Pandemic Throwdown by The Forge Concept

Event description

Pandemic Throwdown

The Idea

Many of you have been training for a season peak.Unfortunately, all finals were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We will give you the chance to compare your performance in a competition-like setting.

Would be a shame if your training was a waste of time, wouldn't it?

The Mode

The Forge Concept Pandemic Throwdown will consist out of nine workouts, these nine workouts have to be performed in a three day window.

Day one will start in the late afternoon, mimicking Friday. This is usually the day after travelling and arriving at the venue and then starting the competition late in the afternoon.

Day two will be simulating Saturday, starting early at around 9:00 with the last event taking place in the afternoon, finishing the day at around 17:00.

Day three will mimic Sunday and will start a bit earlier then Saturday. The competition will then be done in the early afternoon.

You have a two week time period in which you can pick three consecutive days to perform the competition. We will start on Friday, May 8th and then finish on Sunday, May 24th.

The Rules

To verify your performance, you will have to film each workout like any regular qualifier: You'll show the equipment you work with and will have to show the website of the pandemic throwdown to confirm the time and the date that your workout takes place. This way we will make sure that you stick to the demanded time schedule.

All movement standards are clear and there will be no score sheets. As this is just a test for a competition.
