With the Crossfit Open just around the corner, we have collected the best advices from our amazing VTeam athletes.
Here are Klaus Uggerhøj (@Klausuggerhoj) and Julie Hougaard Nielsen (@Julie.hn) best advices to get you through The Open
Julie Hougaard Nielsen
Julie has placed 1st in Denmark two years in a row, and her best worldwide finish was in 2019 where she placed 34h.
Hardest Open workout I have ever tried has got to be 19.4.
I am not sure why. It hit me really hard and might be one of the only times I was unable to get up for 10 minutes after.
The most fun Open workout could be 17.3, as I really like the workouts where you progress to heavier weights and get rewarded for being able to lift heavy under fatigue.
I always do the workouts twice. First try will be on Friday, ideally in the morning/midday and then I will rest and redo it again Monday (or Sunday if I need a third try, which is the worst case scenario). Planning the workouts is usually the most stressful part of the Open.
