The Big Nasti – January 30th
CrossFit Protocol will be hosting a very unique event to kick off the 2016 competition calendar. It’s called the North Alabama Supertotal Team Invitational, or The Big NASTI. This event will combine Powerlifting and Olympic Weightlifting into one big team ladder event. Teams of five men and five women will try to total as much weight as possible in five different lifts: snatch, clean & jerk, bench press, deadlift, and squat. Only seven teams get to compete in this event and CrossFit Impulse is one of them! Each lift will be performed by a different athlete who cannot compete in any other lifts. You only get to do one lift–that’s why the team has five men and five women. You may be thinking, “I squat OK. But I don’t squat as much as Bob or Harry, so the team doesn’t need me.” But what if Bob and Harry are doing different lifts? Then that really does mean you should squat for us! So here’s what I need you to do; you’ll find a signup sheet on the counter at the gym. If you’re even remotely interested–if this sounds like fun–don’t worry about your capability, just sign up and let us worry about who will do each lift. The signup sheet includes space for you to write your PR in each lift. At the end of the month we’ll use the signup sheet to compose the team and contact everyone who showed interest to let you know the roster. Sign up today and let’s start preparing for this awesome event! – Jeff
