05 Jun 2 Weeks Out from Gauntlet III
2 Weeks out and we’re pumped! Click the links regarding heat/lineup info:
Here’s the lowdown of what to expect:
FRONT SQUAT LADDER:
male – 155/185/225/255/275/315
female – 95/115/135/165/185/205
*You will have 30 seconds to attempt each rung in the ladder, with a 10 second transition period to the next weight. If you fail to perform the lift, you will use remaining the time to deadlift as many reps as possible as the tiebreaker.
** If you successfully complete the ladder, you will move to the finals of the event where there will be a special tournament of champions!
EVENT 2/3: Here are some of the movements you can expect to see:
Toes to bar, HSPU, KB snatch, power clean, deadlift, running, power snatch, and various other surprises! We plan to provide some videos later on regarding judging standards.
This event is for EVERYONE. As it’s getting closer some folks are getting a little nervous about “competing”. Every single event can be scaled, with either doing a lighter weight or different movement. Every level will be challenged and whether you’re a seasoned competitor or a rookie you’ll have a blast on the 15th.
After the 3 events are completed we will take the top 4 men and women into the finals. In the even to a tie, the Front Squat Ladder will be the tie breaker to determine who goes to the finals. We are doing the finals tournament style. (1 vs. 4, 2 vs. 3, head to head matchups). The winners of the semi-finals match ups then go head to head for the overall winner spot.
TIMELINE: note this is a rough timeline and we’ll strive to keep things moving along as quickly as possible.
