The last CrossFit Open Games of 2015 is a little cracker. Will definitely get the heart pumping! Good luck everyone!
With the end of the Open Games upon us, I am looking forward to another year/season of top training. You all put a lot of trust in me to Program effective workouts. I think this year we ALL have excelled in a number of areas (e.g. cardio and endurance capacity). There are some areas however that need some more work (e.g strength, butterfly chest-to-bars, snatch and clean/jerk, flexibility, nutrition, recovery). Commencing early next week we will be doing workouts which will lift our strength and mobility base to the next level. For a while you will begin to "feel" your "fitness" drop. But you will have to remember that CrossFit's definition of fitness covers 10 domains - cardio, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, agility, balance, coordination and accuracy. It's not possible to improve all these domains of fitness at once; but by working on them all - they will improve over time.
Not everyone understands/accepts/appreciates this wider definition of fitness. I once heard from fat belly man who couldn't front squat and shoulder press 40kgs - "I need to do some cardio...that's my weakness." Most people believe that being fit means being able to run an ultra-marathon. The ability to run an ultra-marathon is only one domain of fitness.
The ten CrossFit domains of fitness are linked to each other. If the fat-belly man could train himself to front squat and press 100kgs - he would find that his ability to workout through a wod like Fran, which requires a 40kg thruster - would assist him in losing his belly fat a lot faster.
Have a great weekend and see you all on Monday!
