Validation If you are a member of an affiliate your score may be validated by your coach or box owner. For unaffiliated competitors please submit a video submission. However, we will check the top 5 placed athlete's videos for each division for each workout and then another 5 per division per workout at random. Please have your videos available. Which Division Should I Enter? We encourage you to pick the correct category for your ability - we don't want to see athletes capable of linking 20 muscle ups entering the scaled division. Your coach should be able to advise you if you are unsure. If in doubt we would encourage you to challenge yourself and enter the RX division.
