Tahoe Event Four: Twenty Back Squats For Time
Dave Lipson Calls Out Rob Orlando
With Event Four, Team Again Faster played to its strong suits by putting Dave Lipson up with a heavy barbell challenge.
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.
