WOD Well breaks down Crossfit Open workout 14.4

March 24, 2014

 Crossfit Open workout 14.4 turned out to be one of the more fun Open WODs I've had the "pleasure" of doing. I guess I have a thing for chippers and I was comfortable with all of the movements involved. With that said I still think I could've done better by coming up with a strategy beforehand and following it throughout the entire 14 minutes of work.

This feeling of "I should've been able to do more" or "What would I do differently next time" is pretty common among crossfitters. We're always looking for ways to move better, push harder, and suffer longer. Coaches and athletes of all levels are seeing the benefits of WOD strategy in relation to their performance. Your mental strength can be just as important as your physical strength, and can do a lot to help you get a few more reps or shave some time of your next WOD.

The idea of WOD Well is based on this theory, and they've been putting out some great videos of every day athletes like you and me hitting all of the Crossfit Open workout that have been announced. Certified Crossfit coaches work with 2 athletes to help them strategize how to get their best performance based on their unique skill set and strength and weaknesses.

Enjoy!
