Tactical Strength Challenge

Southern CrossFit will again be again holding our Annual Tactical Strength Challenge. 

The TSC is an all inclusive event designed for all fitness levels. We will be having Beginner, Intermediate and RX'd categories. Every year we use the TSC as a fundraiser. This year it will go towards supporting 2 of our athletes, Tara and Alison. Both qualified for National's in Weightlifting.

There is no entry fee, we are just asking for a donation to compete. There will be some prizes on the day given to winners of each category. It a fun day and we encourage everyone to participate.


The TSC consists of 3 events:

- 3 attempts at a 1RM Deadlift
- 1 Pull Up Max rep attempt. 
- Max Kettlebell Snatches in 5 minutes

The winner is determined by combined placement in the three events. For example, if Lifter A finishes third in the deadlift, fifth in pullups, and second in snatches, his score is 10 (3+5+2). The lowest combined score wins. In the event of a deadlift tie, the lighter competitor places higher. In the event of a pullup tie, the heavier competitor places higher. In the event of a snatch tie, the tie stands. In the event of an overall tie (two or more lifters get same combined score), the tie stands. 

Deadlift: Everyone participant get 3 attempts at a 1 Rep Max Deadlift. Only successful lifts are counted.
