The idea here today is to pick a pace that you can hold. Even if it’s slow, we are looking for two sets of 7 minutes of non-stop work. Think about “pacing” yourself rather than having short bursts of energy followed by walking around and resting. Your number one priority is CONSTANT MOVEMENT.


How are you preparing for the CrossFit Games Open this year?

Do you know where your REDLINE is?
“Find the area where you suck, and make it suck less,” says John McBrien of CrossFit Endurance. Stamina is one of the parameters of CrossFit that we train for and one we, as crossfitters, tend to neglect the most. That said, with the Open right around the corner, here is a great article that you all should keep in mind. This is not just for those planning on competing this year, but also for those wondering why we train the way we do!

Keep in mind these few notes:
The average crossfitter has a high “engine” but low “gas tank,” while the average endurance athlete has a, you guessed it, high “gas tank” but low “engine.” As crossfitters we want to bridge that gap! Make stamina one of those parameters where you suck less.

PACE YOURSELF
1. Know where your REDLINE is!
2. Play your game
3. Minimize rest vs. Maximizing Reps
4. Know Thyself
