Re: Program Advice

At 5'9" you want to weight 180 to not get crushed by the weights at regionals.

At 21 you have time and hormones on your side. You can get to 180.

If you were my athlete we would focus on the Open and qualifying for Regionals this year. Once we were confident in making Regionals we would switch programing to focus on success at Regionals the next year.

If you stay healthy you have 2015 to 2020 to try and make the Games. Then you will be getting a little old.

Up and coming Games competitors are thinking in multiple year plans these days.

The way Samantha Briggs coaches handled her after 2011 is a very good example.

Can you give a short example of what type of training you'd do for Open preparation and then Regionals?

Re: Program Advice

A ton of good advice. With your current numbers, you would need to have a top tier engine and be flawless on your skills to qualify for Regionals. Even then, it would be a challenge. Yes, you still have 4-5 months to work on everything so that is a good thing. I like the idea of doing last year's wods and see where this would have seeded you in your region. Based on your performances, come up with a plan.

Building strength is surely a good start but you need the whole package at the end of the day. Great motor and great skills...

Best of luck to you. I wish I was in my low 20's again
