Mayhem Open Prep Program

The Open is coming… In just a couple of months, the CrossFit season will begin with CrossFit Open workout 17.1. Many have a love/hate relationship with the Open. Others mainly just dread each week of torture. The Open and its 5 workouts never fail to make us all go to our darkest recesses of pain and despair with our fitness. To help those participating in the Open prepare, “What’s Rich Doing” is offering “Open Prep.” This Open Prep is intentional programming to prepare athletes to peak their performance for Open workouts 17.1 through 17.5. This Open Prep will include a large focus on very high intensity metcons mimicking the Open. Each week will start out with more overall volume and lifting, but will taper down to prepare for an Open workout or Open-like workout each Friday. This will get each athlete accustomed to what the 5 weeks in the Open will be like.  

Is this for me?

The Open Prep is programmed for anyone who wants to participate in the Open.
It will assist with improving work capacity for metcons while still progressing overall fitness.
It consists of 5-6 days of training each week.
The Open Prep is programmed for those with little or lots of time to train. It is made to accommodate all kinds of athletes. The Open Prep will include a specific order of workouts, so athletes can attack the most important workouts and still see improvements even if they don’t have more than an hour to train. The emphasis or main focus of the workouts will be at the beginning. For those with more time, there is still a substantial volume of workouts. These specially designed programs are all 5-6 days a week and made for any individual looking to have optimal performance for the Open.
