Chris Spealler continues his preparation: he’s going to the Reebok CrossFit Games to win. Andréa Maria Cecil reports.
There’s one reason Chris Spealler is going to this year’s CrossFit Games.
“Honestly, I’m going to win,” he said. “I’m not going to have fun.”
After managing a third-place finish at the South West Regional with a performance nothing short of remarkable, the iconic CrossFitter is forging ahead in his preparation for his sixth consecutive Games on July 13-15 in Carson, Calif.
For the period before the Games, Spealler will adhere to training similar to that of his preparation for the Regional.
“Maintain the strength, but try to work on weaknesses,” coach Ben Bergeron said. “Keep the athlete confident.”
Generally, the focus will be on strength with programming that includes heavier weight at higher repetitions, followed by improving conditioning.
