Test your Strength and Fitness this October

Its that time of the year to truly test your strength and fitness! The Tactical Strength Challenge is a competition consisting of three events: a three-attempt powerlifting deadlift, kettlebell snatches for max reps in a 5:00 time period and pullups for max reps. These three events test a unique trade-off between these abilities, and while larger participants may have an advantage in the deadlift, lighter participants have an advantage in pullups, and the kettlebell snatch tests all participants equally.

Where and who can Compete?

Our gym, Critical Mass Training Systems is an pre-approved testing facility for the event, which will be held on October 27th! Critical Mass staff along with members will be competing for the chance to make the leader board. This is a world event and results will be posted online. There will be three divisions being tested. If you want to see where how you would compete check out below.
