The Open 2017 at CrossFit SPT

First off, what the heck is The Open?

The Open is a 5 week world wide competition. It is the first step for any athlete wanting to make it to Regionals or the Games. Every Thursday CrossFit HQ will release a workout. All registered athletes will have until Monday evening to do the workout and then submit their score online. Your score is put up on the worldwide leaderboard, where you can see where you stand in your age division and skill division. Sounds intimidating, and it can be…but don’t stop reading yet!

There are different divisions broken up by age and skill level. There is a teen division for ages 14-17 and  Masters division beginning at age 35. The scaled division is just that-a scaled version of the released workout. The scaled division will not have most gymnastics movements like handstand push-ups, muscle ups, etc. and the weights will be considerably lighter compared to the Rx division. If you typically scale all of your class workouts then this is the division for you.

If you are new to CrossFit within the last month, chances are, this year you are going to want to be a cheerleader and judge (both are vitally important roles in The CrossFit Open). If you’ve been in the CrossFit world for more than a few months, and have gotten to see all of the movements and are comfortable with performing them at high intensity then we say, “YES, do it!!!”


“If it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you.”



At CrossFit SPT you will have 2 opportunities to be judged.

1. The Open workout will be the workout of the day for Friday classes.
2. We will be hosting Friday Night Lights this year. Every Friday (times TBA) come on up for a workout and community in a competitive atmosphere.



There is no better place to go as hard as you can in a workout than in your home CrossFit gym. There is also no better feeling than to be cheered on by your fellow athletes, and to cheer them on as they do their workout. It’s pushing yourself past what you thought was possible. It’s about getting a great workout in, then cracking a beer with some friends. It’s about the community.

Plank Holds-More Than Just a Six Pack

You hear us say it all the time, “Core tight!”

A strong tight core is a great way to prevent injury especially, in the low back. When our stomach is pulled in tight, our low back isn’t taking on the brunt of the load.

Okay, so what is a tight core?

Think about someone coming up to you and trying to hit you in the stomach. Feel how you pull your belly button in, ribs down and hips up a bit? That is a tight stomach. Now squeeze your butt. BOOM! Tight core.

Weight training, gymnastics training, and the other skills we do everyday in class will strengthen your core, but there is always room to improve that core strength. A plank hold is one of our favorite exercises to not only strengthen your abdominal muscles, but to strengthen them over time while under tension, just like during a CrossFit workout.

Getting into a Plank

  1. Start at the top of a push up position with your wrist, elbows, and shoulders all in line.
  2. Feet together, and you should be up on your toes.
  3. Now brace your core! Squeeze your tummy in and together, then squeeze your butt!

Plank There should be no dip in the hips, or big hump up top either.

 

Start with doing them in a Tabata (8 rounds, :20 hold, :10 rest) then move on to longer holds, or start trying to do them on the side to engage your oblique’s more. You are always welcome to do these before/after class starts, and they are great to incorporate into on the road workouts, as well!

Side Plank

 

A strong core=a strong back

Happy Training!
