Are You Ready?

73 year old Jacinto Bonilla
CrossFit Games Masters competitor.

A great reminder from the folks at CrossFit Central, as we get ready for the first Open WOD (workout is announced Thursday at 5:00 pm, Friday it’s the gym workout, and Saturday its the competition with judges/score sheets and more – see here for more details). There is STILL time to register!


The first Open workout will be released in 1 day. This will be the first step of many on your way to the CrossFit Games. Between now and then you will have to prove yourself in many ways and in various settings. If you plan on competing as an individual, you will need a team that will support you and take care of you. Training partners, a coach, and body workers are just the start.

What should you be thinking about 1 day out from the Open? Just a couple of things that I would be thinking about:

How do I feel today? What do I need to do to stay healthy and strong for the 5 weeks of the Open, while still training hard enough to make the gains I need to compete at Regionals?

What does your pre-training, intra-training and post-training fuel look like?

How do you manage pain in a training session? How do you manage pain after a training session? AKA: What do your recovery practices look like?

What supplements do you take for health, and what supplements do you take for performance?

Do you have all the equipment you will need to compete? (Shoes, knee sleeves, weight belt, wrist wraps and a jump rope are some of the more popular items people can and do use).

The season is long – you will have to manage yourself and your training partners for the duration. Treat yourself and your team like professionals, and you’ll get professional results.
