PIT CREW BATTLE

This workout is for teams of 6, working as two sub-teams of 3: women’s sub-team and men’s sub-team. You will need two bars; men’s bar and women’s bar.

Rx: 100kg for women, 150kg for men.

The workout starts with an unloaded bar. On 3-2-1-GO both bars can be loaded to their workout weight. The load should be heavy, your team would be aiming to complete the deadlifts in alternating singles (male-female-male-female etc)

For time:
30 deadlifts
30 synchro burpees over bar (male-female pair, male-female bars)
Unload the bar, carry bar and plates 100m, reload the bar
30 deadlifts

The deadlift reps alternate between the athletes, men lift the 150kg bar and women lift the 100kg bar. After 30 deadlifts in total have been completed, the team completes 30 synchro burpees over bar in male-female pairs. Once the burpees have been completed, both bars are unloaded and all equipment is transported 100m where the bars are loaded again and the team completes another set of 30 deadlifts.

This is a workout where you can get creative and improvise the transportation part of the workout to suit the space you have available. If its raining, you can transport the bar and plates between two markers or corners inside your gym. You can carry them around a loop, or out and back. You can also adapt the distance to suit the space and time available. Find out how your team communicates during the barbell assembly task, it is harder than you think after those deadlifts and burpees!

 

WHY ONE TRIBAL CLASHER FLEW 5500 MILES TO COMPETE

Distance shouldn’t be a barrier when it comes to epic experiences. When you say YES to epic, it can be the most transformative experience of your life. Tribal Clash UK and Portugal have teams competing from as many as 12 different European nations every year. Some of the 240 teams in these sold out events travel as much as 3,000 miles across Europe, bringing their whole family with them to support.
 
One Tribal Clash superfan from the UK is following the competition around the world, having competed at three of the four Tribal Clashes in 2019 including the very first US edition!

So why did Charlie Cust from Unit6 fly 5500 miles from the UK to California to take part in the first Tribal Clash USA with a team that had never met before?
In his own words: 

“Tribal Clash Portugal was so good this year that I just couldn’t wait for the UK competition a few months later – nothing else scratches the itch or even comes close.

The opportunity to be there for the next stage in development of this incredible comp was unreal, and to get to do it with a bunch of great athletes who mostly had never met before…well that’s the best bit, it’s like a blind date at the world’s most savage team fitness competition!

Making new friends, hanging out with good friends, going to new places, achieving common goals with likeminded people, making each other laugh a lot, encouraging people to care about things that you passionately care about, hearing their stories, witnessing raw grit and determination in the face of adversity… that shit rocks.

Seeing Tribal Clash bring that to a new group of people on a new continent and having the chance to compete was incredible. Being on a beach, in the ocean, doing exercise, dancing, singing, hugging, throwing high fives….you don’t need a competition to do that but it does encourage you to do more of those things and helps you realise that doing those things makes you happy.
Keep learning, keep living, keep f*#%ing doing!!!”

Charlie is set to take part in Tribal Clash Australia 2020, his ninth Tribal Clash so far. He is chasing down the elusive winning spot, having come close many times before; Charlie’s team has stood on the podium in the UK and in Portugal, but the Mask has eluded them eight times. Charlie’s international team will take on some of Australia’s finest, in what is proving to be an epic showdown: Tribal Clash Australia 2019 was a dress rehearsal, now we are going to turn up the heat. 

Say YES to epic. Book your place in the Tribal Clash sand pit, and get ready to do work.

IS TRIBAL CLASH THE RIGHT TEAM COMPETITION FOR YOU?

Tribal Clash is kicking off the 2020 series in Australia, before heading to Portugal, the USA and the UK. Not sure if the unique team competition is right for you and your members? Read on to find out why it’s an awesome experience for all abilities!

IS TRIBAL CLASH SUITABLE FOR BEGINNERS?

Tribal Clash is a fully inclusive competition that is fantastic for beginners! Workouts focus on teamwork and communication, allowing athletes of all abilities to take part and feel like they’ve achieved something great. The competition features very few technical movements, and often teammates are able to help and support each other during a workout. Tribal Clash is a great event for newbies as they will be able to try new things, gain confidence and most importantly, have fun with their tribe!

IS TRIBAL CLASH TOUGH ENOUGH FOR ELITE ATHLETES?

Past Tribal Clash competitors have included CrossFit Games athletes, Olympians and Rugby World Cup winners. Elite athletes will enjoy the thrill of getting outside their comfort zone and pushing themselves in a completely unique environment. Workouts are innovative and test team work capacity as well as individual fitness, forcing teams to think on their feet and adapt to the situation. Equipment is custom made, rustic and awkward and will provide a challenge for even the most capable and experienced athletes!

There are no barbells, rowing machines or skipping ropes at Tribal Clash; instead you will lunge with logs, squat with sandworms, lift atlas stones and climb ropes. Varied workouts play to different strengths so Tribal Clash is for EVERYONE – whatever your age, ability, background and experience, as long as you are willing to work hard for your team then this is the competition for you!

 

WHAT DO PREVIOUS COMPETITORS SAY? 

“We had a super positive experience at Tribal Clash Australia 2019 which created a buzz back at the gym – there was even talk of teams trying to go to an international event! We love the fact that it is held on a beach and encompasses CrossFit, Strongman, and Ocean events, as we do all of that in our training. It is important to have things to look forward to and get excited about, as a business, as a community, and as individuals.”
CrossFit Hurstville, Australia

“Tribal Clash is more than a competition; it’s a confidence builder and a community get together! As a box, we have always prioritised this competition over any other – we go together with our partners and family and compete, making it a community event. Regardless of age or ability, we’ve had most of our members compete at the European events!”

CELEBRATE YOUR COMMUNITY AT TRIBAL CLASH

WHY HAVE TWO CROSSFIT BOXES ALREADY REGISTERED AT LEAST 8 TEAMS EACH FOR TRIBAL CLASH AUSTRALIA 2020?

 

Five teams from CrossFit Hurstville competed at the first Tribal Clash Australia. The box has already registered nine teams for the 2020 event, with another couple of teams keen to sign up. CrossFit Reclaim are just behind them with eight teams already signed up for next year and more members eager to join the party. 

Here’s why these CrossFit communities have become so passionate about Tribal Clash…

CROSSFIT HURSTVILLE

“When we heard about Tribal Clash we decided it would be a great way for a group of us to spend quality time together away from the gym and be pushed outside our comfort zone.
We managed to get a coaches team together (who finished in 6th place!) plus 4 other teams. The competition was so well run – it was professional and you really looked after our community.

We all had a super positive experience which created a buzz back at the gym – there was even talk of teams trying to go to an international event! When the opportunity to register for the 2020 Tribal Clash opened, everyone jumped on it and it has continued to build momentum!

We love the fact that it is held on a beach and encompasses CrossFit, Strongman, and Ocean events, as we do all of that in our training. Our community train all year round, and this is an amazing opportunity to get away, stay with mates, and put our training to the test. 

We have already incorporated regular running sessions, swimming sessions, and strongman training into our Tribal Clash prep for next year! It is important to have things to look forward to and get excited about, as a business, as a community, and as individuals.

Thanks again for putting on a great event and we look forward to seeing you on the beach in February!”

Paul Kiely, CrossFit Hurstville Head Coach

CROSSFIT RECLAIM

“Tribal Clash was different to other CrossFit-themed competitions in two major ways.

Firstly, it was held on the beach and used exercises and movements not commonly seen in a typical CrossFit gym – running on soft sand, swimming in a group holding an inflatable board, lifting logs, carrying sand bags and hurdling obstacles. The emphasis was on teamwork and efficiency to complete the workout, which was great for team building.

The second major stand out point was that it felt more like a festival than a competition! We had over 90 supporters cheering on the CrossFit Reclaim competitors. The beach atmosphere, larger sized teams and cool beats from the DJ booth made the atmosphere electric.

We had an awesome weekend and will definitely be back next year to ‘Reclaim’ our reputation for having the most teams from any one gym/community.”

Sam Murphy, CrossFit Reclaim Head Coach
