2022 Syndicate Crown Overall Leaderboard

The first-ever Syndicate Crown individual competitions proved the importance of consistency and athletes playing to their strengths. Over three days of competition, the top 10 athletes — five women and five men — battled it out for their tickets to Madison, WI.

Athletes completed six workouts over the high-energy weekend, testing everything from their max strength to their ability to go, go, and go some more. While the Barbell Complex brought out the competitors’ prowess with Olympic lifting strength, Skiing With Karen offered a brutal test of strength and endurance with an ascending rep scheme across multiple full-body moves.
