2017 Nutrition Challenge at MBS CrossFit

Our Biggest Nutrition Challenge of the Year!

This fall MBS is participating in the Lurong Championship Challenge, which is a nation-wide challenge that combines diet, fitness, and accountability in a competitive community driven environment.

MBS In-House Competition- It’s Lift Off Time Again!!!

MBS CrossFit In-House Competition

What: Individual competition. Age category divisions (see below for further clarification). Competition will test 3 workouts: CrossFit Total, Lift Up for Luke Autism Awareness WOD Learn More Here , and a third workout to round out the testing. Open to members of both the Hangar and the Deuce. We had a blast last year and we are certain that it will be even better this year.  Our goal is to FUN and to celebrate all of the hard work our athletes put in the gym day in and day out.

When: Saturday, September 9th from 9-1pm

Where: MBS CrossFit Broomfield at the Hangar

Who: All MBS CrossFit members

Details: The competition is mostly for fun, hanging out, getting cheered on, and cheering on your friends. But, we will still have everything organized and run on time and of course, judges to make sure all our reps are legit. We are keeping this to MBS only, so you don’t need to worry about being embarrassed or anything. No matter your skill or experience level, you are welcome to join us. You are welcome to invite family and friends to come hang out and watch. Bring your own snacks and drinks as you wish.

Registration is $35 and includes a t-shirt. You must register by August 25 to be guaranteed a shirt.

Register online  Register Here

Note – At registration, it will ask for your squat starting weight. This is needed for us to group ability levels better for the CrossFit Total. If you read through the rules of the CF Total, you will see that the rules are that you will have 3 attempts on each of squat, press, and deadlift. No more. Your first attempt should be something you know you can do, but still pretty heavy. Your second attempt will be more of a challenge. Your final attempt is usually reserved for a new PR. 

Divisions:

We will be awarding top male/female (with awesome prizes) in the following age categories*:

0-29 years

30-39 years

40-49 years

50+ years

This is for the age you will be on the day of the competition.

Scaling:

Of the 3 workouts, one workout will consist of movements that may require scaling (ie; pullups, double unders). The CF Total and the final workout will NOT require scaling, you just do what you can do. We will have a listed scaling option for the chipper workout, and for anyone that scales a movement, they will be placed behind the last Rx person.

For example:

Person A scores: 650 on CF Total, 5 Rounds on the chipper (as Rx’d, no scaling), and 1:24 on the 3rd workout. (Placing in workouts was 15th + 9th + 7th = 31 pts)

Person B scores: 700 on CF Total, 6 Rounds on chipper (scaled double unders to 2x singles), and 1:10 on the 3rd workout. (Placing in workouts was 10th +18th + 1st = 29 pts)

Person A has a total of 31 pts. Person B has a total of 29 pts and places ahead of Person A.  Person A did the workout as Rx (no scaling), but didn’t do as well on workouts 1 and 3. Person B did scale the chipper workout and placed behind the last Rx person, but did well enough on workouts 1 and 3 that they still have the lead.

This is only a hypothetical example, but the point is that you can scale the workout and still place high, assuming your other abilities are strong. So, NO EXCUSES!! Sign up and have some fun with us!
