3. Selection Processes

  • Competitor Selection: The top 10 athletes in each category were democratically chosen through a voting system. Each Athlete in the list gave his selection, after crossing the lists of each participant, we arrived at a final list of participants, ensuring a fair and objective selection, with no conflict of interest, based on elite knowledge & following the criterias required to pass the tests.
    The criterias of selection was: Variety, endurance, combinations, form & control. 

Iberian Battles Spotlight : To give the opportunity to 2 more athletes to showcase their strength during the ISW, the organization selected two athletes that showed powerful performance during the Iberian Battles – @gusta93_bbs and @tommaso_magro_01.

  • Judge Selection: Athletes through a democratic voting process selected the judges,  ensuring their legitimacy, and the recognition of the judges by the participants.

4. Test’s selections 

  • Athletes through a democratic voting process selected the tests they will face, they had the opportunity to propose tests that were not in the tests propositions, ensuring their involvement in the creation of the competition's format.

The goal through this test's selection was to quantify all aspects of strength : endurance, form & control, variety and ability to combine.

For reasons of organization and participant fatigue, we asked each athlete to select 12tests, 4tests per day for three consecutive days. As it is an impressive demonstration of strength and endurance to pass, it is impossible to ask participants to pass 5 tests per day / 15 in a total of 3 days.

To ensure that a single test would not have too much influence on the final result, only the main variants are present in the max test’s.In the eventuality that a too big part of the participants could not perform enough reps / would not master one movement, some movements have not been added to the max category, example : Forearm OAP, OAP Pushups, ground viktorian, Zanetti, OAFL pullups.. These incredible movements will be counted in the two steps about variety and combinations.variety test, 1 minute to present five skills : this test is here to show variety and mastery on high level skills that are not into the max reps.1.30 min Combination test : this test is here to let participants show their best combinations, including their most impressive skills and powermoves.To balance the value of the variety and combination aspect with the max reps tests, these two tests will have a coefficient of 3, meaning that each  will count as 3 max reps tests. The criterias of notation are currently being built, by the Elite participants following the same democratic process, ensuring the highest level of expertise and exigence.
