The ChallengesA list of the Sponsor Challenges for 2017
Renaissance Periodization GRID Challenge
The race: Triad. The element: burpee box over. There are 25 burpee box overs required at each station to complete the race. Your teammate begins the station but completes only 4 before needing a sub. You’re tagged in to do the remaining 21 repetitions. How fast can you finish the station for your team?
WODBOM GRID Challenge
Fast transitions between elements are essential in GRID. In a race like the Echo, Utility Players - the unsung heroes of the sport - are sometimes called on to eliminate the need for a sub and complete two different elements back-to-back. It’s time to show your versatility. Can you knock out 20 barbell shoulder-to-overhead then 50 double unders and keep your team in the race?
Victory Grips GRID Challenge
GRID players are always coming up with faster and more efficient ways to work through elements. The ability to complete elements in a shorter time domain allows coaches to build strategies around this competitive advantage. To earn a spot in Jack and Jill, your coach has issued a challenge: max double-touch in 30 seconds. Can you show your efficiency and bodyweight mastery to earn your spot?
OSO GRID Challenge
The Strength Specialist role is one that requires players to not only move heavy weight, but to move it quickly and efficiently. The snatch is a complex movement and can give the more technically sound Strength Specialist a major advantage. To test your strength, versatility and mechanics, the coach has asked you to find your max load for the following complex of elements: one snatch, one hang snatch and two overhead squats.
