Team positioning will be based on your 4 Team Members (Male 1, Male 2, Female 1, Female 2) finishes and subsequent points in each division.
I.e. Point scoring is based on your team members individual placings!
For example – 4 Members placing 1st and 5th for the Men and then 3rd and 10th for the Women in the RX division, get the following total score – 1+5+3+10 = 19 points. The lowest total points wins!

Division Entry Guidelines and NOTE on Scaling
A Scaled Division has been included at the EC Champs. The scaled division has reduced loading and or less challenging movements, making this division even more accessible to most Box members. We have included an Intermediate Division since 2018 to bridge the gap between the RX’ED and Scaled divisions.
Dumbbell, Barbell or KB movement loads will be appropriate for advanced athletes. Muscle-up’s, Chest to Bar Pull-up’s, Pistols, Handstand Push-up’s, Rope Climbing and the like can be included in these divisions. Light through to heavy loads can be expected in this division.
Dumbbell, Barbell or KB movement loads will be appropriate for intermediate athletes. Pull-up’s, Kipping Handstand Push-ups, other intermediate gymnastics can be included in these divisions. Light through to heavy loads can be expected in this division. Olympic movements will be made easier – For example with snatches, an athlete will be allowed to 1st power snatch and then overhead squat if they are unable to complete a fluid squat snatch. The goal is to make this division accessible for beginners.
Beginner (Scaled) Division
Athletes should be competent with common exercise movements. These may include but are not limited to Barbell, Dumbell, or KB Movements. The prescribed weights for Dumbbell, Barbell or KB movements will be appropriate for beginners and thus makes this competition accessible to all. Loading will be light to moderate, except in the case of any strength/power tests. Movements that will NOT be included are muscle-up’s, pull-ups, double under’s, handstand push-ups, toes to bar and pistols. Olympic movements will be made easier – For example with snatches, an athlete will be allowed to 1st power snatch and then overhead squat if they are unable to complete a fluid squat snatch. The goal is to make this division accessible for beginners.
Athletes will only require:
- a Skipping Rope and
- a Backpack or any other object (water container/DB/KB/BB etc) weighing the following…
RX and Intermediate – Men 20kg, Women 12kg
Scaled – Men 12kg, Women 8kg.
This division is for those training at home with minimal equipment who still want the opportunity to compete and to be in line for our lucky draw prizes!
NOTE ON SCALING for RX, INTERMEDIATE and BEGINNER (SCALED)
If you are Registered for RX… you can scale a Workout to Intermediate. When logging your score on the RX leaderboard, tick scaled if you scaled to intermediate.
I.e. The person who has the best Time/Reps but who has scaled to INTERMEDIATE will fall after the last RX person on the RX leaderboard!
If you are Registered for INTERMEDIATE… you can scale a Workout to BEGINNER (SCALED). When logging your score on the INTERMEDIATE leaderboard, tick scaled if you scaled to BEGINNER (SCALED).
I.e. The person who has the best Time/Reps but who has scaled to BEGINNER will fall after the last INTERMEDIATE person on the INTERMEDIATE leaderboard!
If you are Registered for BEGINNER (SCALED)… you CANNOT scale a Workout further! So DO NOT Tick Scaled!
PAR-Q and Indemnity Forms
It is every athlete’s responsibility to ensure that they are of the appropriate fitness level for the event. Each athlete is required to sign a PAR-Q form and Personal Indemnity Form. This will be included in the registration process!
