Re: Open in 6 months, want to make regionals

Thomas,

Your strength numbers do not appear to be an issue in regards to handling weights in the Open. You also look to be fairly well balanced as well, which would mean you have developed decently and have fairly good technique.

Like Jeff said, what do your other numbers look like ? How lean are you, what skills can you do, cannot do ? where do you find weaknesses ?

Making it through the Open and competing at Regionals are somewhat different animals. The Open is more lightweight/engine psecific, whereas Regionals are heavier and much more skill based.

You likely need to develop some work capacity before the Open. A strength cycle will not be necessary.
