The CrossFit Open is the largest participatory sporting event in the world and we're pleased to announce that Sleven will be involved! This year’s Open will be the most accessible in history, with flexible options for members to compete at home, with or without equipment. All you’ll need is a clear space in your home, driveway, or nearby park.

This year's Open promises to be very different from previous editions. First, it's reduced to three weeks, rather than the customary five week duration. Second, with Coronavirus restrictions causing gym closures and restrictions on operation around the world, participants will be able to do versions of the workout at home. Whilst we'll miss our packed out Friday night Open sessions and our end-of-Open party, the Open will be a great opportunity to bring a focus to your training.

The three-week online event starts on March 11th and will unite Sleven members with athletes all over the globe. We've devised the next phase of Lockdown programming, starting on February 1st, to get you fit and ready and set you up to tackle the Open workouts. As always, this programme is fully adaptable to suit your fitness level and equipment that you have available.

In a nutshell, the programming as a whole will see less Successories and increased classic CrossFit style, at home workouts!

The Plan

Sleven's Open prep programme will run for 6 weeks taking you right up to the start of the competition. You don't have to have any interest in the Open to take part, use it as an opportunity to build your engine over lockdown!
 

Weeks 1 and 2: High Volume + Low Intensity

To kick things off, we will be focusing on getting lots of reps in at a pace you can handle. The workouts will be slightly longer and will have you working at a maintainable pace over the course of each workout.

Week 3: High Volume + Low-Moderate Intensity

Now that we have you used to an increased volume, we'll begin to push the intensity a bit more. As your body and fitness levels adapt to the volume of reps during the workouts, we will be asking you to complete more reps in similar time frames. 
 

Week 4: Moderate Volume + Moderate Intensity

We're now into the meat and potatoes of the programme and we'll begin to reduce the length of workouts to bring them closer to the time frames you can expect in the Open. The reps will also be reduced slightly but the intensity will increase and you will be feeling the BURN!

Week 5: Low Volume + High Intensity

Intensity will be at its peak and you will be going deep into the pain cave. Workouts will be shorter but they will be TOUGH! By the time you get to the end of this week, you will be ready for whatever work the Open throws at you. 

 

Week 6: Maintain

Fitness has well and truly been achieved by this point and this final phase will have you moving at a decreased intensity and volume allowing you to recover, maintain your gainz and prepare for the first week of the Open. 

This programme is designed to get your heart and lungs working! Just because we don’t have access to barbells and a rig to practice the higher skill work, that doesn’t mean that we can’t get proper fit working on the basics.

Open Prep & Power (Half) Hour

Tomorrow is the first day of our 6 week Open Prep programme! If you missed our announcement last week, you can catch-up here.

There are still a lot of details to be finalised as to how the Open is going to work this year given the different levels of lockdown worldwide (even Dave Castro’s 15 minute video on YouTube didn’t really enlighten us as to the finer details as yet). One thing we can assure you is that Sleven will be involved as much as our level of lockdown will allow. As more details come to light, we will keep you informed with the exact details.

MetCon Outdoors

The decision by the Government not to allow gyms and leisure centres to open on 4 July was pretty disappointing. But we’re not going to let that get us down! We’ll be introducing some outdoor MetCon classes for you from Monday 29 June. These classes will be available only to paying members on monthly memberships. Due to limited capacity, we will not be allowing new members to join at this time.

When will SLEVEN Reopen?

A number of members have been asking this question, especially as some gyms have begun to announce their planned reopening dates. We wish that we had some concrete news for you, with a date for opening our doors again. We’re hoping that it will be in July but, frustratingly, the Government has given no further indication nor any information on the restrictions, if any, on how we’ll be operating when that happens.
