Friday Night Lights: 2011 CrossFit Games Qualifiers

Luke Kayyem of CrossFit Scottsdale "Courage Games" 4th place

The CrossFit Games are the ultimate test of fitness. It’s a grueling multi-day competition in which the world’s fittest athletes compete in a variety of workouts. What are the workouts? Each year they change, and the details of them are not announced until a couple days before the event. This means that all year long, the athletes are training for a competition whose format is almost completely a mystery.

Today’s workout is a sneak peak of what you can expect as a competitor, but there are more ways that you can participate in this fitness competition.

Kettle bell swings start with the kettle bell on the floor and end when the kettle bell is over head and the athletes ear is visible in front of the arm. The kettle bell does not need to be straight over head. For Russian swings, the ball of the kettle bell must be even with the athlete’s nose. Burpees start and end in the standing position. Athlete can drop anyway they want but must have quads and chest touch the ground and get back to 12 o’clock with a small jump and clap overhead.

Join us in Maui June 7th & 8th for the SICest of the Pacific West

Aloha  I hope this greeting finds you happy, healthy and ready for any excuse to escape the summer heat and come to Maui, Hawaii with all of us at SICFIT Scottsdale. As a young boy growing up in Hawaii I would watch athletes compete everyday. From paddle boarding and canoe to volleyball and surfing, which is why we created the SICest of the Pacific West; a 2 person team, 2 day FUNctional FITness competition on the beaches of Kaanapali, Maui  on June 7th & 8th  at the Sheraton Maui Resort and Spa.
This outdoor competitive FITness event will test all facets of Strength In Conditioning including stand up paddle board, Gymnastics, Olympic Weightlifting, Endurance and Balance, in a FUN inclusive environment. We have 9 different options to choose from including scaled, masters (40+) and RX with any 2 person combinations male/male, female/female, male/female available. In an effort to keep costs down we have negotiated a special rate and have a room block at the Sheraton Resort and Spa for $210 a night discounted down from $300. The price for a team of 2 is $185. If competing is not you’re thing that’s okay too, our 2nd home has been in Maui for 30+ years and I can share with you the best places to eat, surf, shop and swim. We also have a group of non competing judges and volunteers who could always use some more help. So far we have 10 members of SICFIT Scottsdale and 4 staff already set to make the trip but we want more. You can still get a pretty descent flight direct from PHX to OGG for under $600 and if you’re serious about making the trip but are traveling alone we can try to connect you with a roommate for the week. If you have any questions please text me directly at 760.333.0959 .

Mahalo nui loa for your support and allowing us to share our Aloha spirit with you. Me ke aloha pumehana.

Luke and Najla Kayyem
All judges and volunteers will receive a Swag Bag of Gear for working both days.
We have a ton of sponsorship opportunities if you or anyone you know is interested in getting a booth and advertising on our website. Email



How To: Knees-2-Elbows

Strength in Conditioning for Saturday, April 12, 2014

When it comes to Knees-to-Elbows, its all in the rhythm baby! A prerequisite to stringing several of these movements together is the kip. Practice just kipping for a few minutes, really emphasizing swinging your chest forward and legs back in the front, and then chest back and legs forward on the way back. Once you have warmed up your kip, Knees-to-Elbows becomes just a more emphasized expression of this same movement. Use your core strength to snap your knees up to your elbows as you actively press the bar down using the muscles in your upper back. As soon as your knees make contact with your elbows, swing your legs down and back behind the plane of the bar to force your body into your kip once again. Often times the second Knees-to-Elbow is the most difficult one to string together, but fight for it and by the 3rd or 4th rep you may find your rhythm easily.
