Teamwork makes the dream work!
This year’s competition—as always—will feature a variety of skills and movements, including plenty of endurance-heavy workouts to give any athlete a run for his money. As always, we focus on a competition that is team-oriented and strategically driven. The best teams come out ahead because they know how to use each athlete’s strengths to the advantage of the whole.
There will be three divisions: RX Plus CO-ED ( 2 men/1woman), RX ( 3 men or 3 women), Open ( 3 men or 3 women) Guideline posted on Border Open FB Page or for more information call 915-274-3706. Sponsorships available!!
So What Can Athletes Expect?
The workouts test strength, body weight movements, speed, skills, endurance, and strategy. As we’ve seen the past four years, you’ll have your fair share of Olympic lifts, with a possible combination of pistols, rope climbs, toes to bars, tire flips and so much more. What’s in store this year? You’ll just have to stay tuned and see!!
