The Tactical Strength Challenge (TSC) is upon us. This event, put on through StrongFirst, started as a way to help test workplace performance for military and law enforcement operators, but soon became a great way to test any level of training.
The TSC is made up of three tests.
- The three attempt max deadlift (tests absolute strength)
- Pull-ups for max reps or Flexed Arm Hang for time (tests bodyweight relative strength)
- Kettlebell snatches for max reps within 5 minutes (tests cardiovascular endurance)
There are different divisions which are based on male or female, pull-up or flexed arm hang, and weight used for the kettlebell snatches.
For those who would like to partake in this event but are worried about snatching with a kettlebell and pull-ups, no worries. The Saturday 9am and Wednesday 6:30pm classes will become a TSC prep class. In this class we will be specifically learning and training for these events. I also ask that you look at what division you would like to compete in and let me know that way we can plan specifically for you.
If you would like to join us on Saturday October 1, 2016 for some fun and test your own abilities, sign up here and show up Saturday August 6th for the first TSC prep class. Also, please let us know ahead of time, that you have signed up before . If you have questions about this event, please look here or you can ask Joey and I.
