8 Tips To Prepare For a CrossFit Competition

Being a coach to several athletes who compete on a higher level, I often get asked for tips related to improving a Crossfit competition performance.

In this article I will offer my personal best-of list with useful and easy tips, which will make your Crossfit competition experience more successful. In my opinion “successful” is not defined by the score on the final leaderboard!

Successful is defined as the following:

Is the athlete able to execute?

This means: is the Crossfit athlete able to show his 100%, what he trained for, by executing his skills at the crucial moment, when everyone is watching and the pressure is on.

Over the years I saw multiple athletes who were great in training, had all the skills needed, trained for months but end up “crashing” because of a little mistake they made the day before or during competition period.

Do not be that guy or girl. Execute.

1. Earn your spot at the final event by being physically prepared

Do not just train for a Crossfit competition. Make a prep plan with your trainer or by yourself. Take at least 12 weeks straight, clever consistent training with working on weaknesses, strength building and engine work. There is no easy way to perform to the best of your abilities. Take the long way.
