How fit are you? -- 2nd Tactical Strength Challenge 3 May 2014

Hello and welcome to our second event – the Tactical Strength Challenge (TSC)

The challenge has two parts: 1. you agree to make the deadlift, pullup, and kettlebell snatch a part of your workout from now until the first weekend of May 2014, AND/OR 2. if you feel so inclined, you come compete at the TSC competition on 03 May 2014 at Formosa Fitness.

Here’s what the competition part of the challenge looks like:

The idea behind this is to use the competition to drive your workouts. The date of the competition gives you an end date, forcing you to focus on getting the work done rather than procrastinating. You’ll be going through this at the same time as other people, providing a sense of community to drive you further. You’re forced to focus on broadly useful exercises instead of frivolous ones, getting strong and likely losing fat in the process. Plus on competition day you’ll get to come meet a bunch of people just like yourself. Trust me, it’s a relief to meet other people that enjoy this stuff here since no one else in your gym may be into this. All are welcome!!

On the morning of May 03, we have weighins at 10am and the competition starts at 10:30am. Everyone gets three chances to pull a deadlift max. When everyone has pulled, everyone (guys and gals) does a set of max pullups. You’re done when your feet hit the floor. After that, you do a set of max kettlebell snatches in 5:00 with the 12kg (women) or 16kg (men’s beginner), or 24kg (men’s open division). The winner is the one who gets the most points in the three events.
