Battle For The Midlands Info.

Battle For The Midlands returns for its 6th year of competition at UNIT 22 Northampton on August 31st & September 1st 2019. The format for this year will be the same as the two previous years, where same-sex pairs will compete in 3 workouts on day 1 of the competition to determine their category for workouts 4 -6.  

Categories for workouts 4 – 6 will be the BFTM Trophy (scaled competitors) and the BFTM Cup (Rx’d competitiors), so your placing in workouts 1 – 3 will decide which category you’re fighting for.


What’s expected of athletes in each category?

All athletes will complete three workouts on the Saturday and the results from these workouts will categorise teams for the rest of the competition. The remainder of the competition on day 2 will then see the teams battle against each other in their category to win the BFTM Trophy (scaled) or BFTM Cup (Rx’d) titles. 

Teams must contain athletes of a similar ability according to the level that they want to aim for in the competition.

Female – 16kg KB swings, GTOH 30kg, step up to a 20″ box. 

Male – 24kg KB swings, GTOH 45kg, step up to a 24″ box.
