MBS Weightlifting Meet_10 17 15_4712_edited-1

Last week I posted the video of some of the highlights of the Olympic trials.  While the big events are very exciting, local meets are also a ton of fun to watch!  In fact local events are great events to train for!  Just like your local CF competition, or Spartan race there are lots of local competitions for ALL levels and ages!  If you want to train or watch, you’re in luck! There are a few coming up on the horizon and including a very special event in June.

First up the 2nd Annual Mile High Olympic Day Weightlifting Open -This competition is open to USAW members of all skill levels and abilities. Last year’s event saw everyone from a 152-pound woman snatching 216 pounds, an 11-year-old, 76-year-old all lifting! This year’s event will be extra special as it  will be held outside (weather permitting), and will have 2 National referees, making this meet a qualifier for the 2016 World Masters Weightlifting Championships in Germany in October as well as for the 2016 University/U25 National Championships in Baton Rouge, LA, in September and the 2016 American Open in December in Orlando, FL. Click on each of the title for the qualifying totals for these events. BTW Masters in weightlifting begins the year you turn 35 and a new category begins every 5 years there after and you compete within your weight class within that age group! Click on the link above on to learn more about American Master’s Weightlifting (events, records, and more!). To register for the Mile High Meet here www.regonline.com/2016MileHighOpen.

Also coming up later this summer is the Rocky Mountain State Games in Colorado Springs, CO. July 23rd & 24th this meet is a bit bigger and a lot of fun! I’ll have more information on this event as it draws nearer.  If you’d like to train either of these events with the goal of qualifying for something higher or just for fun, please contact me (Coach Meriah) at meriah@mbscrossfit.com, on how to get started, training, technique, or any other questions about these events or weightlifting!

Memorial Day “Murph”

When: Monday, May 30th. A group warm up will begin at 9:15 am.

Where: Broomfield Commons Park. See Map.

We are so excited to be hosting our annual “Murph” workout in the Broomfield community alongside the Broomfield Veterans Museum and Rotary Club’s annual ceremony and picnic on Memorial Day at Broomfield Commons Park in Broomfield. This event is open to MBS friends and family.

“Murph”

For time:
1 mile Run
100 Pull-ups
200 Push-ups
300 Squats
1 mile Run

The “Murph” workout is in memory of Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, N.Y., who was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005.

This workout was one of Mike’s favorites and he’d named it “Body Armor”. From here on it will be referred to as “Murph” in honor of the focused warrior and great American who wanted nothing more in life than to serve this great country and the beautiful people who make it what it is.

Partition the pull-ups, push-ups, and squats as needed. Start and finish with a mile run. If you’ve got a twenty pound vest or body armor, wear it.

We encourage first-timers to scale and/or modify movements as needed…Or, to do the workout in a team!

Following our workout, Broomfield Veteran’s Museum and Rotary Club will be hosting their annual Picnic and Ceremony from 11-1PM, which will include displays, local music, and food.

Please RSVP yourself and any friends and family that may join here: https://www.facebook.com/events/213002372410795/

MBS Nutrition will be your sensei, guiding you through the process with helpful videos, tips, recipes, activities and support.
