MAD Athlete Programming works – does yours?

The MAD Coaches work with our Athletes to help meet their fitness goals. Many of those goals are to do well at the CrossFit Open – even if they are not going to Regionals.
The picture above shows just a few of our athlete’s improvement from the 2014 CrossFit Open to 2015 CrossFit Open.
The numbers speak for themselves.
Athletes are made in the off-season. Are you ready to start your off-season now?
The 2015 Reebok Crossfit Open is just about finished. So many Madathletes leveled up this year. I am super proud of all of the madathletes that put in so much work to improve skills strength speed and mentality.
The super secret technique to the 2016 reebok open is this….
The key to a great season is a great off season.
This trumps all the little magical technique suggestions and ideas. If your off season didn’t prepare you for all levels of CrossFit, then even the best technique video will not help.
For some of you the season is just beginning…
You have regionals upcoming and the games locked in your sights.
For others this journey has brought you to your off season and the time for evaluation and assessing goals has come. It’s time to make that plan and start working on improving those skills and of course building a bigger motor.
If you don’t have your complete plan put together… you don’t have your coach (everyone needs a coach, even Rich Fronning has a coach), if you don’t have your nutrition plan set, if you don’t have your gymnastic skills, Oly skills, endurance and mobility plans set. It is time to decide and take action.
Change only comes from taking action.

A few of the CrossFit Cedar Park MADathletes taking on 15.1 and 15.1A.
The open is fast upon us and mad athletes from around the world are taking it on and leveling up each week. As soon as the CrossFit Games website allows for custom leaderboards we will make on for all of the MADathletes competing in the open.
Check out madathlete Andre pulling that big deadlift PR. 550lbs. Just imagine what he’ll do when we hit that strength cycle…
MAD Athletes and coaches getting some junk yard dog warm up before the smash.
They method you use to warm up is extremely important. Too many athletes gloss over the warm up and this will most likely put them at greater risk for injury. I have heard athletes say “a lion never warms up going for the kill”. Yep, this is true, but a lion never did a max snatch or “Fran”.
With the proper warm up / dynamic movement prep (DMP), you are preparing your central nervous system for explosiveness, your joints for smooth movement, your muscles for maximum contraction and your mind for the event. That mental portion can prove valuable when you are competing. The sheer routine of your warm up can get your mind set for that event and dial in your focus to laser sharp levels. Now since most of you are not in the gym doing solely slow movements and you get your body to explode quite a bit this DMP is very important.
You are also giving yourself a layer of protection against injury. There are no guarantees when it comes to injury prevention but as an athlete you should be doing what you can to stay durable and ready to wod again.
Finally think about this, your movement prep can vary depending on the type of wod you will be doing. You may need to get that heart rate up quite a bit and recover before the wod or you may not. Keep that in mind also.
Now. Go hit it.
Get some instant mobi between sets! No set up needed, no bands, no whips, and no chains.
Motion is lotion so hitting your end range of motion for those joints is ideal for MOST of you. Remember there are always exceptions based on history, injury etc. YOU, the athlete are the CEO of your body and ultimately in charge of its care and upkeep. You should know your body’s sticky points and where you need to put some extra work in.
“tightness inhibits strength”
Now get some swimwod.net going and some mobi!
So many amazing things happening with madathletes! Oly meets, CrossFit competitions, Prs, and so much more. We are having a blast working with you all!
Personally I am so blessed to be a part of the Barbells for Boobs event hosted by CrossFit Centex. What an amazing event. My son participated for the 3rd year in a row. I’m super proud of him as well as all the madathletes who are leveling up each and everyday. Mad coaches and great friends Chad and Jodi Vaughn host the Central Texas Oly Open the Sunday after. Can’t say enough about this whole group of people. Set yor
calendars next year gang.
Amanda Busset at CrossFit Alaka’i hosted an amazing B4B event that we are super proud of. They’ve been getting a lot of love on that event.
Like I said. A lot going on!
