Hey Roots Crew!
We learned yesteday that Boulder County will move to Level Red on Friday, November 20th.
In short, we are required to move to 9 person classes. Tomorrow, our team will meet to make a plan and make the needed changes to the schedule.
Please continue to check SugarWOD for up to date information.
Track Down A Pair of Dumbbells
In addition, we also recommend that you track down a set of dumbbells if you want to be prepared for a possible mandatory gym closure.
While we are permitted to be open now, we do feel in some ways that a complete shutdown of gyms is looming. Never fear – we have a great plan in place, should we shut down, to keep your fitness at the forefront of your at-home time!
We will aim to loan out equipment to current members; however, a set of dumbbells goes a long way! In short – you can do everything with a set of DBs (a set of KBs of the same weight will also work great!).
What Weight Should I Get?
Aim to get a set of DBs that makes for a challenging but doable squat when using both dumbbells. The same would apply for a set of KBs.
Another good rule of thumb is to get a set where you could do 15 reps unbroken (one time) with a steady clip when using both dumbbells.
Here are a few places to look for DBs…
With a bit of daily diligence, you’ll be able to track down a set in no time – promise.
- Rogue (new stock is added every day)
- Play it Again Sports Boulder (call first and ask what is in stock, call every day)
- The friend who thought they would do at-home fitness during the first shutdown but never did. Buy their DBs.
Keep getting after it. You got this.
