Fighting For One Good Rep

by Arena Ready on February 9th, 2015

The Open talk continues...

After yesterday's post the good folks at The CrossFit Games published an article titled "Fighting For One Good Rep."  Here's an excerpt:

Chuck Miller had been doing CrossFit for a year-and-a-half when he signed up for the 2014 Open. Yet the 63-year-old had never done a single toes-to-bar, and Open Workout 14.4—an AMRAP of rowing for calories, toes-to-bars, wall-ball shots, cleans, and muscle-ups—called for 50.

Read about this athlete's experience tackling Open WOD 14.4, and his reflections on the process of accomplishing something he didn't think possible - the full article can be found here on the CrossFit Games website.

Over the years at Arena Ready we've witnessed similar stories with our athletes during The Open.  And, as we've noted before, this year will be the first time The Open releases scaled versions of each workout - so participation is even more within reach for so many athletes!
