CrossFit Gym Management: Programming Around the Open
Programming for your gym around the Open is really tricky. You don’t know what’s coming out every Thursday night, so it’s hard to know exactly what you should program. That's five weeks you can't plan in advance, but have to confront a week at a time.
One way I approach this is to actually end my year’s programming cycles at the start of the Open. That way, I’m not locked into anything I may have to undo as the Open WODs come out. But it also means each week of the Open I still have to get the programming done quickly and in response each WOD announcement.
