Score validation

All participants can be asked to provide video proof of one or more workouts. It is your sole responsibility to have a video of your performance. If you can't provide a video upon request then your score will be removed from the leaderboard. There will be an option to provide a video link when uploading your score and we recommend teams to do so. It isn't mandatory to provide a link when registering your score but you MUST be able to provide a video upon request.

RX, Intermediate and Scaled on the same leaderboard

For each of the 4 workouts there will be a RX version, a Scaled version and sometimes a Intermediate version.  Each week you choose to do the version that matches your skill level. Here is an example:

If the RX version of week 1 consists of exercises that you can do, then you do this one RX. Week 2 comes along with some skill work in the RX version that you haven't learned yet but the Intermediate version suits you fine. Week 2 is then done in Intermediate version. Week 3 has a RX and Intermediate version that both includes movements that you haven't learned yet. You then choose to do the Scaled version of week 3. Week 4 is right up your alley and you finish the battle off with a RX version.

In this case you have performed 2 workouts RX, 1 workout Intermediate and 1 Scaled - in the same division as everybody else competing in the Xmas Battle.

Scoring

The leaderboard will rank athletes based on the amount of points they score. The participant with the least amount of points wins. 1st place = 1 point, 2nd place = 2 points and so on. Scores in the different workout versions are prioritized: RX>Intermediate>Scaled. The lowest RX score - meeting the minimum work requirement - will be placed right above the best intermediate score on the leaderboard.

Minimum work requirement

There will be a minimum work requirement (MWR) for each RX and Intermediate version of a workout. If the MWR isn't met the score will be reduced to 0. The intention of the MWR is to make sure that the participant who chooses a RX or Intermediate version of a workout is capable of performing all the excersises required.

We strongly encourage all participants to each week choose the version that is best suited for his/her specific skill level. A better placement on the leaderboard should not be at the expense of a good experience and doing a good workout. The ability to meet the MWR doesn't necessarily mean that it's the right choice for a given participant, but it can help make the right decision between RX, Intermediate and scaled version.

Prizes

There will be prizes for the overall winners and for the local winners in the respectable boxes.
