5 Tips to Mentally Survive the CrossFit Open

The CrossFit Open is designed to test your limits and to push you further than you’ve ever gone before. While the physical toll on your body is high, the CrossFit Open will also test your mind. In order to survive this intense course, you’ll need to make sure you do these five important things.

1. Control What You Can Control

When you have positive, powerful thoughts about what you can do, you are more likely to succeed.
As you participate in the CrossFit Open, you need to remember that there are things that will be beyond your control. You cannot change those items, so you need to accept them for what they are. At the same time, you can control your thoughts, emotions, and your actions. When you have positive, powerful thoughts about what you can do, you are more likely to succeed. Remember that your goal is to be the best version of yourself out there, and that is what you should focus on.

2. Mentally Rehearse for the Workout of the Day

At the CrossFit Open, you’ll have a workout of the day to embrace. Before you even step up to the challenge, go through the process in your mind. Rehearse the precise movements you’ll take and where you’ll have your frame of mind. In order to succeed, you’ll want to take the time to go over every fine detail and pump yourself up so that you are in the zone and believe you can do this.
