The 2013 Open is coming to an end! This WOD is awesome and will definitely test your mentality.
I want you to perform your best and feel great about each WOD. In order to do that, you have to be calm, focused and confident. Your mind must work for you, instead of against you.
- Do not get caught up talking to everyone in your box about how many reps you think you’ll get or should get. Stay focused on what you need to do during the WOD to move as smoothly and quickly as possible.
- Focus on 5, 10 or 15 reps at a time. At the beginning, you may focus on 15 reps at a time, then begin to break it down to smaller sets. Do not think about 100s or reps or how it’s going to feel at the 10 minute mark. Focus on attacking small, manageable amounts of reps, one set at a time.
- After you complete 13.5 take 15 minutes to journal about what you learned from The Open this year, how you can get better for next year and things that you are proud of about your overall performance
- Read about the danger of over-thinking in #79 – Read about getting ‘no-repped’ in #24 – and take some time to focus on improving your mental strength (HERE), you’ll need it for this WOD
- Did you see Khalipa staring at his hands after the first round? Read THIS, and remember to keep your head up and eyes focused on the bar
