Friday Night Lights Update


Update on Friday Night Lights:


To keep things running more smoothly and to allow our athletes to be set up for success as much as possible, here’s how I’ll be running FNL from here on:


1.  I’ll announce the workout at 5:30pm to all competitors where we will define standards and ROM on all movements, workout strategies, warmup strategies, etc.  You are all certainly welcome to be there plenty early to begin your warmup, especially if you are going in an earlier heat!


2.  The heats for the workout will be posted on WODhopper and capped at the maximum number of athletes we can have competing per heat.  YOU MUST RSVP TO THE HEAT YOU WANT TO GO IN, AND IT WILL BE CAPPED.  REGISTRATION WILL BE ON A FIRST-COME-FIRST-SERVE BASIS.  Since I don’t know what the workout will be (which will affect how many athletes can do it at a time as well as time duration of the workout), I won’t be able to do this until after the workout has been posted.  The heats will be available for signup sometime between about 7-8pm tonight if all goes well.


3.  If you miss your scheduled heat time, you’ll get bumped to the back of the line.  We have to keep things moving and on schedule, since everyone else’s warmup and fueling will be depending on their heat times!


4.  We will continue to run heats until all athletes who wish to test have tested.


I think this is the best way to do it so that everyone can plan and fuel accordingly.  When you sign up for your heat, just make adjustments to your fuel timing as well as when you start your warmup so that you’re ready to go on time!  This will prevent someone from needing to miss their ideal timing window.


Thanks in advance, and I hope you all agree that this is the best course of action moving forward to ensure the success of all our athletes competing in the 2016 CrossFit Open!  See you soon!
