The time is now! It is the last before the ‘Open’ begins and in simple terms marks the time to get your ass to work. We have spent the last 6 months trying to improve on all of the different areas of our wonderful sport, while slowly building up. The hope is that you’re moving better, you’re stronger, and your body is ready for the specific training that is coming in these next few weeks (cycle). Don’t ever forget that your 1RM lifts have much less to do with your success in the ‘open’ than your overall work capacity. We will continue to build strength but It’s time to focus less on improving movements and lifts specifically and more on improving your body’s capacity. Be ready to work hard!
