The CrossFit Open is upon us!! And although it may be VERY different this year given that only the top individuals in the WORLD will be qualifying for the CF Games, many of us still put a lot of weight on the Open and it is a time of high stress!
So you may be wondering some things:
Should I be changing my nutrition at all leading up the Open?
What should I be doing the day before the workout?
I usually workout in the evening, but now I’m doing the Open at 10 am – what should I do?!?
First of all, take a deep breath! Then CF Open is meant to be FUN. It is a time to get together with your community, compete against YOURSELF (no one else), and see what you’re made of. Like I said, unless you are the top of the top in the world – the Open should not be THAT stressful.
So some things to think about when focusing on your nutrition during the Open –
Will you be training less than normal?
A lot of times, the week leading up...
