Introduction

Before starting with the workout, we ask you to read through everything from this point on so that you are well-prepared.

Although we would love to take your word and not have an online video qualifier process, that’s not how this works. In addition to the scorecard, you, the athlete, will have to upload a video (link) of the prescribed test as visual proof. The main objective is to verify that you have performed the test, that the number of repetitions and times specified are correct, and that you meet the movement standards.

Let us help you by setting up these practical tips and rules to ensure video submission success.

Remember: All three qualifier workouts have to be performed on the same day and in the correct order (LLTD Q24.1 -> LLTD Q24.2 -> LLTD Q24.3)

Before the test

Make sure that you go over all workouts, flow, special regulations and standards by:

  1. READING them first;
  2. Asking questions later if something is unclear to you.

We always recommend the use of a judge, even if it is not mandatory. If you do, make sure that your judge does the same steps as mentioned above.

During the test

Make it clear to your judge that officiating is not just counting reps. Your judge must also be aware that you, as an athlete, have to meet all the required rules and standards.

It’s your judge’s responsibility to inform you if you don’t meet the rules and standards = NO-REP.

Your judge can give you verbal instructions (squat deeper, extend those hips/arms, etc…) but a no-rep is a no-rep and should be given at ALL times during this process!

After the test

We recommend that you check your videos yourself before submitting them to the competition platform. Make a comparison with the scorecard and check the following (if applicable):

  • Are the totals correct?
  • Are the times correct?
  • Are the weights correct?
  • Are the distances correct?
  • Are the heights correct?

It’s NOT up to our review team to determine all of the above. You are responsible for this! If everything is correct and only then, should you upload your video (link) for review without the risk of getting penalties or invalidation of it.

Video format

YOUTUBE, VIMEO, GOOGLE, etc… whichever works best for you is allowed.

Remember to set your video to PUBLIC mode (YOUTUBE) and without a password login (GOOGLE). Also be aware of COPYRIGHTS on music in the background as these get your video taken down.

ALL videos must be uncut/unedited to allow an accurate display of the test performance. The use of fisheye or similar lens is NOT ALLOWED and will be invalidated by our review team due to the visual distortion these lenses cause.

Time and date

Each video must show a time and date stamp. Your best option to make sure this is 100% guaranteed is to download an App such as WODproof so you can scratch any worries about hogging the box WOD clock.

You should also use the WODproof / Concept2 Bluetooth connection.

If you don’t have this, or don’t want to use it, any form of ascending visible clock is allowed within the video frame.

Remember your basics

The first thing we want to see when the video starts is you:

  • Telling us your name;
  • Stating which event, division and workout you are doing;
  • Zooming in/focusing on the weights (barbell, dumbbell, kettlebell, etc…), distance (shuttle run, handstand walk, etc…) and time/distance/calories on those screens so we can give you full credit.

If required, don’t forget to reset the screens of the machines before starting another round.

Angle and frame

Record the video so that all exercises can be clearly seen, meeting the movement standards. As for framing, make sure your ENTIRE body stays in the frame at ALL times. If we can not see you, we can not assess the video!

TIPS!

  • do not place your recording device on the ground with an upward angle;
  • do not place your recording device right in front of you (The anterior 45° angle position is the most ideal place);
  • do not place your recording device far away from you
  • watch out for gym related obstacles

Scorecards

The scorecards are a tool that allows you to record all correctly performed reps in order to upload the final score on the online platform. We strongly recommend that you review this scorecard before performing the workout.

Video review

When submitted, your score and video will be under review. Our review team will watch the videos randomly to make sure to give or subtract full credit of your hard work.

Please try to be patient – with technology and us.

If you have questions about your video or score, please try to hold off until we have had a chance to review your submission and log it for you on the leaderboard.

If we contact you about submission problems, you will have 24-hours to reply and comply.

Appeals

Appeals, scoring discrepancies or questions about the review of online videos will be handled by our head judge. Athletes will receive an email if the score posted is modified due to a penalty. The message will give a brief description explaining the reason for the change in the score. After this notification, athletes will have 24-hour time to appeal. All appeals received after this 24-hour deadline will not be processed!

Only the affected athlete may appeal a result. Coaches or unrelated parties may not appeal on behalf of the athlete. Athletes may not appeal their own performance outcome based on the review, scoring or performance of another athlete.
