With the qualifiers for the 2009 CrossFit Games approaching now is not the time to work a weakness or learn new things. Max Mormount had these wise words to say about preparing for the qualifiers.

"Two weeks away from the regional games. I recommend you only work out 3 to 4 times a week 2 weeks out and 2 to 3 times a week 1 week out. You should also do 1RM’s or up to 90% the 3rd and 2nd week out. Nothing over 50 reps on gymnastics and nothing over 7 to 9 reps on power and strength movement. The last week you should hardly do anything. Drink lots of water, get 8 hours of sleep, eat well and rest. REMEMBER there is nothing you can do to get ready 2 weeks out. You need to recover!!! Now is not the time to learn things or work on things!!!! Great job everyone and good luck!!!"
