In the video, you, the athlete, has to state his/her name.

A clearly visible timer has to be in frame. We recommend using WODProof (search relevant app stores - it's free to use!) for not having any issues with the timer. 

WORKOUT STANDARDS

Each workout will have a video guide and required standards. Although all movements are very simple, they all require a standard. On review, we will check to ensure standards are met. On each workout submission, see "Standards" section and also the penalties for missing these.

ENTRY FEE

We have charged the minimum available to run this online competition and cover all fees. The fee is £1 + £1.91 admin fee. Less than a cup of coffee!
