    Not seeing the 3/21 Open WODs on ZP, and there are 3/23 Open WODs, which seems to contradict the above, which says 3/23’s not created yet. :?

  • ZenPlanner?

    Same–don’t see any Thursday WODs.

    I am also still not seeing Open WODs for this Thursday, as a heads up. Thanks!

    Still need more open classes! Please offer more. An open class can also be a wod class, but not vice versa. All Thursday classes should be the open wod! I think this would take alot of demand out of the system. Case and point, I want to do the open wod on Thursday, but all classes that I can make are full. I spent 2 hours last Saturday trying to get into an open wod class by hanging out at the like 28th street location because all of those classes were full. I finally got squeezed into a class last minute.

      For people who are participating in the Open, we have an obligation not to treat these as just another set of WOD’s. We are required to judge these as accurately as possible, and the consequences for affiliates who do not uphold standards can be severe. For example, see this article:

      http://games.crossfit.com/article/golden-workout-rejected

      For this reason, we decided that we would run no more than one Open WOD at any given time and that we would limit these WOD’s to a maximum of 12 people. This means that people may not be able to do the Open any time they want.

      However, we do have more than enough slots available, provided people are flexible. As of noon today, we have 36 slots available on Thursday, with only the 7:00 AM, 6:30 PM, and 7:30 PM WOD’s closed. On Friday, we have 9 slots open, and on Saturday, we have 44 slots available.

    Beginner strategy for 13.3:

    We have a few camps for this workout. Decide where you fall this year, then have fun!

    I want to do as many wall balls as possible in 12 minutes… Great! Have a game plan. How many wallballs do you want to complete in each minute? Your judge can holler out 1/2 and full minutes at you to stay on pace. Focus on moving as well as possible (use your legs to get the ball overhead), and don’t get sloppy when you get tired- that only makes things worse. Never miss a rep, never fail- it’s too demoralizing and frustrating.

    I want the chance to chew away at some double unders… Ditto to everything above. 15 wallballs/minute will give you 2 minutes to jump rope. If you know consecutive double unders are going to be a problem fatigued, try a strategy like three singles then a double. A rep is counted every time the rope passes beneath you twice, so don’t waste energy, just do what it takes to get some points on the board and keep your head in the game.

    I wanna try to get my first ever muscle up… Watching folks PR their snatch on 13.1 was pretty cool. The chances you’ll get your first muscle up in this WOD are… slim. CrossFit loves a miracle and an inspirational video though, so maybe it’ll happen. But for the love of god don’t get hurt. Your next month of training is much more important than this WOD. PS- unfortunately we cant teach everyone how to do muscle ups seconds before the WOD starts, so don’t ask your coach to instruct them.

    As we develop more strategy we will post here. Please comment with anything you learn by attacking 13.3. HAVE FUN!
