Every year we like to encourage athletes to dress up for Halloween. This year we are going to offer a prize for the best dressed at each location. Every athlete that dresses up will get their picture taken; then, since it’s Election Season, Staff will create a top 3 list from Arvada & Broomfield and it will be up to y’all to VOTE for your favorite!
We are hoping this brings a little light heartedness to a world that seems a little cloudy lately. Let’s have some fun with this!

3 Upcoming Weightlifting Clinics!

2016nationals-day2-75b-94

Join me, Coach Meriah, for a my last three clinics at MBS before joining my coach and team in Arizona. In pursuit of lifting bigger and heavier weights as a national level weightlifter.  I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to meet and coach you all over the last two years, I hope you join me one last time (ok well three times) and come learn more about the Olympic lifts.  All three clinics will be at MBS II in Arvada.  Below are the dates, and descriptions of each clinic. Working out immediately before hand is not encouraged.  There will be a lot of holding postures, and if you are too beat up from your workout to hold a PVC (or lightweights) in the correct positions, may thwart efforts towards your technique improving.

Clinic #1:  Intro to Olympic Weightlifting
Sunday, September 25th at MBS II from 9:30am-11:30am for an intro to Olympic Weightlifting.  This 2 hour session will cover the snatch and then the clean and jerk.  This a great for beginners for even as a refresher to the more intermediate athlete.  There will be a ton of dills with PVC and minimal weights.  You can RSVP with Meriah at meriah@mbscrossfit.com or sign up and pay at this link here.  $20 for the session.

Clinic #2:  Clean & Jerk
Tuesday, September 27th 6:30pm-8pm at MBS II.  This clinic will build off of Sunday’s clinic a quick review of positions and then more work with drills with light to medium weights.  This clinic will be slightly more advanced than Sundays, but will be great reinforcement from Sunday’s work.  You can RSVP with Meriah at meriah@mbscrossfit.com, cost is $20

Clinic #2:  Snatch
Thursday, September 29th 6:30-8pm at MBS II.  Like tuesday’s C & J clinic days earlier, this too will be a continuation off of Sunday’s work.  More drills and more practice with weights. You can RSVP with Meriah at meriah@mbscrossfit.com, cost is $20

Update to In House Comp – Age divisions!

Summer Crush Snowmass_07 09 16_2594_edited-1

Dawn and her team at the Summer Crush at Snowmass.

Hey everyone,

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:

0-29 years

30-39 years

40-49 years

50+ years

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
10 Pull-Ups

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!

 

 

 

 

Turkey Challenge 2016

The 20-bar Deadlift Ladder at the 2013 Turkey Challenge.

The 20-bar Deadlift Ladder at the 2013 Turkey Challenge.

Save the date!!!

The 7th annual MBS CrossFit Turkey Challenge is drawing near. Registration is planned to open Thursday and Friday, September 19th & 20th for teams and individuals. If you’ve been around, you know it sells out quickly….The competition is on November 18-20th.

As in year’s past, we will have Pro and Open Individuals and Teams. The Pro spots are limited, and it’s generally required that all athletes can do muscle ups, HSPU’s, and heavier weights…including all athletes of the team (see last year’s load list).

Last year we had a master’s team division kick things off for us on Friday night. We are considering doing it again and would love to hear your feedback if that and/or a teens division would be something worth giving a shot??

Possibility of moving the location???

We are considering moving the venue from it’s home of the last 6 years at the hangar, to larger venue that will offer us some protection from the weather and convenience to our MBS family that is left picking up the mess after every year’s competition. Don’t worry though…the TC will never lose that “original grit” sort of feeling that we’ve always had and makes our competition unique. We will still rock some awesome programming that is sure to test the mental and physical limits of our competitors.

New Title Sponsor???

This year, Nutriforce Sports, changed ownership and we lost our commitment with them to the TC in the process. We are currently looking for Title Sponsorship of the event, which helps fund our Pro athletes purse. We hope to have awesome news for any athletes gunning for top spots.

Lots of changes, but same TC

There you have it…first post of 2016 for the TC. Registration is 6 weeks away. Ready your teams and rally your gym for another awesome year.

We will be posting updates about registration, locations, and other details in the following places:
