*Note: I will be programming in the open workouts for Crossfitters that are interested in training for the games. The open workout will always come after a day of rest, and it is important to go into each workout with a plan/strategy. This first workout is a straight up "put out" session; therefore not much strategy is needed other than turn off your head, ignore the pain and realize that in 7 minutes you will still be alive and well (probably not standing vertical though). With that said, what I had my athletes do last year when the workouts were announced were complete the WOD at 60-70% to get a game plan, then hit it at 100% 1-2 days later. I'm not sure yet if I'll program a 70% effort for a games open WODs on this site, so if I do not, then it is up to you to do that on your own. If you guys/girls would like me to do that then let me know and I'll make it happen. Lastly, we do not want to be doing the open workouts at 100% 3-4 times in a week. That is a sure fire way to get burnt out and over trained. Be smart about it and go all out the first time.
