I LOVE Friday! It means that the weekend is here and we’ve got all kinds of fun stuff going on as the CrossFit Open Competition is in full swing.

17.3 was announced last night, and I must say, it’s quite the programming. A blend of time and task based workout, again, they test similar skills in back to back weeks with the Chest To Bar Pull Ups and both the Toes To Bar and Bar Muscle Ups.

You probably noticed, again, that it’s very similar to the programming you have seen at WildFire CrossFit this week. In fact, Coach Damian has done an incredible job at preparing us for the open since before it began. This week, it looks like he has a direct line to The Director of the Games, Dave Castro himself!

I think it’s safe to say that Coach Damian’s programming is on point.

If you are doing the Open over the weekend and want to get into class today, you have a few options. First off, be sure to take it easy. These exercises are designed to fatigue a person quickly and recovery takes time. So, go ahead and practice, just be smart about it. Today is a great day to work on some strict Pull Ups, mobility, and preparing a game plan to attack this WOD.

Because we spent so much time on the Squat Snatch on Wednesday, and we did a lot of leg work this week, you are going to have some options as you get into the workout.

So today, get a little taste of the half way point WOD of the Open, and HAVE SOME FUN!!

Be sure to log into the Schedule HERE to sign up for your Open Time.

Also, because of the weight change in 17.3, we could REALLY use some extra help with this workout in addition to judging. If you are available to help out, please sign up as a judge so we know.   THANKS!!!!!
