We are having a competition involving the CrossFit Total & The Beer Mile to help with Jesse's surgery expenses! Jesse was competing in the Rocky Mountain State Games USAPL Powerlifting meet. He set a new personal record in Back Squat at 227.5kg (501.5#). He set a new meet personal record in Bench Press at 147.5kg (325.0#). He opened his Deadlift at 235kg (518#). While doing his second Deadlift at 250kg (551# & his current personal record), he ripped his bicep. He ended up getting first in the 120kg weight class, despite his injury. Unfortunately, he had to have surgery to repair the bicep on 9 August. Jesse has been one of the CrossFit WatchTower pillars of our community. In return, we would like to support him to get back to the Powerlifting platform. #curlsforjesse
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
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
Drink a Beer
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.
Entire Event: $40.00 per person (team or individual)
CrossFit Total Only: $30.00 per person (team or individual)
