Tactical Strength Challenge 2015

October 31, 2015




Help spread the word about this competition!


The Tactical Strength Challenge (TSC) is a strength competition consisting of three events: a three-attempt powerlifting deadlift, pullups for max reps, and kettlebell snatches for max reps in a 5:00 time period. These three events test a unique trade-off between these abilities, and while larger participants may have an advantage in the deadlift, lighter participants have an advantage in pullups, and the kettlebell snatch tests all participants equally. See TSC Rules for more details on these movements and standards.

You must complete the event on October 31, 2015 at one of our pre-approved TSC host facility locations. However, for active duty military we are allowing a video submission option. Only active duty military will have the option to complete these events and submit YouTube videos. If you are active duty and you know in advance that you will be submitting videos, please contact us for additional instructions. More details will be available in early October regarding military video submissions.
