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??"
