The Santa Cruz County Affiliate Cup will be held at CrossFit West on Sunday, October 19th. There are four separate divisions, with all team members training at the same affiliate and legitimately belonging in their division. Here are the nuts and bolts:
RX Division: 4 person teams consisting of 2 men and 2 women.
Open Division: 4-6 person teams consisting of at least 2 men and 2 women.
40+ Division: 4-6 person teams consisting of at least 2 men and 2 women who turn 40 on or before 10/19/14.
55+ Division: 4-6 person teams consisting of at least 2 men and 2 women who turn 55 on or before 10/19/14.
The cost to participate is $40 per person and that includes the annual shirt.
Alright CrossFit West, let’s get some teams together and rock this thing. The Affiliate Cup is one of the high points of the Santa Cruz County CrossFit experience and grows in stature and fun each year. This is the competition for everyone who ever wanted to try their hand at a fun little friendly CrossFit comp but were a little intimidated to enter a big comp over the hill. In short, it’s for you! If I still haven’t convinced you to participate, we will need plenty of volunteers and judges.
We will get some sign up sheets on the front desk ASAP. You guys get some teams together ASAP. If you want to compete, but don’t have a team, let us know ASAP. That’s a lot of ASAPs, I know, but the Cup is a mere months away and it’s going to come at us fast.
These Soviet monsters show what a flat back looks like. Besides the fact that Ivanchenko’s back looks like something from a Marvel comic, I like the photo of Rigert the best. Ivanchenko is under load, but Rigert is on his way down to set up for his lift and his back is still perfectly in extension. Remember his photo the next time you set up for a lift, or pick up a kettlebell, or your bag, or kid, or pull anything up. And, you have got to admit, Rigert’s striped lifting shirt is pretty sweet.
