Time: Saturday, Jan 19 the first flight will kick off at 8:00 am. We try to have it wrapped up by noon!
What goes on: Powerlifting as a sport consists of 3 movements: back squat, bench press and deadlift. You’ll be given 3 attempts at each lift to find the heaviest weight possible. The “score” is the sum of the highest successful lift of each movement.
Chili in January is one of the finer things in life but you already know that. Bring your A game, because I’m bringing mine.
Why you should do it: To set a benchmark. One of the most important aspects of CrossFit is that almost everything we do is measurable and repeatable. That means we can track our progress very thoroughly and this is an awesome way to see where you are in terms of strength at the start of the year. With this in the books, all those “Not to exceed 80% 1RM” notes start to be more useful to you. Plus some sick trophies!
You should do the chili cookoff because the trophy is a spoon. But not just any spoon, a spoon hand carved (by a master craftsman) from a solid oak log that was hewn from a 100 year old tree when it was struck by lightening! Or whatever, you can’t prove it wasn’t.
You can sign up for the meet in Wellness Living. The sign up for the chili cookoff will be on the desk. Deadline to sign up for both will be Tuesday, Jan 15.
