This week we got to test strength! As a box we were excited for this workout and theorized our athletes would perform well. It's worth noting that 14.3 required relatively low skill as compared to 14.2. Hence, we figured nothing would stand in the way of more great performances.
14.2 was a tough workout. Very skill oriented. It was fun to see something highly technical in the second workout of the 2014 CrossFit Open.
I just came back from the 2013 Games, where our very own Joy Bruening took 3rd in the 50-54 Masters competition. It was a tremendous weekend and I'll have more to say about it in a few days, but I wanted to take a few minutes to talk about something that I see affecting brand new beginners to Games athletes
With the games about 43 days away, we're ramping up our training volume (and yes, the music is going up too) to peak for the 2013 Open. I wanted to take today's post to talk more about peaking and volume.
