Have you been to the Regionals/CrossFit Games previously? European Regionals 2011 with my team CrossFit Malmö, 6th place
How has your training been leading up to the CrossFit Opens 2012? I have worked alot with my mentality.. I was not sure I would compete this year, competing is just not my thing. But now, after I decided, I only see Regionals as training and have fun with fellow crossfitters.
How will your training be leading up to the CrossFit Regionals 2012? I’ll try to do 1 day ON 1 day OFF right now.. and I will try 1 or 2 times to go through the whole program for regionals 3 days straight.
What is your favorite WOD for Regionals? Hmm probably event 2, It’s not my thing, but it looks fun 🙂
What is your least favorite WOD for Regionals? Event 1. Never done and been avoiding Diane. Can’t kip 😦
What will you be focusing on leading up to the Regionals? Rest/Recover from some small injuries. Focus on Snatch and HSPU.
Who are your biggest competitors at Regionals? Myself. The other guys competing is just friends I wish the best for.
Which WOD are you most excited to see performed? Will be so cool to see some big dudes lift really heavy snatches at the Ladder, event 5.
Who are your most excited to see in action (men/women/teams)? Men: Mikko Aronpää, Frederik Aegidius and Alexander Krüger / Women: Katrin Tanja Davidsdottir / Teams: Butcher’s Garage, Solid and of course CrossFit Malmö!
