"CrossFit Testers/Preparation for CrossFit Opens"(2.6.2014)

*Preparation for Opens + Thursday Workouts*

The CrossFit Opens are close to three weeks away from starting for the fourth annual CrossFit Season. Throughout the off-seaon we focus on strength, assistance exercises, and staying healthy throughout the year. We are currently in a new phase of training as I call the Prepatory Phase for the CrossFit Opens. For the last three weeks on Thursday’s, we have been doing simulation workouts that would emulate a CrossFit Opens Style Workout. I encourage all who are participating in the CrossFit Opens to attend these workouts for the few weeks, and also for future reference during the Prepatory Phase. We focus solely on what ¬†movements ¬†could be placed during the CrossFit Opens ranging from moderate high rep olympic lifting, high skill gymnastics, and aerobic testers in the duration of 10 to 18 minutes. Please take this into consideration into your training over the next few week, and focus on moving ONWARD!
