We’ve just completed the 2018 CrossFit Open…what a wild 5-weeks it has been.
First off…..CONGRATULATIONS to all of you. Everyone pushed themselves to be that little bit better, to get that extra rep, and to be held accountable for the standards. The energy and excitement in the gym was unmatchable. And the extraordinary camaraderie was a thing of beauty.
But now what?!?
Well, this is where you take advantage of what makes CrossFit True unique, the coaching.
As you may have realized, the Open has a way of highlighting weaknesses. Most of us come out of the Open with a laundry list of things we want to improve upon; Olympic lifting, overall strength, gymnastic skill, aerobic capacity, etc. But what do you do with all those new goals?
You talk with a coach. You pick our brains. And we come up with an actionable plan.
This maybe scheduling a 1-on-1 skill session with a coach to pinpoint what changes would create the best results for you. Our 1-on-1 skill sessions have produced amazing results getting our athletes better rowing technique (which leads to less energy expenditure with faster times), working on proficiency in gymnastic skills for better pull-ups, muscle-ups, & handstands, and achieving better movement patterns in the Olympic lifts to produce greater power.
Your plan maybe as simple as including short 5-10 minute skill, strength, and mobility work before or after class. This will give you a bit more exposure to the movements you want to improve without taking away from your normal work in class.
Perhaps your plan isn’t so much about what you are doing inside the gym, but what is taking place outside the gym. Nutrition is key to performance. Fueling your body properly will give you the energy you need to execute the workouts. The foods you eat have a direct correlation to your body composition whether you are trying to gain strength, lose fat, or just look good for summer. Our 1-on-1 nutrition coaching can help you learn how to fuel your body, be held accountable, and gain results.
So, what do you want to improve upon? Comment below and let us know!
