9. RULES OF STREET WORKOUT POWER CATEGORY COMPETITION
9.1. It is the vision of the competition that a Participant has to have enough overall power to win
the World Champion’s title. To reach this goal the Organizers and the Federation will not
reveal the weight category division and the size of the additional weights before the end of
the registration for the competition. During the first year of this competition, it will be done
to maintain the mystery and to delay any objections for after the first real competition of this
kind has taken place in the new street workout system.
9.2. The competition will be the first Street Workout Power and Strength World Championship in
the history and the experience from this competition will be used to promote long-term
development and create a system for this kind of competitions.
9.3. The competition will be held on these constructions:
9.3.1. Pull-up bar – 2.4 m high, 1.7 m wide, 33 mm diameter of the bar
9.3.2. Parallel bar – 1.4 m high, 0.55 m between centres of the bars, 48 mm diameter
of the bar
9.3.3. Flat ground – wooden stage platform or asphalt.
9.4. In the Street Workout Power category competition the Participants have to perform three
basic street workout elements with additional weight. These elements have to be performed
one after the other and in the following order:
9.4.1. Pull-ups with additional weight
9.4.2. Dips on parallel bars with additional weight
9.4.3. Deep squats holding a weight plate, which has to be held in straight arms in
front of the chest, while performing a squat.
9.5. In the order which will be selected by lottery before the competition, all the Participants one
after the other will perform pull-ups on the horizontal bar with additional weight. Then in the
same order all the Participants will perform dips on parallel bars and afterwards in the same
order will perform the third and the last element which is squats while holding a weight plate.
9.6. The Participants will be divided into different weight categories and, depending on their
weight category, each Participant will have additional weight added. The difference of
additional weights is based on the difference of body weights and the difference will make it
so that all the Participants of all weight categories will actually compete all together. There
will be only one winner of all the weight categories. There will be no individual titles or prizes
in separate weight categories. More detailed division of weight categories and additional
weights for each weight category will be revealed only after the end of the official registration
of all participants on 1 September. We believe that the Participant weight categories and
different additional weights will make the competition more fair for the Participants of
different weight categories who will be all competing together.
9.7. Before performing each element, a Participant will have an additional weight added and the
judges will help the Participant to take the starting position. When the Participant will be
ready in the starting position, a judge will give the signal and the Participant will perform a
maximum number of competition element repetitions.
9.8. Only the correctly performed repetitions of competition elements will be counted.
9.9. A Participant will be allowed to have three (3) second breaks between the performing of
elements, but only three breaks which are longer than three (3) seconds and shorter than
fifteen (15) seconds.
9.10. If a Participant will not perform the next element repetition in time after a break, the
performing of this element for the Participant will be over and the number of repetitions
performed at that moment will be recorded.
9.11. If a Participant will have used the three (3) fifteen (15) second breaks and will not have
started to perform the next element repetition after taking the allowed three (3) second
break, then the performing of this element for the Participant will be over and the number
of repetitions performed at that moment will be recorded.
9.12. The number of repetitions of all three elements will be summed up. The repetitions of the
pull-up element will be counted according to the number of performed repetitions. The
repetitions of the parallel bar and squat elements will be multiplied by coefficients to balance
the effect of the element difficulty and the number of performed repetitions on the total
score. We firmly believe that pull-ups with additional weight is the most difficult of the
elements in the competition, which is followed by dips on parallel bars and then squats which
we ranked in the third place by difficulty. The coefficients will be created after the end of the
Participant registration and according to our beliefs about the difficulty of the elements of
9.13. By multiplying the number of repetitions of dips on parallel bars and squats with the
coefficients and summing up the results with the number of repetitions of pull-ups, we will
get a final result. The Participant with the highest score will get the title “Street Workout
Power Category World Champion 2017”.
