We had a lot of people do well in the Open this year!
I mean finishing in some awesome spots, like Amy and Lou finishing in 1st place! I’ll have all the other spots by the end of the week.
A bunch of people did the Open scaled this year and said it was much better in many ways. First was that all the workouts were awesome because they were able to keep going without having to stop because the weight is too heavy or the movement is too hard to accomplish.
The Scaled workouts where much more intense because they were not crippling to everyone therefore making the workouts much more intense than doing something that’s too hard to do all together.
All your workouts should be like this, you’re here to get more fit not to end up in a stretcher, you have to know your limits and stay within them.
Coaches forcing there members too do Open wods or any Wods Rx when the workouts are obviously to difficult for them is a big problem in Crossfit. This is why there is so much injury and because of this now when you ask your friends to try Crossfit they say “I don’t wanna get hurt”.
Crossfit is not intended to Kill anyone and unfortunately some coaches have this mentality.
