THE ULTIMATE TEEN CHALLENGE EVENTS: 10:00am – 4:00pm
Awards Ceremony: Approximately pm
All teens! Must have proof of age. The Teen Challenge is based on each individual’s strength and overall physical condition. Most events are based on athlete’s individual body weight. Each teen will compete at their personal level on the following or similar events:
Each athlete has one minute to do as many complete bench presses as possible. Amount of weight on the bench will be calculated at 70% of the competitor’s body weight rounded to the nearest 5-pound increment.* Strict form will be enforced for the safety of the competitors and to promote a fair competition. The bar must be lowered to the chest in a controlled fashion and touch the chest. The bar cannot be bounced off the chest. The competitor’s feet must remain flat on the floor and the back and buttocks must remain in contact with the bench at all times (no bridging). Athlete may rest with the bar in either the high or low position.
Wt. Calc. Example: Teen weighs in at 180 lb.
Total weight on the bar 180 lb. x 70% = 126 lb.
Plates added to the bar = 126 – 30 (wt. of bar) = 96 rounded to 95 lb.
(This is the number that will appear on the teen’s armband.)
Tire Flip Competition
Each athlete will have to move a ~120-pound truck tire down the length of the course by “flipping it end-over-end, stop at the midpoint of the course and jump rope 10 times, cross the line at the distant end of the course and do 20 alternating toe taps onto the tire rim, then flip the tire back to the midpoint and do 10 step-throughs (stepping, not jumping) into the tire and then out the other side and reverse, then flip the tire over the original line to finish. The tire must fall flat each time; rolling the tire in any way is unacceptable. Each competitor’s time will be calculated towards their total score.
Weighted Sled Push
Each teen will push a weighted sled down the length of the course, cross the line at the end of the course, then return the sled back down the course and cross over the starting line. Weight on the sled will be calculated as a % based on body weight. Time will be calculated towards total score.
Wt. Calc. Example: Teen weighs in at 183 lb.
Total weight on the sled = 183 lb. rounded to the nearest 5 lb. = 185 lb.
Plates added to the sled = 185 – 80 (wt. of sled) = 105 lb. (This is the number that will appear on the teen’s armband.)
