If you’re participating in the Open, I’ve written a CrossFit Open 15.5 nutrition strategy for you!
15.5 is going to challenge even the most elite competitors. This couplet of rowing and thrusters is going to burn through some major glycogen and leave you gassed.
Eating well in the days, weeks and months leading up to the Open is the biggest way to set up a strong foundation for your best performance, but there are certainly some things to think about for 15.5.
If you’re doing The Open, the workout for the fifth (and last) week is:
27-21-15-9 reps for time of:
Men use 95 lb.
Women use 65 lb.
Going hard enough to get a good score while keeping yourself from red-lining and blowing up is going to be critical!
I competed in The Open three times and went to Regionals in 2013, so I know exactly how this one is going to feel: painful. This is the last WOD so give it your best effort!
