Wondering what people are saying about the Open Prep Guide? Here are some of the comments:
5 rounds for time:
15 pull ups
15 thrusters - 75/50#
- like it says, 5 rounds for time
- warm up movements well and aerobically before hand
- work on resisting fatigue in run repeats and getting a rhythm

Prioritize sleep. Sound familiar? That’s because we rebuild both our body and mind in our sleep. Your mental stresses are integrated during sleep much like they would be if you were to think through or process any issue you may be experiencing or unconsciously perceiving.
Question your stress. Is your stress appropriate? If it is, great. It is serving you well. If it is not and is more perceptually based, use the 4 Questions I gave you last week to start to unravel it.
Embrace the challenge. Problems arise when people perceive more challenge than support. I wrote about this in a previous blog post when I said that, “an athlete enters into a competition knowing that there is going to be challenge.” The athlete embraces the challenge, whereas a majority of people reject challenge in the daily grind of life. We are under this false pretense that life is supposed to be easy. Life is hard (shout out to Bernie on that one), but we can certainly reframe our perspective on those hardships.
Watch your comparisons. People become stressed when they make unrealistic comparisons. This is probably the largest source of unconscious stress that I see in people. They believe they “should be” doing this or that because that is what someone they admire or society promotes. And because that is not really who they are, it causes them stress when they inject those comparisons because they can’t live up to it. Be who you are.
Prioritize sleep. #1 exacerbator of all other stressor is lack of sleep--this is when we unwind, detox, rebuild.
Solid diet. Easiest factor to control, not easy in practice. Remove common nutritional offenders, remove major stress.
Remove alcohol. I see many athletes that have a LOT of areas dialed, but leave this, and wonder why the wheels just spin. Like sleep, it affects & increases all other stressors, physical and mental.
