    CrossFit Open 15.1 Nutrition Strategy

    If you’re participating in the Open, I’ve written a CrossFit Open 15.1 nutrition strategy for you!

    It’s safe to say that eating well in the days, weeks and months leading up to the Open is the biggest way to set up a strong foundation for your best performance, but there are definitely some key pieces to think about based on what 15.1 is throwing your way.

    If you’re doing The Open, the workout for the first week is:


    Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 9 minutes of:

    15 toes-to-bars
    10 deadlifts (115 / 75 lb.)
    5 snatches (115 / 75 lb.)


    1-rep-max clean and jerk
    6-minute time cap

    This classic metcon rolls straight into a max-effort clean and jerk which presents some unique challenges for fueling.

    I competed in The Open three times and made it to Regionals in 2013, so you could say I’m pretty familiar with how to eat for these types of workouts.
