Some Tips to Prepare for a CrossFit Competition

While the history of CrossFit games is fairly recent, the competition is fierce. Remember that no matter which CrossFit competition you choose, having fun should always be your number one goal. Too many people get freaked out by how they’re going to perform or how they’ll look once they get out on the competition floor. The first 5-10 competitions will be mostly a learning experience, just see where you are and gain valuable competition experience for the future.

Another pro-tip for competitions is to eat the same healthy foods you typically eat before competitions or hard workouts. Since most competitions start in the morning, make sure you wake up early and eat a healthy breakfast. If you don’t eat breakfast, fatigue will most likely set in and it will hurt your ability to recover between sets. Waking up about three hours before competition will also give your body time to digest. As always, drink plenty of water before, during and after competing.
