Analyzing the 2014 CrossFit Regional Events
Analyzing the 2014 CrossFit Regional Events:
The Games are coming up soon! There will be several events with different levels of difficulty. If you want to compete at the top level, then you need to train hard and get fit. You must have a strong core, good mobility, and great strength. These skills allow you to perform many movements with ease while keeping your body safe from injury.
However, if you don’t have these skills or are not willing to work hard then you won’t be able to perform well in any event. For example, some people may think they can do pull ups but aren’t very flexible and therefore cannot complete them properly. Other people may think they can squat deep enough without pain so they can do all their other exercises correctly. They just don’t have the right amount of strength. Some people simply lack flexibility and don’t have the strength to do certain things like full squats or even some of the basic exercises such as pushups.
In order to improve your skill set, you need to practice them frequently. However, there are two types of training that you can do – one type is high intensity and the other is low intensity. The high intensity is used to improve your anaerobic system while low intensity is used to improve your aerobic system. Since the goal of the CrossFit Games is to test your overall capabilities, you cannot neglect either one or you won’t be in the best shape come competition time.
The high-intensity training is ideal for improving your speed and power. It also allows you to lift more weight and bulk up for some of the events such as overhead lifts.
