THE 2021 CF GAMES SEASON IS UPON US!
The CrossFit Games for 2020 will occur as a part on-line, part in person event this year due to COVID. It’s a huge bummer for those of us who love to watch the elite of the elite in our sport compete. However, as the Games conclude in this super-crazy year of 2020, our opportunities for a 2021 season and “The Open” begin!
We plan here! Fail to plan…plan to fail, right? From fitness to your career to your life, it’s always going to be this way. Countless friends and family in your/our lives will succumb to this: no planning, and WHAM! What do you mean… my [certification/insurance/subscription] expired?/…I’m late on a bill?/…I missed the deadline to apply? Seriously, we were given brains so let’s use them! We were given coaches to hold us accountable – use us!
We plan around the Open Season here – it’s our annual goal.
What’s the Open? Once a year ahead of the CrossFit Games, CrossFit hosts an online qualifier that is accessible to ANYONE AND EVERYONE! It’s a $20 investment for 5 weeks of local competition to see where your fitness levels compared to last year, to others in the box, and to others across the world in your age bracket and gender.
This year, in line with COVID setback and confusion, the Road to the Games has not been without its obstacles, and the planning for the 2021 Open Season is also a bit of a conundrum. But here’s what we know.
The Open was originally held in February/March of every year. In recent years it was moved to October to accommodate the inception of “Sanctionals” which was supposed to enhance the qualifications for the Games. With the Games being pushed back to October this year due to COVID, the Open IS returning to February/March of 2021!
In the meantime, OUR JOB, is to get you ready for the Open…with an estimated timeframe of mid-February for WOD 21.1.
WHAT WE KNOW
These are the Open Movements…every year since 2011. This is how many times they have shown up in the Open. And THIS is what you need to work on – in isolation for technique, in a WOD for capacity, and strategically as different combinations of movements produce differents metabolic and strength needs.
