Today is the second workout of our 3-week September Showdown.
We have divided the gym into two super teams based on our median weight. Everyone below the median weight is on team WOD SLAYERS and all of us above the median weight are on team RIG SHAKERS.
You can earn points for your team in the following ways:
1 point for showing up to do the workout on Monday.
2 points for getting a PR.
3 points for doing something for the first time, e.g. pull-up, toes to bar, etc.
3 points for being in the top 3 Rx or Scaled.
So - all you have to do is show up and do the workouts for the next 3 Mondays and you earn a point for your team. How cool is that?
Competitions are a great time to test our fitness, smash through plateaus, and expand our boundaries. Competition is culmination of our training and practice.
“I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.'” - Muhammad Ali
Eight WOD Slayers finished in the Top 3 Rx'd and Scaled and only 4 Rig Shakers finished in the Top 3 in last week's September Showdown Workout #1. This gave the WOD Slayers a 12 point lead. However, 3 of the 4 first place finishers are Rig Shakers.
Each team had 3 people who got a PR earning 6 points for each team.
Here are the top scorers for each team.
Sixteen WOD Slayers completed last week's workout compared to 14 Rig Shakers. Last week's workout scored extra points for barbell weights. You earned 5 points if you deadlifted your bodyweight, 4 points for 3/4 BW, 3 points for 1/2 BW and 2 points for 1/4 BW.
Seven WOD Slayers deadlifted their bodyweight, 5 folks deadlifted 3/4 BW, 3 folks deadlifted 1/2 BW and no one deadlifted 1/4 BW. This gave the WOD Slayers a 10 point lead for a total of 67 points.
Six Rig Shakers deadlifted their bodyweight, 4 deadlifted 3/4 BW, 3 deadlifted 1/2 BW and 1 deadlifted 1/4 BW for a total of 57 points.
Will the Rig Shakers make up their 24 point deficit today?
