1st Competition!!!!

So, I just entered my first crossfit competition. Life As Rx US tour in Chicago. I probably won't be able to do everything Rx'd but I will do everything in my power to be able to, and I will give it my all. I have 6 weeks to work on my goats. Here is a list of my goats:
 Double Under
 HandStand PushUp
 Pistol
 MuscleUp
 Snatch/OH Squat
 Rope Climb
I know it is a lengthy list but I figure I will be better for doing this competition than if I hadn't. I plan on doing 5 on 2 off, 1 WOD per day (AM). Also doing skill/goat work on WOD days in the PM. And doing a lil skill work on my first off day.
Basically doing mon-fri, sat/sun off with skill work on sat.

6 WEEKS 3...2...1...GO!!!!

Re: 1st Competition!!!!

Thanks David, I was going to get my subscription today actually.

By the way, I am a garage gym guy so all of the training will be in my garage!!!

Re: 1st Competition!!!!

Good Luck! I just entered my first one as well - The Mid Atlantic Hopper in November. I'm totally nervous and occasionally think I might be crazy for signing up. I have a list of skills to work on as well. I'm sure we'll both give it everything and do great though!
