Game Day-CrossFit Scottsdale Kids Style

CrossFit Kids provides more than just a workout, it builds teamwork, responsibility, accountability, sportsmanship and much more. Most of our CrossFit Kids classes end with a game.  We have fun but it is also an integral part in the education that CrossFit Kids provides.  Games require rules to be followed which builds listening skills, tasks to be completed which builds responsibility,  and someone must win or lose and we always encourage and build healthy competative spirit and good sportsmanship.  CrossFit give such a broad spectrum of exercises and movements that some we are good at right off the bat and others take months to learn.  The attitude that I working on being good at something permeates every class and seeing others perform these movements helps us set goals for ourselves.  Today is dedicated to the game and all it offers our CrossFit Kids.

Rx Challenge Finals

So 10 athletes set out to find how they stack up against the competition both within our school and the entire CrossFit community by competing in CrossFit Scottsdale’s 1st Rx Challenge.  The Unknown and Unknowable were the themes throughout the 3 week challenge.  Week 1, two “Girl” WODs, “Elizabeth” followed by “Annie”.  WOD 2 wasn’t announced until everyone had finished WOD one and I know those double unders felt totally different after the squat cleans and ring dips.  Week 2, CrossFit Games style with 2 brand new WODs and a little head to head action.  Think shoulders to overhead ladder.  Week 3, back to CrossFit “Girl” and Leaderboard WODs with a surprise floater.  All althetes pushed themselves to new heights whether it was wining their heat, getting on the top of the leaderboard or setting their own new PR.  Everyone went away winning and knowing exactly where their strengths and weaknesses during competition lie.  Congratulations to all of you and continue to live life Rx’d!

Shoulders to Overhead 95#/65#
Challengers face head to head with a partner starting with the bar in the rack position.  Judge calls “1” partner one does one rep, the other partner does 1 rep right after partner one is done.  After all participants have finished their one rep the judge calls “2”.  Partner one does 2 reps, partner two does 2 reps right after partner one finishes.  After all participants have finished, the judge calls “3”.  That continues until the rep cannot be completed and the bar comes out of the rack position.  BAR MUST REST IN THE RACK POSITION AND YOU MAY NOT PUT THE BAR DOWN.  Count total reps.
