Open Prep Check List:

Competition season is finally here! For most of us this is just another workout of the day, it’s a rallying point for our community and a fun time to come out and support our friends.  For others this is a test to see where we rank up among friends at CFNE or other local boxes.  For a few this becomes a five week competition battling with every last bit of grit and passion we have in the tank to get to the next stage, and for our newer members it’s a time to see what makes CFNE the best place on earth.

Whether your looking to just have fun, compete and test yourself, or qualify for regional’s and masters, it all starts now… It doesn’t matter what goals you may have or whether you’re a new members throwing your hat in the ring or a Games athlete, there’s a few things we should all be doing leading up to the Open.

Often times we talk about the “Circle of Concern” and controlling the things that we can and ignoring the things we cant (time, other athletes scores, judges, etc.) However, there’s a few tools we want to make sure we have in our toolbox when we begin to prep for an Open workout and leave it all out there.
