Don't know if this is the proper forum for this but I thought Id start here. Have a young man training with us at the gym. Last week he was getting ready for a track meet. The day before the meet, he did "Three Bars of Death" in the afternoon, that night the class did Cindy. Cindy is his favorite girl, and he had to take part. He did 35 rounds. The following day he felt sluggish at the track meet. Any ideas what went wrong? Diet maybe?
On another note, two of our young CrossFitters did very well. David won the mile, I think his time was around 5:10. Mike won the triple Jump, came in second in the discus.

Yeah...he didn't recover in time. Not to oversimplify or anything, but that's what it boils down to. That's a boatload of work in just a few hours.

I'd look into what he ate...everything from post-workout the day before the track meet up to when the meet started. Also, some evaluation of his sleep (quality and duration of) that night would be helpful.

IMO, he'd be well-served with slightly less volume the day before a meet though.

EDIT

A quick Google yeilded this:
Muscles replace glycogen at a rate of five percent per hour, so it takes 20 to 24 hours post-exercise for the body to replenish muscle glycogen stores maximally.

And that's assuming you're eating with that goal in mind.

Thought a little more about this while I was out on a run. Here's what I came up with.

After doing Cindy, did he have dinner? As it was late anyway, he basically did Cindy, maybe had one meal...and then fasted for 8 hours (sleep). Then I'm assuming that he got up, maybe had breakfast (I know a lot of kids skip that these days)...then went to school. Any snacks between breakfast and lunch?

Sounds like he very well may have been undernourished given his workload.

I think Jeff was being just a wee bit facetious?

If so, I apologize. Unless I see [sarcasm]X[/sarcasm] or some combination of smilies...I assume the post is straightforward.

Yeah, I'm with Lincoln on this one. A date with Linda AND Cindy in the same day (a blistering score for Cindy, as well) is bound to hinder performance at a track meet the next day.

I love reading about stuff like this. It helps me stop feeling sorry for myself and get my crossfit on. 5:10 is blazing fast on the mile, especially at that age. I'm 18 and struggle to run a 5:12 on a good day in spikes on a high-quality track. And 35 rounds is freaking ridiculous for Cindy.

Sarcasm? I find it only promulgates confusion and hurt feelings so I avoid it at all costs.
