Exercise complexes have varying degrees of technical complexity and levels of exercise stress.

The number of exercises can be up to 20, they must be performed as quickly as possible in the specified order.

The Tournament challenges included in the Tournament program will be announced to the participants at the briefing.

The format of the tournament complexes includes the following components:

  • Certain moves. a) The starting and ending points of a motion; b) Limitations in performance techniques and/or equipment used if any.
  • The number of approaches and/or repetitions.
  • Specific equipment.
  • Specific weight of equipment.
  • Fixed performance time or a time limit.
  • Scoring specifics.

Some exercise complexes may have time penalties. If an Athlete does not complete the task within the set time limit, he/she can get a fine of 1 second for each failed repetition and/or will not advance to the next stage of the Tournament.

Some exercise complexes may have a set minimum amount of time, number of reps, weight of equipment or rounds for further advancement. In case such a limit is set, it will be announced as a part of the tournament challenge. The inability of an Athlete to achieve the minimum result will make it impossible for the Athlete to advance to the next task.

If an Athlete does not advance to the next task for any reason (injury, disqualification, etc.), this Athlete will be at the end of the leaderboard, after all, who have performed the task, and will not be able to go to the next stage of the Tournament.

 Scaling or changes to the tournament complexes are prohibited.
