Vegas Fit Wars - Here I Come!

Event #1

For time:

While wearing a flak jacket and ballistic helmet, carry a rubber rifle replica and 2 ammo cans weighing 30lbs across the field.
Perform 20 dumbell thrusters and 20 burpees.
Load a wheelbarrow with the two ammo cans, dumbells, and rifle and run it across the field.
Perform 20 dumbell thrusters and 20 burpees.
Reload the wheelbarrow and run it back across the field.
Unload the wheelbarrow and carry the ammo cans and rifle replica back to the original start point.
Take off the flak jacket and ballistic helmet for one final sprint down and back on the field.

The dumbell weight is 35lbs for the men and 25lbs for the women. The wheelbarrow will be loaded with a 45lbs plate for men and a 25lbs plate for women.

The differential will be wearing this flak jacket (it's a bit constricting for breathing and movement). Not worried about running or pushing the wheelbarrow (kinda seems like fun).

Event #2
Weighted Pull-Up Ladder

Every minute, on the minute for 8 minutes, athletes will perform one weighted pull-up. Men will start at 20lbs and increase by 20lbs every minute. Women will start at 5lbs and increase 5lbs every minute. The chin must break the vertical plane of the pull-up bar.

Any grip will be permitted. Kipping is allowed. Chalk and tape are allowed. No assistance straps are allowed.

If an athlete makes it all the way through the ladder, they will perform max reps at the heaviest load in the final minute to further distinguish from a tie.

I like this structure. I do better with "warm-up". My previous 1RM for strict is 12.5# so my goal will be 15 or 20# (not sure how kipping or mixed grip will affect my ability for this movement).

Event #3
Only the top ten men and top ten women will perform this event!
(More details on this event will be released on Saturday)

With a 12 minute time cap:
30 Overhead Squats - 95lbs/65lbs
30 Double Unders
50m Barbell Carry - 115lbs/75lbs
20 Overhead Squats - 115lbs/75lbs
20 Box Jumps - 24"/20"
50m Barbell Carry - 135lbs/95lbs
10 Overhead Squats - 135lbs/95lbs
10 Burpee Box Jumps - 30"/24"
150m Barbell Carry - 135lbs/95lbs

Max reps in the remaining time of "Ground-to-Overhead" - 135lbs/95lbs.

Your score is however many reps you perform of the "Ground-to-Overhead."

My goal is to get into the top 10 cause this looks like FUN (I like OH squats and I like DU). The 24" Burpee Box Jumps will be tough but I've been doing 24" for a month now. G-t-O 95# will be tough for me (the younger gals will be doing snatch, I'll be doing clean & jerk).
