Please join us at Mission Bay’s De Anza Cove on Saturday June 8th at 8:00 a.m. for a high energy, gut busting, metabolic work out to celebrate the beginning of our Summer Challenge!
The CrossFit 619 Summer Challenge will have two parts and we highly encourage you to participate in both. We will have a Personal Record (PR) and Nutrition challenge. Each challenge will have a $10 buy in ($20 for both) and will run for 4-weeks – June 8th until July 6th.
The Personal Record (PR) Challenge
The PR challenge will include three areas of athletic performance: 1) 3 rep max (lbs.) on CrossFit and Olympic lifting movements, 2) endurance, and 3) max repetitions. To be fair, we will be calculating and using the averaged percentage change on: a) your top three CrossFit/Oly movements, b) your top two endurance times, c) and top max repetitions. For clarity, top = highest percentage change.
In preparation for the summer challenge, spend this week acquiring your personal records. We will have score sheets for you when you sign up beginning on Saturday June 8th. Please complete your score sheets and return them on July 6th. No need to worry . . . we will do the math!
You will need your 3 rep max (lbs.):
Clean and Jerk
One-armed Dumbbell Snatch
One-armed Dumbbell Clean and Jerk
As well as your time on:
1 mile run
500 meter row
2000 meter row
And max repetitions:
The Nutrition Challenge
The nutrition challenge will include daily food journaling with extra points for the days you consume only food on the Chris Keith Nutrition List: Maintenance Phase, the opportunity to earn points by sharing healthy recipes to be included in future blogs and CrossFit 619 recipe book, and total weight loss percentage (1 pt per percent). We will have score sheets for you when you sign up beginning on Saturday June 8th. Please complete your score sheets and return them on July 6th.
Detailed instructions will be given with your score sheets when you sign-up beginning on Saturday at 8:00 a.m.
