Staying on the subject of the 2017 CrossFit Games Open we know that each of you found something you sucked at- not necessarily movement, but maybe preparation (nutrition, sleep) or consistent training (are you cherry-picking workouts? hitting the intended stimulus) are also big factors into your performance this year. Holding onto standards and actually practicing them (I’m talking to you taped-wall-HSPU folk) throughout the year is something you KNOW you need to do, but don’t, then throw a fit when they show up. Same with rowers. Same with double unders. Same with thrusters.

Fortunately we have a full year until it shows up again. Be a more intelligent athlete and game plan! We’ll be providing you some avenues in the coming weeks. Keep your eyes here for details.

How many of you did the CrossFit Online Judges Course this year? Yes, we know it’s no longer required for many people unless your goal is to judge at the Regional (or higher) level.

The reason I ask that so many people take it is because it proves your training correct. It describes your CrossFit movement knowledge base and understanding the importance of standards. For many it improves their technique, or at least becomes a tool to help realize the mistakes made along with way.
