Talking Training for Competition

Hello - I am about to sign up for my first competition. Waiting on ladies to confirm with me so we can have a team of 3 for Mayhem in the Meadowlands.

I have been doing Crossfit for a bit over a year and have been very consistent with going. 3-4 times a week. On good runs 4-5 times a week. The event is only 8 weeks away and I would like to compete in the Rx division.

I feel like going 4-5 days a week is good, but I'd like to add something to that to work on my strength. Wed AM and open Gym Sundays I would like to use as my "extra" time outside the 4-5 WODs a week. Any suggestions on what I do with that extra time? I also in general would like to put up bigger #'s on my deadlifts, cleans, squats ect.

I just want to make sure I use my time wisely and further improve myself!

Thanks for any help.

Couple questions: have you already consulted your coach regarding your goals? And does your box already have a strength portion to their WODs every day?

Re: Training for Competition

I have not talked to my coaches yet about my goals.
and - Mostly - we have strength portion to some WODS, but not every single day.
