The WODs are:

WOD #1

“Butcher’s Garage Total”

The team (3 persons) has 20 min. to establish 2 x 1RM lifts on the following lifts:

  • Deadlift (with a twist – to be revealed on the 19 FEB)
  • Back squat
  • Bench press
  • Clean (anyhow)

The 2 heaviest lifts in each discipline (fx. deadlift) performed by 2 different people will go into the Butcher’s Garage Total. As it is a team event, each team member has to contribute with at least 2 lifts in 2 disciplines (fx. 1 bench press + 1 clean). The team may try as many lifts as possible and in any order. After the 20 min., the judge needs to have 2 scores on each lift performed by 2 different team members.

Judges will NOT help loading + unloading the bar. Each team will have 1 bar, 1 bench, 1 squat rack and enough bumper plates. Lowest bumper plates will be 2 x 5 kg, 2 x 2,5 kg., 2 x 1, 25 kg.

Example – score (Kenneth, Anders and Henrik are in the same team):

Deadlift: Kenneth 200 kg + Anders 200 kg. = 400 kg.
Back squat: Henrik 200 kg. + Anders 200 kg. = 400 kg.
Bench press: Kenneth 100 kg. + Henrik 100 kg. = 200 kg.
Clean (anyhow): Kenneth 100 kg. + Anders 100 kg. = 200 kg.
Butcher’s Garage Total = 1200 kg.

(Kenneth does 3 lifts, Anders does 3 lifts, Henrik does 2 lifts)

Heats: 3 teams in each heat, time limit: 20 min.

WOD #2

“Tire, Sledge and Prowler Flu”

This WOD is a prowler, sledge, tire, and sandbag relay.

For time:

  • 1st team member has to push the prowler (on the high end) from one end of the turf (kunstgræs) to the other, then grap his sandbag and run back
  • 2nd team member has to pull the sledge from one end of the turf (kunstgræs) to the other, then grap his sandbag and run back
  • 3rd team member has to do tire flips from one end of the turf (kunstgræs) to the other, then grap his sandbag and run back


  • 1st team member graps his sandback, runs back to the prowler, dumps the sand back, and pushes the prowler (on the low end) back.
  • 2nd team member graps his sandback, runs back to the sledge, dumps the sand back, and drags the sledge backwards back.
  • 3rd team member graps his sandback, runs back to the tire, dumps the sand back, and flips the tire back.

Weight + distance will be revealed on the day of the competition.

Heats: 2 teams in each heat, time limit: 12 min.
