Join me, Coach Meriah, this Saturday at 9 AM out on the tarmac! We will be starting at 9 AM with a snatch session building up to a heavy one rep max.

The sessions will go from 9 AM until 11 AM at our Broomfield location. We will be out in the sun so dress accordingly (or undress appropriately…?), wear sun block if needed, a snack to you keep your energy up, water to stay hydrated, and bring any adult beverages to celebrate your PR’s when you’re done! Sam will be there to take pictures, so please join us for some fun lifting in the sun!

Join me, coach Meriah for a Super Saturday session out on the tarmac! Our Barbell WOD cycle has come to an end, and it’s time to max out our lifts. We’ll start around 9 am with a snatch session (20-40min) work up to a max effort. When we aren’t lifting we’re cheering our friend to hit big weights! You’ll take a short break, maybe eat a snack, stay hydrated, watch some of the big go down, and then be ready to hit a heavy C&J! We’ll be outside so dress accordingly, and as weightlifters you’re probably going to want some sunscreen! I’ll bring a small stash of adult beverages to celebrate victories afterward! Feel free to bring your own, and anything else you’d like! If you have any questions, contact me email@example.com! Also be sure to checkout our MBS Strength group for updates as well!

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.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org, on how to get started, training, technique, or any other questions about these events or weightlifting!
