Remember when Dave Castro hinted at a team event with a dry erase marker and six plastic figurines? Well, the details of that event has finally been released. But before the event details, the event is scheduled for Saturday afternoon at 2:30pm in the Coliseum.

The event is a bit complicated and there is definitely some strategy involved. Here are the details of the event:

Pair 1 completes:
16 synchro bar muscle-ups
50 synchro GHD sit-ups
Then, pair 2 completes:
20 synchro bar muscle-ups
50 synchro GHD sit-ups
Then, pair 3 completes:
24 synchro bar muscle-ups
50 synchro GHD sit-ups

Then, MF pair 1 completes 2 rounds of:
15/10-cal Assault Bike
8 partner deadlifts, 545 lb.
Then, MF pair 2 completes 2 rounds of:
15/10-cal Assault Bike
10 partner deadlifts, 545 lb.
Then, MF pair 3 completes 2 rounds of:
15/10-cal Assault Bike
12 partner deadlifts, 545 lb.

Time Cap: 21 minutes

The strategic part comes in the first section where the pairs can be any combination of athletes for the first couplet, but the second couplet must be split into male/female.
