So, if you are gonna read this, I hope that by now you have decided to enter the open. Or perhaps already entered it but left for some reason or another (read on anyway). You then got through your qualifying time or had fun with the open’s social side and decided it is not right for you. Maybe there is something more important in life than doing all 70 reps of snatches at 90 percent effort, maybe the workouts aren’t hard enough or you thought Crossfit was more of a work out than play. Whatever your reasons may be…maybe its because of any one of these reasons things like hurting yourself (which happens) getting sidelined (also happens) high blood pressure problems (is happening), not eating properly during competition season etc., etc. You probably stopped competing even though you could do more WODS…and that means that some people can see them as nothing special! This isn’t true! There are also numerous people who just love to compete, they don’t care about losing weight….they just want to be part of an amazing group of people supporting each other whilst pushing themselves past what they thought possible! For those interested here is a short survey for anyone wondering if Crossfit Games fit their lifestyle/goals:

What Vitamins/Should I Take As A Crossfit?
Vegans who don’t ingest any animal protein are missing out on an extremely wide variety of micronutrients. If your vegan lifestyle is unfamiliar to you, it may be wise to talk to a doctor or nutritionist before beginning any dietary changes. For the following list, exercise caution with regard to dietary supplements and the dosage needed for the recommended effects. As always, consult your doctor before trying any new supplementation regimen if you have questions! Iron: Although iron deficiency makes up only about one-third of iron intake in women without heavy menstrual periods or menopausal symptoms, this portion should still be accounted for because elemental iron that does find its way into meat-heavy diets can become toxic (source). Vegans need at least 25 mg (from grains) and nonvegans 30 mg (34% RDA), whereas vegetarians get these amounts from less than 10 grams of red meat per day (source). Iron absorption is inhibited by phytates and low vitamin C levels; these two factors limit most omnivores’ ability to absorb adequate amounts (source). Absorption is enhanced by food based sources like soy, molasses and legumes; however, regular consumption isn’t required according to experts—your best bet is consuming iron rich foods regularly. Do not rely on multivitamins that contain no more than 15 mg of alpha-carotene or 20 percent RDA in combination with calcium or zinc for premenstrual replacement
