Today is a scheduled rest/recovery day, but don’t worry! We are open and running on our normal schedule. In today’s CrossFit group classes, you’ll have the option of doing either yesterday or tomorrow’s programming, which can be found in the comments section of today and every Rest Day’s post.
Upcoming Programming Cycle Template
Training Cycle Dates: M 2/4/19 – Su 3/24/19
Goals: To stay fresh through the CrossFit Open, which runs from February 21st through March 24th. We’ll program regular metcons and strength/skill work with a bias toward the movements and formats that are typically seen in the Open. This mesocycle (the 7 weeks) will run on a 3 day microcycle, a departure from the 5 day microcycle we’ve run for some time now. The shorter microcycle will allow for more frequent exposure to movements as a focus of the day, and give folks who come on set days to fewer than 5 CrossFit classes in a week more variance in their training. It will still “feel” pretty similar to recent cycles, the main difference being that Wednesdays won’t always be Squats, and Thursday and Sunday won’t always be Olympic lifts. Saturday will still be Wild-And-Crazy-WOD day, especially when the Open starts!
Register for the Open!
By the time this post goes up, we’ll be just 16 days away from the announcement of Open Workout 19.1. Go here to register! And please take a minute to fill out this short survey, so we know if you’re interested in participating in our Intramural Team Competition!
There are so many good reasons to register, and we tried to convey some of those reasons on the blog last week. But today we thought we’d throw it over to you guys to help us recruit more competitors. So…
Have you participated in the Open in the past, or do you plan to this year? Tell everyone about your experience! Why did you do it, and what did you learn? Why did you sign up this year?
