    CrossFit Open 15.2 Nutrition Strategy

    If you’re participating in the Open, I’ve written a CrossFit Open 15.2 nutrition strategy for you!

    15.1 threw a curveball at the field with a separately scored, two-part workout of a classic AMRAP triplet plus a time-capped max clean and jerk. And now, 15.2 has been announced as the encore to last year’s 14.2! If you did The Open last year, this is a great one to test your progress and see how much fitter you are.

    It’s safe to say that eating well in the days, weeks and months leading up to the Open is the biggest way to set up a strong foundation for your best performance, but there are definitely some key pieces to think about based on what 15.2 is throwing your way.

    If you’re doing The Open, the workout for the second week is:

    15.2

    For as long as possible:

    From 0:00-3:00
    2 rounds of:
    10 overhead squats (95 / 65 lb.)
    10 chest-to-bar pull-ups

    From 3:00-6:00
    2 rounds of:
    12 overhead squats (95 / 65 lb.)
    12 chest-to-bar pull-ups

    From 6:00-9:00
    2 rounds of:
    14 overhead squats (95 / 65 lb.)
    14 chest-to-bar pull-ups

    Etc., following same pattern

    This one’s all about how much you’re willing to suffer and tough it out, pushing yourself into to the next rounds for ever-increasing reps of overhead squats and chest to bar pull-ups.

    I competed in The Open three times and went to Regionals in 2013, so you could say I’m pretty familiar with how to eat for these types of workouts.
