. It is a RESTING POSITION.
It means: when I get tired from standing – I squat and not vice versa.
The squat has benefits for digestion, mobility, strength development and movement capacity and can also lead to a lot of freedom – low gate work, exploration, play.” Ido Portal

Why suffer through 30 days of 30 minutes… and why its important that you dont miss a day in between:

The human body is able to do amazing things. Given enough time, the right nutrition and the right stimuli, you could basically rebuild the whole machine.

Your body posesses cells which build other cells where they are needed and cells that break stuff down if its not needed. In order to reconstruct joints and get to your full range of motion you need to rebuild the joints which means you need to stimulate the right cells with enough intensity for an adequate amount of time. Your bone building cells for example build new stuff in areas where there is either pushing or pulling force working on the structures and cells are broken down where no such forces are. 30 minutes of force working on your hip and ankle joints are enough to get your cells to start to build stuff. 30 days in a row will be enough duration to achieve some remarkable results. Unbroken days will help your body realise that this new position seems to be an important position as well as help to program your mind to use the squat as a resting position from now on, which will help to make those changes permanent, since you will start squatting every day and prevent your cells from going into breaking stuff down again.

Just try it for a few days, you will be surprised how fast your squat will improve! Be easy on youself and really try to squat for a few minutes many times during the day… dont wait and try to.

THE RULES
Spend 30 min a day in a squat for 30 consecutive days.

Rules of thumb:
1. No REST days during the 30 days.
2. Relaxed spine – no need to try to remain erect or with neutral spine. Its a RESTING position.
3. Width between the feet – around shoulder width apart but should be individualized and experimented with – aim for maximal depth and relaxation.
4. How much feet should be turned out or should they be facing forward? Don’t let anyone sell you the idea of ONE perfect position – this should be individualized and experimented with – aim for maximal depth and relaxation.
5. Knee pain? Hip pain? stand up and move around. Resume the squat and work in small short bursts of squatting throughout the day.
6. Footwear? Best – barefoot. Second best – minimal footwear.
7. Keep your heels on the floor if possible. If impossible, try a small heel support until you gain the proper mobility to squat flat foot on the ground.
8. True sign of good squatting? When you get tired from STANDING – you squat and not vise versa! True story!
9. How deep should you squat? There is only one answer – DEEPER.

IN JUST UNDER 10 DAYS… THE CROSSFIT OPEN BEGINS!

IN JUST UNDER 10 DAYS… THE CROSSFIT OPEN BEGINS!

It will be guaranteed chaos, but I wanted to let you know what I was thinking as general scheme of how things should go.

Workouts will be announced around 0400 CET on Fridays. I will have a rough plan before the end of Friday how we will try to tackle it on Saturdays. I’ll send that to Mike to post in two places: on the CFA website and the CFA Facebook (the page, not the group). We will do the Open WODs on Saturdays instead of the normal 1030 class.

Saturdays at 1000 we will begin with an overview of the WOD, review movement standards for the judges, lay out the timeline for heats, and Coach John will talk strategy for WOD success. The goal is to start the first heat no later than 1030. ATHLETES must enter scores before 1700 PST on Mondays (0400 CET on Tuesday). I will then validate them and they will appear in the rankings. I do not enter your score for you, YOU DO.

I’m tracking the following individuals will require a certified judge: Juliane, Marc, Stephenie, Stefan, John, Monte, Jamison, Julie, and Matt S. In lieu of a certified judge, you can videotape your attempt and upload it for verification… this or a certified judge is only required if you believe you may make it to regionals. Everyone else’s judge will be well versed in the movement standards, will judge fairly, and with good sportsmanship. The biggest difference with a certified judge is that they are also liable (along with the athlete) for any intentional or unintentional errors and can be disqualified. If anyone else thinks they will need a certified judge or if you have obtained your judges cert, please let me know.

Some basics:

  • Priority will be to manage heats for those who need certified judges (right now, we know of THREE, possibly FOUR certified judges). If you have a time constraint on a Saturday and need to be late or get in the first heat, I need to know.
  • Judges will be available on Saturdays. It is up to YOU to arrange an alternate time to do the WOD if Saturday doesn’t work. Questions about who can judge you, ask me. If you do your WOD sometime other than Saturdays, I’ll also have to give you some additional instructions for your scoresheet.
  • If you are a Level 1 or are a seasoned Crossfitter, you may be asked to help judge and many of you may be asked to help with things like running the clock, collecting scoresheets, DJ-ing. But because you’re all awesome, I know nobody will have issues with this. I’ll try to have a list of random tasks ready on Friday evenings.
  • By 1000 Saturday, you should have arrived at the box, put your shoes and lucky underwear on, and be somewhat warmed up. We love you all, but we also love our Saturdays, we don’t want to be dicking around until 1700. Box will be open by 0930 for sure. There will be over 25 athletes wanting to show their stuff, we will need to be efficient.
  • If you are taping your workout, it is up to YOU to bring a recording device and appoint someone to run it.

Let me know if you have questions!
My email is aprilverlo@me.com for any of the requested information.
