2015 Open Prep Guide

It’s that time of year again.

With the first WOD of the 2015 CrossFit Opens dropping in exactly two weeks we’re taking a look back at the past Opens to see what insights they can give us into what we might see this year.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Although this year provides a new wrinkle with the scaled division, there are plenty of worthwhile lessons we can learn:

  • The days of the AMRAP only Opens are likely over. While all of the 16 WODs from the first 3 opens were AMRAP format, last year only 3 out of 5 were traditional AMRAP style (remember 14.5? of course you do)
  • Castro has settled into the movements he sees as most fundamental to CrossFit. If you have weaknesses in your snatch, muscle up, C2B pull up, DU, T2B, box jump, wall ball, thruster, or burpees you have two weeks to prepare. Rest assured these are all showing up at some point
  • CrossFit loves to test and retest to give athletes a snapshot of their improvement, so you can expect at least one WOD from a previous open to make an appearance

Even with 4 years of precedent there are sure to be some surprises, and that’s part of what makes it so much fun. Whether this is your first Opens or you’re a veteran, get pumped for the CrossFit event of the year!

and hope we don’t see 14.5 again…
