#CurlsForJesse: CrossFit Total + The Beer Mile Competition

On 31 August (Saturday) at 9:30AM-12:00PM, we will have a friendly competition to help J Dawg with the medical expenses of his bicep surgery. This competition will have 2 Events. The CrossFit Total. The Beer Mile. You can participate in just the CrossFit Total or just The Beer Mile, but you will be ineligible for prizes. Teams must stay the same throughout the competition. 

 

Event #1: CrossFit Total

CrossFit Total Rules

1RM Back Squat 

1RM Strict Press

1RM Deadlift (Double Overhand / Conventional Only)

Overall Basics: We will follow the rules (in the link above) with a couple of changes. Individuals/Teams have 45 minutes (total time) to find your 1RM in all 3 lifts. Time can be divided as each team/individual decides. Lifts must stay in order (Back Squat / Strict Press / Deadlift). Gear: Raw Standards. Belts, Wrist Wraps, Sleeves, Tall Socks (Deadlift). No Straps. You may change your shoes for each lift. Teams are allowed 1 barbell per team.  Teammates do not have to stay in a particular order, but once one lift is finished, they cannot return to it if time allows. 

 

Event #2: The Beer Mile

The Beer Mile Rules

4 Rounds: 

Drink a Beer

400M Run

Overall Basics: We will follow the rules above. BYOB for all teams (12oz cans or larger). If you do not bring your own beer, CFWT will supply some for you, but I can promise you it will not be good. Don’t drink? It is okay. Do the beer mile with La Croix. Just remember, these 12 ounce curls are for J Dawg. It is every man/woman for his/herself – teams will follow the individual rules for The Beer Mile. If you are on a team, all teammates will get an individual time for the beer mile. Those times will be added together for your score. There is a 400M penalty at the end for puking. 

 

Prizes: TBD & the satisfaction that J Dawg can flex again.

 

Team / Individual Ticket Options: 

Individual Athlete (M/F)

Teams of 2 (MM / FF / MF)

Teams of 4 (MMMM / FFFF / MMFF)

As a team or individual you can do the CrossFit Total Only or The Beer Mile Only if you do not want to participate in both events. 

 

Ticket Prices: 

Entire Event: $40.00 per person (team or individual)

CrossFit Total Only: $30.00 per person (team or individual)

The Beer Mile Only: $30.00 per person (team or individual).

DESCRIPTION

This is a competition that will test your absolute limits. You must combine strength, technique and mental fortitude to amass the best total across all 5 lifts (Snatch, Clean & Jerk, Squat, Bench and Deadlift). The question is, do you have what it takes to win the game and be crowned Lord of the Lifts?

You want the juicy details?

The weekend of February 15-16, 2020 will start with a sanctioned USA Weightlifting meet on Saturday followed by a Powerlifting meet on Sunday. Athletes must compete in both meets to earn a Super Total and be eligible for prize packages. And trust us, you want these prizes.

This year we are excited to announce we will have a Female & Male Youth Division. To be eligible for the Youth Division prizes, athletes must be under the age of 15 at time of competition. ALL youth lifters will compete during the women’s session. When registering for the event, please purchase a Female contender ticket. Minimum lift attempt is 11.7kg.

We’ll have music, food, an amazing announcer and a full recovery area, staffed by the best in Denver.

We have opened up a few spots for lifters that only want to compete in one of the comptetitions, but these are meant to be for people who need totals for a specific qualification purpose, so just do the whole damn thing. Thanks.

Sponsorship slots are exclusive. For sponsorship info, click to my right. info@denverbarbellclub.com.

If Lord of the Lifts fills up, don’t be alarmed. Just sign up to be on the waitlist via Eventbrite and if a spots opens up we will notify you.

***Bonus*** If you volunteer, you’ll receive a badass swag for all of your efforts and maybe even some doughnuts; everybody loves doughnuts.
