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).
