THE CROSSFIT OPEN: HOW TO TACKLE THE UNKNOWN AND COME OUT ON TOP

The CrossFit Open is a highly anticipated event in the CrossFit community that provides an opportunity for athletes of all levels to showcase their fitness and compete against each other. With the 2023 season now underway, it is crucial for those who plan on participating to properly prepare themselves for this competition. This means not only getting physically fit but also mentally preparing for the challenges that come with competition.

Proper preparation for the Open requires setting achievable goals, consistently training, and taking care of your body to prevent injury. It’s also important to focus on your nutrition and hydration, as this will directly impact your performance during the competition. Additionally, having a positive mindset and being mentally ready to handle the pressure of competing in front of friends, family, and the entire CrossFit community will help you perform at your best.

In short, the CrossFit Open is a challenging but rewarding competition that requires both physical and mental preparation. By following these tips, MVMT CrossFit members can approach the Open with confidence and give their best performance.

Build a Strong Foundation before the CrossFit Open

It is important for a house to have a strong foundation, and to be able to withstand the harsh elements, the same applies to you. Before you can tackle the Open workouts, it’s important to have a solid foundation of fitness and you can achieve this by building strength in your core, upper body, and lower body, as well as developing good technique in foundational movements like squats, deadlifts, and presses.

Practice the CrossFit Movements

The Open workouts often include a mix of known and unknown movements, so it’s important to be familiar with as many exercises as possible. If you are unsure of all the different exercises go and study the previous year’s Open workouts and learn from them. Practice different variations of movements and focus on perfecting your form.

MVMT CrossFit has a class with Coach Cathy, which focuses various skills to get you comfortable with various movements in preparation for the CrossFit Open. 

Train with Intensity

The Open workouts are designed to be challenging and test your limits, so you’ll need to be comfortable working at high-intensity levels. Incorporate high-intensity interval training (HIIT) and other intense workouts into your training plan. Push yourself because your body can do more than your mind thinks it can.

Work on your Weaknesses

The Open will likely test your weaknesses, so it’s important to identify and address them in your training and to make sure you can do the basic movements. If you struggle with a particular movement or exercise, make it a focus of your training and work to improve it. It’s all about practice and putting in the effort. 

Be Prepared for the CrossFit Open

Be ready for anything by having the right equipment and clothing. Make sure you have the right shoes, clothing, and gear for the workout, and have a plan for how you’ll fuel your body during the competition.

Get Enough Rest and Recovery

Train hard, but make sure you’re also allowing your body enough time to recover. Many athletes make the mistake of pushing themselves over the limit and threatening their bodies with potential injuries. Prioritise your sleep, nutrition, and rest days to help you perform your best during the Open.

 

In conclusion, the CrossFit Open is not just a physical challenge, but a mental one as well. While the pressure of competing can be overwhelming, a positive mindset can make all the difference. By following these tips, MVMT CrossFit Gym members can approach the Open with confidence and give their best performance. Remember, a strong mindset can help you overcome any obstacles and achieve your goals. So, let’s embrace the challenge and show the world what we’re capable of!
