Hey CJ,

I am contemplating going to a combine in two weeks for the SAGL. It’s the Atlanta Assassins tryout. It’s a 6.5 hour drive and would be a full weekend trip. The winner receives an invite to the NPGL combine and others could be asked to sign with the Assassins. Do you think that this is something I should invest time into or that it would be beneficial?

Thanks!
Logan

I’m sure this question will be asked closer to time, but I was wondering when the open workouts are released will it be a programmed into open cycle for which day to do it or will it be do it when you feel most ready to? I’ve been following invictus ever since the open ended last year so I did not see how it went. Thank you

Hey man “most” of the time the open workout is announced on a Thursday which is always our rest day. Then the open WOD is usually programmed on that Friday or Saturday. Again this is my first year following Invictus but that’s how other programs do it.
Hope this helps!
