Individual Events Examples

Bench Press

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.

Weight Calculation Example for Bench Press:      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.)

Super Land Ski

Each athlete will run, carrying a baton, to the far end of the course and place the baton in a box, then run back to the starting line. There, the athlete will put on a pair of land skis and pull them self hand-over-hand to the finish line, pick the baton back up, and run with it back to cross the starting line. Each teen’s total time will be calculated towards their total score.

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, cross the line at the distant end of the course, then flip the tire back 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.

Weight Calculation Example for Sled Push:      Teen weighs in at 180 lb
Total weight on the sled 180 lb x 150% = 270 lb
Plates added to the sled = 270 – 80 (wt. of sled) = 190 rounded to nearest 5 lb
(This is the number that will appear on the teen’s armband.)

Cross-Fit Circuit

Each teen will do a four-exercise circuit containing strength, agility & cardio elements. The athlete will start out doing an inchworm from the first station to the starting line, then pick up 2 Rogue tactical sand bags (weight based on range of body weight), then run back to the first station to do 20 box jumps, and on to the next station for 10 triceps dips on the JackRack. Finally, they will carry the sandbags and run back the length of the course to cross the starting line. Each teen’s total time will be calculated towards their total score. If a teen is unable to complete any section they will incur a time penalty.

Weight Calculation for Sandbags:
up to 115lb.…20 lb sandbag
115-134 lb … 25 lb sandbag
135-154 lb … 30 lb sandbag
155-174 lb … 35 lb sandbag
