When I first joined at CrossFit 818 I would check the blog first thing in the morning to see what the workout of the day was. First, I would look at the movements that were on the agenda - cleans or squats made me happy, double-unders or burpees made me sad. After that I would spend some time trying to figure out how I would tackle the workout. I would often set lofty goals for myself during those early days and most of the time my planned reps and rounds ended up being way off the mark. However, doing this gave me something to shoot for, at least I wasn't stumbling around in the dark once the clock started ticking. Also, knowing what's on the whiteboard that day is beneficial because it helped me engage more effectively in class. A lot of the workouts seem complex at first glance and I can usually tell who read the blog when I'm coaching and who didn't. It's kind of like skimming your textbooks before the semester starts. A little awareness goes a long way in having a better experience in class!
