Here we go! You're less than a week away from 17.1. Let's talk about what the programming will look like over the next 5 weeks.
First of all, you train and even compete through soreness all year long. I suggest you let go of the notion that you need to feel perfect every weekend before doing the Open WOD. You can compete yourself out of shape. The goal is to end the Open with the highest possible ranking while still improving your fitness. So that said, we are going to train through the Open. Yes, the volume will be lower on weekends, but outside of that, your training will be fairly normal.
I'm a big fan of creating training templates. I set goals for a specific time period and set templates that hold me accountable to attacking those goals. Below I have outlined exactly what you can expect for the next 5 weeks:
Open WOD repeat or Hinshaw Track Intervals
Low Impact Mechanix or Rowing Intervals
*Posted alongside will be a specific warm-up and some strategy tips
There you have it. Simple as can be.
You have trained hard for this and you are ready. I'm excited to see how everyone has improved! Let's have some fun!
