Experienced CrossFitter Looking To Take It To The Next Level?

After being open for nearly 4 years now what we have found at Route 1 is that at a certain point (usually after 18 months of consistent attendance of our CrossFit Classes) there comes a point where people hit a plateau in terms of progress and look to add more volume to their training. This isn't everyone, CrossFit is a great way to achieve a high level of fitness and many people may never want or desire to step out of the group training environment. However for some people whether it be a desire to compete or just to achieve more balance in their own fitness there comes a point where they want to add more volume to progress even further.

Building An Engine For The Open

Building An Engine For The Open

It's that time of the year again when the CrossFit Open is upon us and I was asked by one of our members the other day "how can I build my engine to improve my performance at the open?" My short answer to this is "for this year... you can't!" It takes a long time to build and develop a solid aerobic base and establish an understanding of your own energy systems and thresholds... I would compare this to saying "I want to be able to back squat 150kg next week my current Squat is 50kg... Can you help me out??"
