Event 3 Recap

Event 3 came down to strategy.
Most teams shared the same one: hit a round each with 65lbs, and leave two teammates behind while running with the 25lbs plates. But the key would be WHICH teammates ran with the 25s.
Many opted for their men to carry the heavier plates while the women went to work on 65lbs. With a quick turnover, this strategy worked well; but one team reversed the order.
It paid off.
The Adrenaline Junkies sent Sachia and Jess back out the door while Kubis and Andrew went to work, cycling the 65lbs bar rapidly through the first six minutes. Though each rep was worth only one point, they moved quickly enough to amass a decent lead before changing weights. While the girls sat, Kubis and Andrew cycled the 95lbs bar, safe in their points cushion established earlier. Jess jumped in for 3 reps to give them a break, but the boys showed tremendous work capacity and pushed until there was only 3 seconds left. They won by 13 points, which is a huge spread considering second, third and fourth were separated by a TOTAL of two points (Sheep: 102; Hensons: 102; Mules: 100.)
The Sheep, Junkies and Hensons also won their heats. Meanwhile, the Appleseeds dropped into third with a no-show, but they’ll definitely be back next week and revved up to challenge for the top spot.
