Affiliate Cup Registration Deadline

Alright CrossFit West peeps, the absolute final deadline to register a team for the Affiliate Cup is the end of Friday. That’s this upcoming Friday, as in two days away. If you want to compete, and it will be a blast, get signed up and registered asap.

Each team needs to pick a captain. The captains’ duties will include picking up t-shirts for their team, attending a rules and standards meeting a couple days before the Cup, perhaps getting the team together for a team workout, basically being the liaison between the organizers and their team. Please choose the captain as soon as you can and let Cliff (cliff@crossfitwest.com) know who it is.

If you aren’t competing, please volunteer for part (or even all, you awesome rockstars) of the comp. We need volunteers in three basic categories: equipment, judging, and miscellaneous. There is a sign up sheet at the front desk. Thank you.

Proprioception

Proprioception, from Latin proprius, meaning “one’s own”, “individual” and perception, is the sense of the relative position of neighbouring parts of the body and strength of effort being employed in movement.–Wikipedia

Proprioception is one of those tricky terms that’s hard to quantify, but you know it when you see it. It’s an understanding of where your body and its appendages are in relation to things around you. Athleticism and proprioception are very similar and intertwined. It’s the dark side of CrossFit’s Ten Attributes of Fitness. The attributes that are hard to measure, test, and train, but are so important for most sports and physical activities. Agility, balance, coordination, accuracy–all neurological in nature–are hallmarks of proprioception. The truly legendary athletes, the Magic Johnsons, Sugar Ray Robinsons, Rickson Gracies, Joe DiMaggios, all were (are) absolute masters of proprioception.
