1 word to describe the Sectionals in Stockholm

FUN !

2 things I would have done different 

1. Hmm … not learning my opponents to squatclean before the last WOD – looks like they nailed that one … ha ha

2. Maybe I should have dropped a KB on Jenny – damn that girl was in good shape!

3 wishes for the Regionals 

Boxjumps ! New lifting shoes! 1 rep max OH squat !

4 nice things about the Sectionals

1. Getting to know my fellow crossfitters even better!

2. Hanging around the competetion and talking to a lot of new people!

3. Being able to perform all the WODs rx’ed!

4. Really pushing my limits!

5 things that I’ve learned from this experience

1. That I shouldn’t eat too much dried fruit !! It fu*ks your stomach up!

2. That I need to control my flexability ( I sometimes landed on the floor, before standing up in the squatclean)

3. Taking chances pays off (if you feel like it, go for that PR)

4. Getting yelled at makes me perform 10% extra – I’m so gratefull for all the support!

5. What you do in your everyday training, is what you do in competetion. So don’t be sloppy with the standards in your daily training – you won’t be able to correct when you’re stressed out! I was happy that I’m always trying to make every rep count, saved me a lot of “fails” …

Thanks to Casall for supporting me!

AWESOME 🙂

2 things I would have done different

1. Increased the weight on my final deadlift,
2. I would have turned around for the squat cleans in the final WOD to see how my opponents were doing and thereby forcing me to speed up my pace.

Barbell complexes, high box jumps (above 30″s), and no running!

4 nice things about the Sectionals

1. The ambiance,
2. The judges actually performed well,
3. Getting a real look at Mikko Salo (I’ve got almost the same proportions, so maybe with 4 hours of physical training per day, I can accomplish what he has),
4. Being away with some of the nicest people in Danish CrossFit garnished with a little X-factor on friday to get you psycked for saturday’s workouts 🙂

5 things that I’ve learned from this experience

1. To stay focused,
2. To know how far you can push yourself,
3. To never underestimate the importance of the right mindtset before workouts,
4. The looks of the athlete can be decieving. Usually there’s more – or less:-) – underneath,
5. I learned that I still have a long way to go in CrossFit.

Frederik finished 4th!
