EVENT INFO

This event is made up of a 4 week open followed by a 2 week knockout finals series. Once an open workout has been released you will have until the following Thursday at 5pm AEST to enter your submission for review. In order for your submission to be valid, you must upload a video to using the “WeTime app”. Simply download the app for iPhone or Android and select the appropriate timer for each workout.

Open

We will release 1 workout each week of which you can practice as many times as you wish though only submit your best attempt.
Once submitted we will review the video and cross check your time/score against the evidence.

The athlete who places 1st will receive 1 point.
The athlete who places 2nd will receive 2 points.

The athlete who places 80th will receive 80 points.

At the commencement of each week we will update the leaderboard so that athletes know exactly where they stack up against the competition.
Once all 4 workouts have been completed the top 8 athletes with the lowest points in each competition progress through to the finals.

Finals

Hosted over 2 weeks, in week 1 the top 8 will go head to head for a knockout final series with each heat streamed live via instagram. Each pool battle it out over the same workout with the 4 winners progressing through to the grand final.

The following week we bring all 4 remaining athletes together via instagram live for the grand final to decide 1st, 2nd and 3rd.

5 rounds
50 air squats
50 burpees

5 minute AMRAP
10 Push ups
10 Dumbbell snatch

You may, however this will require you to submit a scaled results which will not be comparable against those athletes who have completed the workout with the prescribed weight.

We will be uploading videos and explanations of all workouts but if all else fails don’t hesitate to reach out.
What needs to be included in my video for it to be validated?
In all workout briefs there is a description of the correct standards for video submission. A general rule is, you should make sure the whole movement is visible, show the equipment that you are using e.g dumbbell weight and show any markings/measurements required.
I missed the score submission cut off, Is there anything I can do?
Unfortunately to make sure that it is the competition is fair and can move forward under our timeline any score “NOT” submitted will be invalid.
What if I can not perform the movement prescribed?
Unfortunately there are no scaled options included that will mean your workout could be validated with different movements. You are welcome to scale it yourself to participate understanding that this will nullify that workout’s score.
