Mikko at the 2010 CrossFit Games

2011 Starts Now: Part 1

The Morning After The Games

After the 2010 CrossFit Games, Mikko Salo took a day off—but only one.

The 2009 champion finished fifth on Sunday at the Home Depot Center, and by Tuesday he was back in the gym for two workouts. The Finn just isn’t satisfied with his performance and has dedicated himself to getting back to the top of the podium in 2011, and that climb has already started.

At CrossFit Santa Cruz for a few workouts shortly after the Games, Salo talks about what his training will look like. At the top of the list is skill work including double-unders and rope climbs, both of which slowed the Finn down in Carson. 

For anyone thinking about competing in the CrossFit Games next year, if you haven’t started training, you’re already behind Salo.
