We sent your questions to CrossFit Games veteran Christy Adkins, and here’s what she said!
What training tip/advice/learning you have discovered most impactful over multiple Opens and Games preparations? – David S.
When I embraced the philosophy that there is no “road map to the Games” and there is NO ONE who has a perfect path in getting there, it helped me handle setbacks and “bad days” better and gave me the confidence to train to be the best that I can be. My coach always reminds me “your best is good enough,” meaning if I can perform to the best of my abilities, I will be able to achieve my goal.
After your shoulder surgery, what was the single most important thing you did to get back to full range of motion?- @kathrinoutloud
The MOST important thing that I did to get my shoulder back to full range of motion was to schedule a full 45 minutes a day dedicated to doing the stretching and strengthening exercises given to me by my physical therapist and my Airrosti doctor.

A day on the beach, lobster dinner, and an ice cream cake.

Watching Homeland and The Americans with my husband.
How’d you get to be such a bad ass? @lizzyhinkley

I haven’t considered competing in combat sports but I’ve always thought it would be interesting to learn and practice a martial art.
