set the dates

Optimum Performance Training Inc. will be hosting 4 online competitions from Sep 2009 to March 2010.
The individual competitions will be tests of fitness over a 2 day period; the first being Sept 26th and Sep 27th, 2009; the second being Nov 14th and 15th, 2009
The workouts will be released days prior to the weekend events.
These competitions are open to all.
A few things to start:
- there will be 4 total competitions
- prizes will be awarded to top male and female for each competition as well as year end "top dawg"
- how one places in each event will go towards overall year end score to determine the "top dawg"
- video entries are mandatory if you are not judged within Optimum Performance Training

The competitions will give those who choose fitness as their sport an opportunity to test themselves throughout the year. It will allow the building of a community, one which believes in continually testing human performance under our definition of fitness.
Use the competitions as weekend events for your affiliates, as opportunities to get together with other dawgs or just as a chance to compete against a few of the fittest around.
The Big Dawg schedule and planning will be based on these events as well as of course the accumulation of preparing everyone in their area for their respective regional qualifiers for a chance to get to the show.
This is what we know right now for sure, more details to follow including prizes, awards and event details...enjoy!

DDeaton, answer from yesterday re: fuelling...i have formulated some "generalized" guidelines i post on the blog to help people get started on thinking more about how to refuel post wod as opposed to following literature alone...i have used 1000's of clients over the years as guinea pigs in this arena to try and find a best approach to answering your question...but it still remains the same...everyones post wod fuelling is based on certain criteria for sure but remember that EVERYONE is different...ask any of the dawgs here that i train...they all have slightly different post wod formulas based on lifestyle, sleep, gender, ...and other things outside of BF and intensity of wod...hope that helps a little more..

Surrey, e-mail me..optimumtraining@shaw.ca...i watched the vids you posted...excellent attitude for you and your crew out there for the DU's...but i also saw your snatch practice...drop me a line...you guys have to make those weekends a road trip to come and hang out here with the other dawgs...that comment is open to all other dawgs as well...we can all put you up somewhere...it'll be like having a billet on hockey trips when you were younger..er...maybe not

steve smith, practice your skills you need to work on as someone said on the 2nd part of your 3rd day workout...but ensure it is for skill and not intensity...this is where most go wrong...they attempt to improve work capacity or endurance or relative strength but instead work on adrenaline and knock their adrenals further into the ground...i'll take care of the fitness.you practice the skills as needed...but i will hit on lots so it'll come around for sure...when i needed work on my OH stuff i really did not do much more than just more "focus" on it through goal setting, visualization and ensuring that when it was time to test it...i ate bees before hand...hope that helps

Lisa M said...

OPT does this mean you are holding the events at CFC so if i live here i can come and compete there - that would be awesome as i work out alone at home in my basement and it would be nice to do a wod or two or four with some big dawgs!!!

OPT said...

Thank you/Frank

Rob Ottesen said...

I am so pumped about this. I will do everything i can to stay competative with all you big dawgs of course the army dictates alot of my training since i dont have a home gym. But this should be fun at least i have the ANVIL at Rorys house to get nasty in. I will start to try posting videos so people can throw me extra critisism other than what i get from Rory. Cant wait
