Open Programming – What to Expect

One of the draws of the Open, at least for me anyways, is the fact that it is a test of the “unknown and the unknowable”. Not even your Coaches know the workout before it is announced on Thursday night. While the mysterious nature of the Open workouts is an exhilarating highlight of the competition, it throws a monkey wrench in our weekly workout planning. Fortunately, over the years we have developed a specific template to guide our programming during the five weeks of the Open.

Scaling options will be provided.

Introducing the Level Method

We are very excited to bring the Level Method to Tidal. The Level Method is a system of testing and tracking that will integrate with our current programming and help you get the most out of your workouts. The Level Method is a collection of 15 tests that assess overall fitness and provides a tangible metric to track the development of our general physical preparedness (GPP). Each test corresponds to a mode in which our bodies use energy to produce power - an energy system. By asking us to complete a variety of familiar workouts and exercises, the Level Method allows us to have a better understanding of our strengths and weaknesses letting us to focus on our shortcomings and rapidly improve our GPP.

WOD for Humboldt Broncos

...So I would like to ask you, Tidal Nation, to help these families by donating to https://ca.gofundme.com/funds-for-humboldt-broncos.  We will be hosting a workout on Saturday, April 14 written by Burlington Business Leader, Joe Tolles, a guy who has ridden more buses then I have, to show how thankful we are that we have each other and to honour the individuals that lost their lives that night.  

The Fearless Warrior’s Mindset

You can’t teach a mindset in the way you can teach someone how to fix their squat or to pull a clean properly. But it can be built. And it is not necessarily a fact that you either have it or you don’t. Mindset is a skill just like any other. Some people seem to be born with a certain mindset the same as some seem to be born with a gift for gymnastics. But both can be taught. And in the same vein both are perishable. For someone wanting to up their mental game first you need to really look at yourself and be honest about your performance. Did you break up those wall balls because you truly failed, or was it more that you were tired and uncomfortable?
