The CrossFit Games Open season has been announced! I have said it before, but if you like CrossFit even a little bit, the Open is “our season.” The WODs are usually great and at no other time in the year is the pool of competition so large.
There are a few key changes this year, but none of it really matters. What matters? Being as fit as possible.
Starting in January, I will begin programming extra work for athletes to prepare for the Open. Here’s the bottom line: the extra work will be optional, but relatively uniform. Everyone that chooses to do the extra prep work will being doing basically the same stuff. Barbell cycling will be done in CrossFit classes – extra work will consist of working on the body weight/conditioning stuff that will have to be on point if you want to maximize your scores. Think a lot of EMOMs with Burpees, Box Jumps, Doubleunders, Toes to Bar, Chest to Bar, Wall Ball and Muscle Up.
I will release more details in the coming weeks.
