The old saying goes, “If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will get you there.” Training is no different. If you lack a specific goal, the time you spend training may easily become a collection of random acts. The StrongFirst Tactical Strength Challenge is a goal worthy of your efforts.
Held twice each year all over the nation, the Tactical Strength Challenge is comprised of three exercises:
A max powerlifting deadlift (three attempts)
Pull ups for max reps (palms forward, no kipping, chin must clear the bar) or a flexed arm hang (in the Novice Women’s category)
Kettlebell snatches for max reps in a 5:00 time period (unlimited hand switches and different weights for different competitor categories).
Weights and category information can be found here.
Preparing requires your focus on different types of strength and endurance—as demanded by real life’s challenges. SparkFit is proud to be hosting Arkansas TSC challenge on October 26th, right here in Little Rock! To officially compete and be ranked via the StrongFirst leaderboard, sign up here.
