It’s in the air, can you feel it?!? This week is the first week of the 2013 CrossFit Games Open. Workout 13.1 will be announced this Wednesday! Our box is going to turn into a buzz of activity come Wednesday evening and into Thursday. Straegery will begin as soon as the workout is announced and continue well into the weekend. Don’t forget to consult Bong if you’re looking for an edge. He’s a wizard at figuring out efficiency and output, and can adjust for your specific abilities.

Your first crack at 13.1 will be Thursday. It will be the WOD for that day. That day will be unlike most other days you’ve experienced at LAX CrossFit. If you were around during last year’s Open, then you know what I’m talking about. If you weren’t, get ready for a cool experience. We split the class down the middle. Everyone partners up and judges each other. We’ll go over the very strict movement standards and expect you all to adhere to them. Don’t feel bad no repping your partner. It’s part of the deal. We all need to know that we’re hitting full range of motion and what a good rep is.

Not Too Late

If you haven’t signed up, don’t worry. It’s not too late. You actually have until Sunday, 3/10, to register for the Open. If you’re waiting to see what Thursday is like, that’s cool. Hopefully the atmosphere will give you a better understanding of why we want you ALL to do it. It’s fun and all the many, many other reasons we’ve told you about here, here, here (free t-shirt post), and here.

Side note: Until there are scores in there, teams are ranked based on number of team members. We have 56 right now, which is good enough for 15th in So Cal (that’s out of 140). Not too shabby. 100 team members would get us in the top 5!!
