Dawn and her team at the Summer Crush at Snowmass.
I’ve made some updates to the In House comp on Saturday, September 10th…
After rolling this over in my head numerous times, I felt that something was missing with our previous idea of having a standard “Rx” and “Scaled” competition. What I felt was missing, and that I want to have FUN with, is the celebration, camaraderie, and competition between our various age groups at MBS!
We are not your standard CF gym with tons of college kids running around. We’ve always noticed that our demographic is very broad and we actually have a bit of an ‘older’ (aka cooler) group here at MBS. So, let’s play to that…let’s call each other out and see where we stand within our division…for fun of course!
Ok, so I made this change.
Instead of Rx and Scaled divisions, we are doing the following age divisions and will be awarding the top male and female in each:
Maybe in future years when we get a bunch more people signing up, we can break out the teens and 60+ categories, but for now I think this will break our group up quite well and we’ll get to see how everyone stacks and have a good time.
And, the next update is Workout #2 announcement!
So, we have…
WOD 1 – CrossFit Total (please read this article, as it explains the lifts and the rules). We are using Sinclaire method of scoring, which bases your Total score on bodyweight. So, if you’re strong for your size, you are going to be well off!
WOD 2 – “LUKE”
5 MIN AMRAP
4 Power Cleans: 155 lbs. men/105 lbs. women
24 Double Unders
Scaled – Do 115/775 lb. power clean, 50 singles, and jumping pullups.
This workout is being done in conjunction with the Lift Up Autism fundraiser that a ton of other CF gyms are doing on the same day. If you want to donate to that cause and get a sweet t-shirt, you can sign up HERE and say you’re participating at MBS CrossFit. We will also have a donation jar at the gym on the day of the event and be making a group donation.
WOD 3 is still to be announced…stay tuned for that.
Ok, competition is on Saturday, September 10th, 9-1pm…About 4 weeks away. There’s still plenty of time to get yourself tuned up to strut your stuff in your age division…
Cost for our in house comp is $35 and includes shirt and prizes for the winners. If you want to donate to the Lift Up Autism event as well, you can go here to get shirt and/or donate, or you can just bring a donation to the gym on the day of our event.
Here’s our link to sign up on Zen Planner… REGISTER HERE. You must register by the 26th to get a shirt!
