Team Qualifier Question & Answer
In this blogpost we will answer frequently asked and important questions concerning the German Throwdown Classic 2019 Team Qualifier.
Q: Are the workouts to be done individually or as a team?
A: The workouts will be done individually. So, you can be at different places to do the qualifier. You just need to make a strategic decision, which athlete does which workout or which variation of a workout.
Q: How many workouts have to be done?
A: Over the two-week span from 19.07. – 05.08. the team has to do a total of 4 different workouts. Each athlete does one workout per week.
So, you will have different workouts per week. However, one workout each week will have two variations. E.g. one is a triplet with 3 rounds and the other variation is a chipper.
In the end the captain needs to make the critical decision who is going to do which workout.
Q: What is the difference between Elite and Intermediate Team?
A: Elite Team is appropriate for athletes who are strong enough for competition rx’d weights and gymnastic movements (75+/50+kg barbell movements, muscle-ups etc.), as well as a high-volume competition. Intermediate Team is reduced in weight, skills and volume (50+/35+ kg barbell, no muscle-ups etc.). So, if you are a renowned competition athlete, look no further than Elite. If you are just starting out with competitions, then Intermediate should be applicable for you.
