November 17 – Masters and Middle Ground
November 18 – Elite, Scaled, Teens, Battle Of The Brands
The second edition of our popular mixed pairs event. 2017 saw some of the best teams to be seen on the same UK event floor duel it out over a day of gruelling competition. 2018 looks set to see the competition grow, with the addition of more categories. Teams will complete three online qualifiers in a bid to be invited to the November finals.
Our competition is suitable for everyone from first time competitors to those who have been to Regionals. Movement standards for these categories will appear further down this page.
Scaled – First time athletes or those quite new to competing. There will not be any technical movements. Weights will be below those in benchmark workout. Athletes should still move with integrity.
Middle Ground – Between the two athletes, they should be capable of intermediate technical movements including chest to bar (male), pull ups, toes to bar, HSPU, double unders. Barbell cycling will be at weights around those seen in benchmark workouts.
Elite – Between the two elite athletes, the team should be comfortable performing most technical movements, and will be capable of barbell cycling at and above benchmark weights.
– Combined 75+, minimum age 35. Minimum combined age of 75 years on 17/11/18. Elite and Middle Ground categories. Standards will mirror those seen in the opn age divisions.
– Combined 85+, minimum age 40. Minimum combined age of 85+ on 17/11/18. Elite and Middle Ground categories. Technical movements will mirror those seen in open age categories. Weights will be scaled as we see fit.
Teens – Athletes in the teens division must be below the age of 18. Standards in this division will be similar to that seen in Middle Ground, with some reduction in weights where we see necessary.
Elite and Middle Ground categories will be required to record their workouts and submit a link to a publicly available video upload
Scaled athletes will have the choice of recording their workout, or having it judged by a coach/qualified judge. If they choose the latter option, they will need to submit contact details for that person so we can verify scores should we wish.
You can move up or down categories at any point until qualifier one starts.
After qualifier one starts, you may only move to a higher category.
In both cases, the quickest way to contact us is via social media on the links in our website footer
