Preparing Athletes for the Opens 1-8-14 (Audio Only)
from OptimumPerformanceTraining PRO 1 day ago NOT YET RATED
It’s crunch time. The dates are set and with less than 8 weeks before the first workout James discusses key training considerations for the weeks leading up to and during the 5-week sustained schedule of the 2014 CrossFit Open. What should the volume and intensity of training look like? When do you implement testers? How do you adjust the training for a fast vs. slow adapting athlete? Should the athlete repeat a workout? If Regionals are a realistic expectation how do you get the athlete through the Open without over-training?
