This week at Crossfit Indestri you are going to be Sweating, Running, Lifting and generally cursing my name! Hope you enjoy I know i will :)
Tyson and I will be away this week but we leave you in great hands with Our fantastic coaches and new part Owner Steph McKean. We figured Steph spends so much time in the box and invest so much time in each of you she might as well be an owner. Luckily Steph agreed and now she can’t leave hahahaha! I am excited to be moving forward with Steph, Tyson & Sarah. The future of Indestri is bright and we hope you get everything you need from here and continue to grow with this family!

Indestri Boys Play some Hockey
This past weekend some of Indestri boys hit the Ice to play a little “Hackey” It was a 3 on 3 format with a Goalie organized by Mike Jackson called Collingwood Fours. They had a great time and got to put their fitness and beer drinking abilities to the test :)
Another new face in the box!
We have someone new starting so often now it’s crazy. We have slacked on introducing them here in the blog. We will get back on top of it.
This report came from Coach Todd:
“So Jacob Carr killed it today, got 208 using 65# on the bar and 14# wallball. There was one point he felt he was going to puke but held it together, a true fighter.”
Hello Jacob, there will be other times you will feel as you may puke… Welcome to crossfi Indestri!
TIP OF THE WEEK
History of Squats
The Squat is a natural movement humans have done since they existed. If you pay attention you’ll notice people all over the world Squat, often unconsciously. Quick examples…
– Babies routinely play while sitting in a Squat position, and will Squat to stand up.
– Many races of people often rest in a Squatting position when eating or waiting for the bus.
– Squatting was the natural way to defecate before sitting toilets existed
Squats Build Strength. The Squat is the best exercise for building overall strength. Here’s why:
Squats strengthen your largest, longest, most powerful muscles – glutes, sartorius and soleus.
Squats strengthen your posterior chain muscles – hamstrings, glutes, lower back, calves, etc
Squats strengthen your posterior chain through the longest range of motion (half your length)
Squats require you to balance the weight which works your abs, obliques, shoulders, arms, etc
Squats work your whole body as one piece (NOT in isolation) like you move outside the gym
Squats stress your body with the heaviest weights – the more you lift, the stronger you are
How to Squat
1. Grab the bar with a medium grip. Put your feet directly under the bar, get under it and put it between your traps and rear shoulder muscles (“High Bar vs Low Bar”). Chest up, upper-back tight.
2. Unrack the bar by Squatting up. Take one step back with one leg, one with your other leg. Stand straight with your knees and hips locked for maximum stability. Keep your upper-back tight.
3. Take a big breath, hold it and Squat. Do this by pushing your knees to the side and your hips back and down. Squat until you break parallel – your hip crease must go below the top of your knee.
4. Hold your breath at the bottom. Don’t stop but quickly reverse the movement by driving your hips straight up. Keep your knees out, your chest up and your upper-back tight.
5. Lock your hips and knees at the top. Exhale and rest a second. Then take a big breath, hold it and Squat your next rep. After your fifth rep, rack the weight by stepping forward.
KEYS TO REMEMBER
Spread the floor with your feet
Eyes Up, Head Up, Chest Up
Lock Down your core
Re set each rep
