Open Prep begins…

January 29, 2013

The CrossFit Games Open is just over a month away.  Over the next 6 weeks, recipe I’ll be adding in some the previous the Open WODs to the programming.  Generally, viagra sale we’ll hit 1 or 2 of these a week until the Open hits.

If you are considering competing, generic I would not recommend scaling at all, and if you can, have a friend judge you.  Even if you are not considering competing, I would recommend doing these WODs as close to prescribed as possible – you may surprise yourself.

Take today’s WOD for example: double unders and snatching.  Even if you only have 1 DU, I would recommend doing 1 at a time and getting to the snatches.  The snatch weight is light enough that most athletes can get 75/55 over head, even if that means clean and jerking the weight (the scoring allowed for this variation – I would prefer you snatch, though).  If 75/55 is your best left, STILL I would recommend doing the DU, and getting as many snatches as you can at the prescribed weight.

Scale every other WOD during the week and we’ll get your conditioning dialed in.  But these WODs can be an excellent way to see how fit you are.
