I love competing in CrossFit competitions. Not because I even come CLOSE to winning, but because it gives me a goal to work towards. I train harder in the days leading up to the competition and then after it, I have a better idea of what I need to improve.
Not everyone is at the RX competition level and many of you feel you aren't "ready" to compete. Luckily, there are competitions made just for people who are serious about their training, but just aren't at the RX weights level, YET! Check out this competition in North Haven, CT. A few of us from the box competed here a few months ago and it was a really good competition.
