Gearing Up for the Colorado Springs Spartan Sprint/Beast

spartan group

Here we go again! We will be hosting a 6-week training program to prepare you for the Colorado Springs Spartan Super/Sprint on May 14 & 15th.

 

MBS Spartan X Training Program

In just over 6 weeks on May 14-15th, Spartan Races is coming to Ft. Carson army base in Colorado Springs to host a “Super” (8-10 mile) and “Sprint” (3-5 mile) obstacle course. The obstacle courses feature 20-30 obstacles that will test your endurance, perseverance and grit. While the obstacles, many times are unknown till the day of the race, you can expect things like mud pits, barbed wire, hill sprints, cargo nets, high walls, and of course, the SPEAR THROW!

These courses are fun…Well, that sort of “fun” that’s fun when it’s over. You may end up with some bumps and bruises, and you’ll likely not be in the top 10 (there are actually professional Obstacle Course Racers ), but you will have done something hard. It will make your Monday morning meeting with bosses seem like a cakewalk. The best part will be the training leading up to the race.

Every Sunday from 1:00-2:30 pm, we will be running a Spartan X training session. Prepare your body for the 40-80 minute race time, learn how to scale walls, crawl under barbed wire, climb cargo nets, race up hills, and throw a spear! Bring a water bottle, wear some workout clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty, and of course, a winning attitude.

Also included:
– Weekly programming posted for all participants on Facebook group
– Nutrition, recovery, and stretching guidance during training
– 20% discount on race registration using the code “MBS”

Coaches:
– Pat Burke, Owner of MBS CrossFit and 6x CrossFit Games competitor
– Zach Vogel, SGX Certified Spartan Coach and avid Spartan race competitor

Paleo Performance Nutrition Challenge

Paleo Performance Nutrition Challenge

Due to the great response we received during our last challenge, and the interest coming from all of you, we have decided to run another challenge!  Click here and join us February 29th to kick off a 30 day paleo challenge, ending March 31st.  The challenge is based on performance to help you during the CrossFit Open.  However, as one athlete explains it, Going to the gym is 10 times more enjoyable when you hit PR’s and this challenge helped me hit a lot.  So “…For Performance” to me meant, “… for making working out more fun,”  “…for being proud of yourself more often,”  “…for seeing significant improvement in a relatively short time span”

 

During the challenge you will be guided through clean eating for optimum health and performance.

Challenge Highlights:

  • Kick-off nutrition meeting, February 29th @ 7pm
  • Nutrition challenge info packet
  • Pre/Post challenge testing (weight, pictures, workout)
  • FaceBook nutrition page and web page for online coaching and accountability
  • Good foods vs. Poor foods
  • Meal planning and prepping
  • Food options and timing
  • Basic Micronutritients
  • Lifestyle habits for optimum health
  • Recovery
  • Paleo potluck party, and much more…

While receiving guidance in these areas, you will also receive support from the MBS Nutrition Team, as well as fellow athletes.

The challenge is not just based on nutrition, but on all areas of life, as described by one athlete, It feels great to eat well and work out but going beyond that makes it seem all encompassing – like my life – and how I’m spending it – is improving.”

During the challenge we have seen major changes and accomplishments.  One athlete improved their test workout by 35%.  Another lost 15 hard-to-lose pounds.  Another changed their stress levels and is excited about a healthier lifestyle and happier home life.  There are many other reasons to join this challenge, and everyone has their own goals, but there is no reason not to join.

So what are you waiting for, sign up today and dial in your nutrition during the open and preform better then ever before!  Non-members are welcome! 

 Go to www.wellnessfactorynutrition.com to sign up.

Members pay $35.00
Non-Members pay $45.00

Saturday Snatch Clinic with Coach Meriah!

IMG_2403 Sam got a private lesson last week and she wanted to work on her Olympic lifting! We broke down the positions of the snatch and worked on cues that she could use when working on her own! In just an hour we made some great progress in making her much more efficient and confident in her lifts. I can’t wait to see what she can do next!

Want to work on your snatch technique? Join me (coach Meriah) this Saturday at our Arvada location from 9-10am for a snatch clinic! We’ll be breaking down the snatch and in prep for the 2016 Reebok CrossFit Open ( you’ve signed up right?)  and reviewing the differences in technique for lifting a max effort vs cycling lightweights for reps. Or what to do if you have to complete a lot of reps near your one rep max (dun, dun, dun!). Cost is $20 for the clinic, you can sign up at the link here! If you’d like to pay cash, please contact meriah@mbscrossfit.com as space is limited! This does mean that the 9am weightlifting class at our Broomfield is cancelled, but you can join us after the clinic for an hour of lifting there! See you Saturday!
