Going back to the times we’ve all watched the YouTube videos and tried to master a skill through a screen the night before we do an open WOD. Open gym is the time to work on these skills. Make an effort to attend 4 open gyms a month. Write down 8 things you need to work on and 4 exercises you enjoy but would love to be a little bit more efficient or stronger in. In addition, write down the 3 time frames you hate the most in CrossFit. This can be, but is not limited to: AMRAP’s, For Time, EMOM’s or Tabata. Always think of the time frame you hate the most, think short (1-7 minutes), Medium (7-15 minutes), or long (16+ minutes). Start generating workouts for yourself, show the coach your plan and get their feedback and set attainable goals during these open gym sessions. It’s not fun or beneficial to go in the gym and row 500M, act like you’re rolling out, flail on the rings, do 20 sit ups and grab a protein drink. Have a plan, or at least a template, and ask a coach for guidance. Dedicate 1 day a week to this and you’ll slowly start to see that your weaknesses aren’t so weak anymore.
