Well, we made it! Five weeks of events and many, many more weeks of training to work towards them. So many PRs! So many expectations surpassed! Our first Invitational was a blast. It was so cool to see everyone push themselves to the next level.
Let’s talk about event 5’s results.
We wanted the final event to be a real doozy. For virtual, this meant burpees of course. I mean, really, who didn’t see burpees coming? Here are the top 5 individual scores:
Great job everyone. Garrett is a very fast human being, but he works here, so yet again he doesn’t get the GOLD. That goes to Elly Fireside-Ostergaard this week. Congrats on winning this event, Elly!
Here’s how the top team rankings shook out for event 5:
|Labor and Deliverance||71|
|Moll ‘N Stein||65|
|Drop Deadlift Gorgeous||65|
|Ewan / Megan||58|
Great work everyone! You’ve all got some serious lungs.
For the final indoor event we wanted another doozy. At first we considered the 20RM back squat. We worked on a 20RM several years ago, TO GREAT FANFARE. However, we’d been focusing more on big squat sets in the hypertrophy range, and 20 reps is getting into endurance territory. So we cut it back to a 10RM. Still certainly something to write home about! Past the 5th or 6th rep it becomes a real mental exercise. Great job everyone!
Here’s the top 10 squatters this week, and the weight they squatted. Scores were based on percentage of bodyweight.
Another Garrett who works here in the top spot?! Amazing. Congrats to Max Poessnecker for nabbin’ the real #1 spot.
The top 5 teams were as follows:
