2016 Alpine CrossFit Open Details ….and do I smell FREE Nanos?!
Please please! If you only read one part of this please read the following: In my opinion, the #1 reason why you should do the CrossFit Open is to evaluate your progress over the year. The Open is somewhat of a Tax Return – its a great reflection of what you have (or maybe have not) accomplished with your fitness over the year. Compare yourself TO YOURSELF and NOT to others. If you got a ZERO on the workout last year with Chest-to-bar pull-ups and this year you get TEN C2B pull-ups then, CONGRATS, you just became 10x MORE OF A NINJA. We generally use CrossFit benchmarks as being the best gauge for your fitness; however, I believe the Open is the best individual test of well rounded fitness because of the “unknowable-ness” of the comprehensive programming while being measurable, observable, and repeatable.
