Dave Castro shows what many of us were feeling when 18.4's new handstand press up target line was announced!

The barbell started heavy and got heavier whilst the gymnastics skills started hard and got harder - a classic Open workout for everyone to take part in at last Friday's main event.  This week saw PBs all over the place with people getting inverted and having a great time with their friends.

Team Aromas scored 64 performance points and 28 judging points this week for a total of 92, with Sophie P leading from the front with 8 (4+4), closely followed by Antonio who chipped in 6 (3+3).

Team Madison managed to pick up 59 points this week, with 50 of those coming from performances.  Sam L was the top scorer with 5 (4+1).

Team Carson extended their lead during 18.4 by adding 96 points to their total, made up of 63 from performances and 33 from judging!  Joint top scorers were Clem and Emma Mc who both contributed 6 points - and Emma's were ALL from judging!

Team Madison = 301 points

IM Open Team Scores 18.3

For 18.3, Dave Castro's Instagram clue was no less cryptic than any of his other ones, and still now people are wondering what on earth two flowers in a mug really has to do with the workout that he gave us for last week!  Two rounds = two flowers?  That's all we've got though!  And if the best athletes in the world aren't making it through two rounds in the 14 minute cap, we know that we're going to be in for a bumpy ride.  When the scaled version of the workout has pull ups in it, you can either run scared or tackle it head on and get that chin over that bar - the many pull up PBs on Friday night made the atmosphere even more electric.

And now, the Intramural Open scores and 18.3 MVPs.....

Team Carson earned a huge 102 points this week, with a week high of 33 coming from judging.  Paul R and Hannah L did their best to get on top of the team podium by contributing 9 points each, but captain Zuber was in the gym from 1430-1930 helping out, judging for anyone who needed a judge and being a force for good, and so earning 10 points!  

Team Madison brought home 72 points in week three, with 46 of them coming from their strong performances.  Their 8 point MVP was serial-bonus-point-earner Joe R who, despite being injured, was in the gym both in the morning and the evening to help judge and provide (quiet) support to all his fellow SCCFers.

Team Aromas had two joint top points scorers for 18.3 with Ben P and Sara F both earning 7 points with their standout performances in amongst the team total of 82 for the week, of which 65 were from completing the workout.

The scores after three weeks of friendly, intense competition now stand at:

Team Carson - 294

Team Aromas - 265

Team Madison - 249

This week Dave Castro threw everyone into the fire with a deceiving couplet of dumbbell squats and bar facing burpees.  And that was just for starters.  That was the buy in to be able to demonstrate how much you'd been working on your weightlifting over the past 12 months - if you didn't have the lungs then you didn't get to play with that barbell!

And without further ado, on to the scores and MVPs from the Intramural Open teams, Madison, Carson and Aromas.

Team Aromas scored the most performance points of the three teams this week with 74, but only picked up 21 for judging which moves their grand total up to 183.  Their biggest scorers for the week were Ben P with 8 and Sara F with 7 - both highlighting the benefits to the team total of getting involved in some friendly head to head competition regardless of the actual result!

Team Madison's points total was massively boosted by Joe R (10) and Katie B (8), who both came in on Monday evening to judge, load bars and cheer people on despite being injured and unable to actually complete the workout - those 5 bonus points each were included in the team judging total of 35 which when added to the team performance total of 67 moves their grand total up to 177.

Team Carson, despite team captain Zuber accidentally claiming a 410lb clean on 18.2a, earned the most points in total for week 2 with 103, which moves their grand total up to 192!  If only Zuber's maths was as good as his team spirit and work ethic which he scored 9 for!  Special bonus points were also awarded to Helen C who came in on Sunday to help judge, did the workout on Monday morning AND came back in on Monday evening to judge, cheer, help out with bars AND provide a selection of delicious cakes (Joe R also deserves a mention for his role in the cake provision).
