How does BEAST MODE BATTLE work?
Each athlete will weigh-in prior to starting their flight at the registration table. For stations 1, 2, and 3 your body weight-to-max lift will be equated in a body weight- to-max lift pounds ratio. This will put every athlete on the same playing field. Station 4 will be an AMRAP (as many rounds and reps as possible). Stations 5 and 6 will be for time.
The athletes will be partnered up with another athlete in “flights”. So each flight consists of two athletes. Each athlete will be completing individually, but you’ll be moving on together as a flight. Each station is only equipped to accommodate 2 athletes or 1 flight. Each flight will start on a predetermined time. For example, flight #1 starts at 9A, flight #2 starts at 910A, flight #3 starts at 920, all the way down to flight #25. A list of your starting times will be e-mailed to you prior to the event.
Stations 1, 2, and 3 will consist of a max lift. There will only be one certain lift per station. The athlete will have as many attempts to hit their max lift within the 10 minute time limit. Each station will have a 10 minute time limit. The athlete will start at station #1, have 10 minutes to hit a max lift, and move on to stations #2 and #3 with the same rules. There will be a judge present at each station. It is the athlete’s responsibility to load the bars AND unload the bar prior to advancing to the next station. The athlete should plan accordingly prior to moving to the next station to assure all weight is off the bar. A 25lb deduction from the athletes max lift will be asset if weight is left on the bar as a penalty. The athlete must make the judge aware by verbally letting the judge know that he or she will be attempting their max. If the athlete doesn’t advise the judge that they are attempting their max attempt the rep will not count. The judge will be present merely to make sure the athlete meets the standards of each lift and record their max lift. Their will be no spotters. The athlete must know how to properly “dump” the weight in the event of a failed max attempt. If the athlete removes the bar from the rack or is in the motion of the lift when the 10 minute time limit expires, the lift WILL count.
Stations 1, 2, and 3 have a 10 minute time limit. Flight #1 will start at station #1. Once the 10 minute time limit expires, flight #1 moves to station #2, with flight #2 starting at station #1. Once the 10 minute limit expires, flight #1 moves to station #3, flight #2 moves on to station #2, and flight #3 starts at stations #1.
Once you’ve completed stations 1, 2, and 3 you will continue on to 4, 5, and 6 which will be WODs. Stations 4, 5, and 6 also all have a 10 minute time limit. When arriving at station #4, after leaving #3, the flight will have the first minute of the 10 minute time limit to rest. Use this time wisely. Get to the next station and set up quickly and get ready to WOD. Once the first minute of rest expires the time for station #4 will automatically begin. Once the 10 minutes has expired for station #4 the flight moves on to the station #5. Again, the first minute will be for rest. Once the first minute of rest expires the clock will automatically start whether you’re in the rower or not. After each athlete is completed with their WOD, their time will be recorded. If the athlete completes the WOD before the 10 minute time limit has expired he or she will get the remainder of the time to rest. The flight will now move on to station #6. Again, the first minute of the 10 minute station time limit will be for rest. Once the first minute has expired the flight will begin pushing the Prowlers. After the completion of station #6 the athlete’s times will be recorded and the athlete is done for the day.
***Remember each station has a 10 minute time limit. If the athlete cannot finish the timed WODs (stations 5 & 6) within the 10 minute limit, no points will be rewarded and the athlete must move on to the next station.
What are the stations?
Max Back Squat
9 Min. AMRAP
5 log presses @ 140/100lb and 5 burpees
Row 500M, get off rower and complete 30 kettlebell swings @ 53/35lb, row 500M
200M Shuttle Prowler Hi/Lo Push @ 90/50lb. At each 50M mark the athlete complete 15 hand-release pushups. From the starting line to the 50M mark the athlete will utilize the “hi” hand position, which will be marked, to push the Prowler. From the 50M back to the starting line the athlete will utilize the “lo” hand position, which will be marked, to push the Prowler.
What are the standards and descriptions of stations?
The judge will state to the athlete, “Good”, when the standards are met.
The athlete must break below parallel. Hip crease must be below knees to meet this standard. When the judge states, “Good”, the athlete has gone low enough, meeting the standards, and should drive the weight back up and rack the bar. . If the athlete drops the bar off their back on a good lift, the lift will still count, but it is the athlete’s responsibility to unload the bar and put it back on the rack.
The athlete must have their hips completely locked out up top until the judge states to the athlete “Good”, at which time the standards are met and the athlete can drop the bar.
The athlete has to take the bar from the ground to overhead. Any way the athlete chooses to use to accomplish this feat will be acceptable. The athlete can snatch it, clean and jerk it, power clean and push press it, etc. The judge will state, “Good”, to the athlete once the weight is held overhead. At that time the standard has been met and the bar can be dropped.
The log must first be cleaned up to chest level. Once the log is cleaned up to chest level the athlete can begin pressing the log. Any press is acceptable (shoulder, push, jerk, etc.) The athlete must lock out each rep while overhead with their “head-through-the-window”. The standards for “head-through-the- window” is that the athlete’s ears must be in front of their arms to count as a good rep assuring full range of motion. The log is brought back down to the athlete’s chest and the athlete can continue their reps. If the log is dropped it must be cleaned back up to chest level to continue on. The judge will continually count good reps for the athlete. The judge will state “No rep”, for bad reps. Once all 5 log presses are completed the athlete will complete 5 burpees. The standards for burpees are that the athlete’s quads, stomach and chest must hit the ground while in the down position. The athlete will then raise and jump over one AbMat. The athlete can jump over the AbMat however they choose, but must jump with two feet, meaning both feet leave the ground at the same time. Using one foot to jump over the AbMat will be considered a bad rep. Again, the judge will continually count good reps for the athlete. The judge will state “No rep”, for bad reps. 5 log presses and 5 burpees equal 1 round. This WOD will count all rounds and reps as a total number.
The athlete will row 500M. The athlete cannot get off the rower until the meters hit 500. Once the athlete gets off the rower he or she will complete 30 kettlebell swings. The standard for kettlebell swings are that the athlete must bring the kettlebell overhead and bring their “head-through-the-window” and the kettlebell cannot be dropped from the overhead position. The standards for “head-through-the- window” is that the athlete’s ears must be in front of their arms to count as a good rep assuring full range of motion. If the kettlebell is dropped from the overhead position it will be considered a bad rep. The judge will continually count good reps for the athlete. The judge will state “No rep”, for bad reps. Once 30 kettlebell reps are completed the athlete will get back on the rower and row 500M. Time will stop once 500M is achieved.
The athlete will start at the start line in the “hi” hand position which will be marked on the Prowler. The athlete will push the Prowler to a 50M mark. At that time the athlete will complete 15 hand-release pushups. The standard for the hand-lease pushups are that the athlete will start in the plank position with their arms completely locked out. The athlete will drop completely down to the ground assuring that their quads, stomach, and chest all hit the ground as well. Their hands will raises from ground and immediately be brought back down and push themselves back up to the plank position where their arms have to be completely locked out. The judge will continually count good reps for the athlete. The judge will state “No rep”, for bad reps. Once all 15 reps are completed the athlete will push the Prowler in the “lo” position, which will be marked, back to the starting line. The athlete will again complete 15 hand-release pushups. This cycle will be complete once more totaling 200M. The time will stop once the athlete completes the 15th hand-release pushup.
