Athletes will compete across 4 x 10min workouts with a 6 min break between each workout. For example, if your heat start time is 12.30pm, your workouts will be 12.30pm, 12.46pm, 13.02pm, 13.18pm, finishing at 13.28pm.

Workouts will go live Sunday 14th May.



In terms of what you can and can't wear when working out.  

  • Athletes CAN wear - knee and elbow supports, weightlifting belts, chalk, lifting shoes, wrist straps, palm grips
  • Athletes CAN'T wear - Anything that attaches to a bar to aid grip or strength (except palm grips for TTB for example). Gloves cannot be worn on any workout.
  • From a foot wear perspective, the workouts will be a mix of tests with some outdoor running so if you like - please bring running shoes, lifting shoes, training shoes.


The winning pair from each of the categories will receive prizes from our partners.


All spectators are welcome and can come free of charge. Please CLICK HERE to register. There will be coffee, snacks on site.


Scoring throughout the day will be via a 'Rank' based system i.e. lowest points wins. So if you come 1st in a workout you will get 1 point, 20th will get 20 points. 

If for any reason teams are tied on points after the heats, the tie will be broken by a count back system where the team with the highest number of 'better finishers' in the events, will finish higher. 


During a workout, if a piece of equipment a team is using breaks - i.e. ski erg/row erg etc - the team will have the option to use the replacement equipment if available and continue on with the workout.  The score will be adjusted in a fair way at the end of the workout.

We are looking forward to seeing you on the day. Any questions please email
