Veterans Day Hero WOD or Redo Open 20.5 if desired Monday 11/11/19

Veterans Day has been observed since 1954 by the U.S. and its origins date back to Armistice Day 1918, which marked the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front in WWI. Veterans Day preserves the historical significance of the 11/11/1918, but also focuses attention on the important purpose of Veterans Day: A celebration to honor America’s veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good. WOD for Warriors is held yearly on the 11th month, 11th day and 11th hour to celebrate the service of all U.S. military Veterans in a meaningful way within their own communities. The significance of the repetitions in this workout can be seen in the layout where the 11 min AMRAP, 11 power cleans and 11 push jerks represent the 11th month, 11th day and 11th hour while the 19 box overs and 18 pull ups represent the year 1918, Armistice Day.

GOAT Day and W.O.D. Thursday 11/7/19

DAILY MINDSET “Life is change. Growth is optional. Choose wisely.” Change is not good, nor bad. It is life. Change is a constant in our lives, despite that statement being somewhat of a paradox. It’s part of our universe, and it’s shared from the most successful, to the struggling. What does separate the successful to the struggling however, is the perception to the change. How we interpret the events, and how we take the experience, for the better. We can choose to walk away from everything better, regardless of how seemingly detrimental the event is at the time. We just have to look for it. We choose to grow. “Goat Day” On the Minute x 20: Odd Minutes: Movement 1 Even Minutes: Movement 2 “Goat” is CrossFit slang for a movement that challenges us. Examples: Double-Unders, Pull-ups, Overhead Squats, Handstand Push-ups. These are the best days to turn perceived weaknesses into strengths. No better way to do that than today. We don’t improve our technique 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. 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. When we couple “training” with “practice” throughout the week in the right doses, we set ourselves on the fast track to results. Choose two “Goats”...

DAILY MINDSET “To succeed in life, you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone and a funnybone.” – Reba McEntire Wishbone – The growth-mindset that sees everything as an opportunity. To wear the lens of a true optimist… not a delusional “the world is amazing” outlook, but instead the singular focus: what can I learn from this? Backbone – The unbreakable will to give our best, regardless of the circumstances. To put ego and pride aside, and to live with authenticity. Every day. Funnybone – The attitude of gratitude for this incredible lifestyle we get to live. To see the humors in life, and to cherish the small things that all too often go unnoticed.

W.O.D. and Endurance Tuesday 11/5/19

Welcome our newest coach, Jennifer Rawls! “Alright, a little bit about me. My name is Jennifer, but you can call me Jenn, or Jen, or Twinkle. I’ve been living in Missouri since 2012 with my girl, Tess and our two dogs. I grew up in Alabama, and back in those days I was more into dance classes and the colorguard. Life led me to Virginia where I learned to surf. I started to go to a gym sporadically to help with surfing, but it was unstructured, random, and without any actual goals. In 2011, I joined the U.S. Army Reserves as an Aircraft Powertrain Repairer. Basically, I can work on all of the Army helicopter rotor heads and do some important, special inspections. In 2014, I was at an Army school with an instructor that was a Master Fitness Trainer. I thought that would be so cool do get certified in, but I was nowhere close to achieving the pre-requisites for that. A few months later, I was deployed to Kuwait and my journey into fitness really began. While overseas, I taught myself all of the major lifts by reading Starting Strength. A Soldier friend tried to introduce me to Crossfit, but I resisted her attempts at the time. It was a year after I came home that I volunteered to do a team Crossfit competition with Tess. After that, I joined a Crossfit gym. Two years later, in 2018, I became an Army Master Fitness Trainer and my life...

DAILY MINDSET “Everyone makes mistakes. Not everyone owns them.” Learning starts with ownership. Recognizing that we can do this better. No one is infallible. We will all make mistakes. And we will all be part of mistakes that involve a host of other people and multiple moving parts. But even there, even when it’s easiest to blame the situation or another… let’s look inward. To ask ourselves the simple question – “What could I have done better?” The first step is purely identifying all of the possible things we simply could do differently. Not yet what we will actually do, as that convulutes the process. The pitfall is to think of what others could do, but...

W.O.D.Saturday 11/2/19

ATHLETE SPOTLIGHT FOR OCTOBER! Name: Kyle Snodgrass Hometown: Clinton, MO Age: 34 When did you first start training at CrossFit Republic and what brought you to CFR? We moved to Republic from Ozark in May of 2018. I had been training at CrossFit 417 for 3 years prior and started at CFR right away. Tell us about your sports & fitness background: I played everything I could growing up. Baseball, basketball, football, soccer, tennis and I wrestled. I started lifting weights around 13 and really took to it. I concentrated on power lifting and football through high school. I got several offers from smaller schools, but opted for the big city of Springfield. How did you first get exposed to CrossFit? I had been interested in CrossFit for awhile, but was hesitant to try. By the time I was 29 I was so out of shape I was desperate. What I was doing on my own wasn’t working. My wife had several friends that did CrossFit and they raved about it. I sucked it up and gave it a shot. What was your first workout and how did it go? Don’t remember exactly, but I know it had legless rope climbs. I remember being asked by another member if I was going to try the rope climbs. I told him it was my first day, but secretly thought to myself “of course I am. What’s the big deal?” I still remember jumping up and grabbing that rope and reality hitting...
