Dave Lipson and Rob Orlando

Rogue Vs AF Tahoe Throwdown

Tahoe Event Four: Twenty Back Squats For Time

Dave Lipson Calls Out Rob Orlando

Score After 3 Events:
Rogue: 2
Again Faster: 2

After Chris Spealler and Pat Barber's tie in Event Three, Team Rogue and Team Again Faster were awarded a point each, remaining tied in overall points.

With Event Four, Team Again Faster played to its strong suits by putting Dave Lipson up with a heavy barbell challenge.

Event Four:
For time:
225 lb Back Squat, 20 reps

Both athletes would take the bar from the ground to behind their necks to start the workout.

Team Rogue chose their strongest athlete, Rob Orlando, to go up against Dave. Dave is larger and stronger than Rob, with a 550 lb. squat to Rob's 475, but Dave sometimes has trouble with range of motion. Incomplete reps would be devastating to his time.

Event Four was very intense, with Dave and Rob standing face to face as they raced to complete the squats. Both athletes completed all 20 squats in under 40 seconds.

It's good to see Dave Lipson come out of nowhere in the last year or so and go up against my favorite athlete, Rob Orlando. I really didn't expect these events to be so close.
