Some cool thoughts on local competition planning

Leave a comment

Outlaw Coach, Rudy Nielsen shares his thoughts on local competition planning!

“There are 3 kinds of local competitions:

1) “Uh… We don’t have enough gear so we’re gonna use kettlebells for everything.”

2) “Hey everybody, look how much shit we threw in this WOD—you want a treasure map for the final chipper?”

3) “Fuck you. You’re gonna die this weekend!”

I’m sure some people who have put on local competitions will get fairly butt hurt by this post, but I don’t care—if you think I’m talking about you, I probably am. There are a few simple rules you should follow when programming a test worthy of the athletes who will attend your event.

The first thing you should think about is whether you’re testing fitness or weird shit that you like.”

Stop going to these events. Stop trying to win $20 trophies. I love this sport—please don’t let it be ruined.”
