September 19 has arrived. Time to throw down...

9/19/12

We are part of an amazing CrossFit community and I have to say that we exemplify that here at Crossfit Eaton.  We compete, push, motivate, "challenge", pick each other up, hold each other accountable.  It's hard to find what we have.  Let's help some folks who maybe need that camaraderie the most.  Some friends of mine, Taylor and Blake Montey are opening Colorado's first "Steve's Club" here in Colorado.  "Steve’s Club and its participating members provide a national network of programs through which at-risk or underserved youth of any socioeconomic background can join in the CrossFit Community at a reduced, low or no cost structure."  Now the way I understand it, typically all monies raised for Steve's Club get sent into the National headquarters and then redistributed amongst the dozen or so affiliates.  However, to get "Steve's Club Battleready" off the ground, all monies raised from this first fundraiser they do will go directly to the local chapter, run by Taylor and Blake, which will be based out of Denver.

Today, we're giving you guys the opportunity to help.  During our regular class we're doing the following WOD:

2 PERSON TEAMS
AMRAP 10 MIN:

40 KB Swings (1.5pd, 54#/1 pd, 36#)
30 Burpees
20 Pullups (Competitive: Chest to Bar Pullups, Social: Jumping pullups)
10 Squats (Competitive: Front Squats 135#/95#, Social: Air Squats)

One person working at a time.  Score is total number of reps in 10 min.

Rules

Teams of 2, can be M/M, M/F, F/F, Youth/M, Youth/F, Youth/Youth.  

To be eligible for National Prizes, the WOD must be done as prescribed.  

Prescribed (Rx'd) for Teen boys = Women's weights, Teen girls = 60% of Teen boys (get as close as possible, ok if it's not exact).  

All reps of one exercise must be done before moving to the next exercise.  

One person is allowed to do all the reps of a given exercise, if so desired.

*THIS IS A TEAM COMPETITION.  PRIZES WILL BE AWARDED TO THE TOP COMPETITVE TEAM AND THE TOP YOUTH TEAM. 

**The suggested donation for the WOD is $25/person.  There are two ways to donate.  Either go to crossfitbattleready.com, register and donate or just bring some ching tomorrow.  We'll have a bucket set up and I will hand deliver the sum to Taylor and Blake.

***This is gonna be a fun WOD you guys!  Pick your teammate.  C and I are teaming up and we'd like to throw out this friendly little challenge.  For any and all teams that beat us (rx'd of course-Britton), we'll donate $25 of our own money, in your teams name, to this cause!  Help make what you have here available to some less fortunate youth out there!
