WHAT?!  There’s no scored component to the workout?!!!  Yes, that’s right- and that’s ok!  With many people wanting to perform their best on Friday for the Open workout we will be doing an “active recovery” session on Thursday.  Although some people perform best taking a full rest day the day prior to competition, many people find they benefit from moving, sweating, getting their blood flowing and their heart rate up a bit as opposed to doing nothing at all.  There will also be time for additional mobility, skill work, etc.  As always, the reps and loads can be altered in this workout to make it more appropriate for what the individual athlete is looking for (too hard, reduce the reps; too easy- increase reps, load, or intensity).  The objective here is to prep your body and mind for success.  The Open is upon us, we’re ready- now let’s have some fun!

The CrossFit Games Open starts THIS WEEK and there’s still time to register!  The CrossFit Open is for ALL CROSSFITTERS and is a great and fun way to compete and be part of the CrossFit community- throwing down on the same workout as hundreds of thousands of people from around the world every week for the next five weeks.  There are RX and scaled divisions, and I encourage everyone to sign up and get ready to have some fun with it!  The workouts get posted on Thursday evening and we do the workouts during regular classes on Fridays.  Each Friday for the next five weeks we will do the Open workouts- typically we will do them in two heats and you will judge and be judged (whether you are officially participating in the Open or not).  Don’t be intimidated or nervous- it’s a fun experience and a great way to push ourselves as a community.  Although we’d love for everyone to sign up for the Open- you can of course come to classes on Fridays even if you aren’t officially registered.  Can’t wait!
