It’s CrossFit Games Week!

MBS Guide to watching the 2018 CrossFit Games

Can 4-Time CrossFit Games Champion Rich Froning lead his team (CF Mayhem) to another team victory this year?

 

In case you were wondering why your social media feed is buzzing with posts from your friends checking into Madison, WI, it’s because the 2018 CrossFit Games begins this week. Below, I have compiled a guide for all you newbies to CrossFit.

What are the CrossFit Games?

The CrossFit Games are the world wide test to find the fittest Man, Woman, Team, Masters, and Teen athletes on earth. The Games begin this Wednesday and finish on Sunday (8/1-8/5) and are happening in Madison, Wisconsin.

 

Why should I care?

Well, you don’t have to. But, I’d bet you’d be pretty impressed/inspired to watch these athletes that do similar workout routines and exercises that you do, BUT ON A WHOLE NOTHER’ LEVEL! These men and women have worked very hard to get where they are at and it’s absolutely impressive to see what they can do.

Examples of what you might see…

Dave Castro already announced a couple of the individual workouts. 30 muscle ups for time and 1-rep max snatch are two of my favorites…Will anyone go ‘unbroken’ for 30 reps of muscle ups? How many men will snatch over 300 lbs? Women over 200 lbs.? Want to watch a 14-year old female snatch more than you can?? Me too (not!).

 

Here are the important links and ways to get the most out of Games Week:

 

#1. Download the 2018 CrossFit Games App

This is where you will be able to find all the links to the schedule, the events, the leaderboard, how to watch, etc. You can download it from your app store for free.

 

#2. Pick Your Winners for a chance at cash and prizes

Think you can pick the Top 10 men, women, and 5 teams? Reebok has a $2 million purse of prizes. I already picked mine! Register a FREE account and you can give it a shot here.

 

#3. The Events (aka ‘workouts’)

Bare Knuckles Weightlifting Meet Recap

A badass pic of our girls before they started lifting.

On June 29th, 2018 we held a weightlifting meet. It was meant to be about lifting weights, on the tarmac, in the sunset, and with some good people. Mission accomplished! Among all that, there were lessons learned about how the sport of weightlifting works, including how judges expect the athlete to lift the weight. Also, we learned how to warm up for a max lift and recover in between sessions. Thanks and excellent job to all our athletes that came out. Thank you Brandon, Nicole, and Dave for judging. Thank you Sam for all the awesome pictures!

Here are some highlight pics:

Yoga on the Tarmac

    

A huge thank you to everyone that came out to Yoga on the Tarmac on June 21st. We had over 120 people in the soft sunset getting flexy with us. The VIBES were amazing! Thanks to John, Brittany, and Cat from CorePower Yoga North Denver for putting it on. Thanks also to Sam Conley for the amazing pictures. You can see the rest of the album here.

The final Yoga on the Tarmac session is on Thursday, July 19th 7:30-8:30pm. RSVP here.
