The 2014 Open Prep Guide

With the 2014 CrossFit Open just weeks away, many of you are likely in one of two situations:

  1. Deciding whether or not to enter the Open
  2. Wondering how to best prepare for the five unknown WODs
Either way, we’ve got your back. If you are looking for some quick tips to work off check out the infographic below. If you want to study a bit further, check out the complete history of the Opens at the bottom of the page.
In order to determine if it’s in your best interest to register for this Open, take some time and study the past 16 WODs featured in the last three Open’s. If you feel confident than you can complete at least 80% of these, you are good to go! If you’re trying to prepare, spend some time familiarizing yourself with the types of WODs you are likely to encounter at the end of February. Below are some general observations:

  • Your normal pull-ups are no good here. In the Opens chest to bar (C2B) is the standard
  • There has been a Thruster/C2B Pull-up WOD in all three opens
  • Each Open has repeated a WOD from the previous Open (which of the 4 from 2013 might we see?)
  • Ascending rounds (3,6,9,12…) have been featured in every Open
  • Practice your Karen…150 wall balls have been in the last two Opens
