Well, the dates for this year’s open and regionals level competition are now up. It’s happening! The first open workout is scheduled to be announced February 26th 2015. At fitness pain free we’re starting our pre-season preparation. Month’s of off-season skill and strength work are starting to be blended with more conditioning work specific to what we’ll be seeing at the open this year. We’ve spent the past 9 months building efficiency with gymnastics skills, olympic lifts and building baseline conditioning to carry us through the competitive season.
We can never be completely sure of what will pop up in the open but if previous year’s events are any indication we can have a pretty good idea. Doublets, AMRAPS with an average time of 10-12 minutes, snatches, clean and jerk, burpees and box jumps are all something we should be getting mighty good at.
This month’s programming is really getting specific. If you’re wondering how to progress from off-season training to in-season, here’s how I do it. If you don’t have a plan for training the last 2 months before the open, I’ve made the plan for you. Check it out with the link below.

You’ll still be able to get the same programming but I’ll be offering options to cater the programming to your own specific goals. I receive a lot of requests for specific programming to help people return to sport after getting injured. I’d like to be able to help these people but it’s going to require an overhaul of how I do things. Stay tuned and I’ll be coming out with the specifics over the next few months.
You’re going to be getting really good at pull-ups and thrusters,
