#3211 – Open Prep Begins Today

By: 0

Friday 1/4/19

The CrossFit Open

The Capacity Test is a great way to measure improvement because it has several components; cardio (rowing), body weight (pull ups) and strength (back squats & push press).
We will test these movements today and then spent the next six weeks working on the things we are most likely to see in the Open. Then we will re-test these to measure your improvement.

Open Prep is just more CrossFit, but with an emphasis on the specific things we are most likely to see in the Open! Open Kicks off February 22nd!
