5 Tips To Help You Prepare For The 2019 Open
Tip #1 | Start Fueling Your Body The Right Way Your nutrition needs more attention as you prepare to go into 5 weeks of Open Workouts.
Not only will nutrition play an important role in fueling your performance but it will aid in recovery. If you haven't already started to focus a little more on food, like in the challenge right now, make sure that you start now as we only have about 3 more weeks until the first open workout.

Tip #2 | Stay Consistent With Your Training
Too often we see athletes make the mistake of trying to do too much leading up to the open.
They try to fit in two a days, overload their routine with more conditioning, more weights, more oly lifting, more workouts etc.
This is a quick way to injury and getting burnt out.
Rather than going into overdrive, it's important to trust the process of building up the necessary volume and practice through consistently going to your 4-5 classes a week.
More isn't always better.
And with preparation we suggest that you bring more attention and detail to each and every workout.
Tip #3 | Build Habits For Rest And Recovery
With an Open Workout each week for the next 5 weeks, rest and recovery climbs high on the list of priorities.
Not only will it help you moving well and pain free, it will aid in the recovery necessary to keep grinding forward.
If you haven't developed a regular mobility routine into your training, I highly suggest you start incorporating a 10-40 minute routine to help supplement training.
Identify the strategies and areas of rest/recovery that need your attention including:
✅ Rest/Active Recovery
Tip #4 | Identify Weaknesses and Strengths
We touched base on how staying consistent with your training is going to be the most effective approach to the Open.
But if you already have the consistency, take some time to identify your strengths and weaknesses.
This can give you areas of training for you to focus on when you see it come up in daily WODS and things to work on before or after classes.
Understanding your fitness strengths and weaknesses can also help you strategize and game plan more effectively once Open workouts are announced.
Tip #5 | Game Plan With A Coach
Strategy and a game plan can play an important role in any workout.
In the same way your Reign Fitness Coaches help you with prep for daily WODS, reach out to them to help you strategize for Open workouts.
Not only can they break the workouts down, they know you as an athlete very well (Both strengths and weaknesses) and can best help you prepare to do you best and have fun.
