The Tactical Strength Challenge (TSC)

The Tactical Strength Challenge (TSC) was developed originally by Pavel Tsatsouline, and is a strength competition consisting of 3 events:

The TSC will be held only twice each year; once in the Spring and once in the Fall

EVENTS:

  1. A three-attempt powerlifting maximum deadlift


  2. Pullups for max reps


  3. Kettlebell snatches for max reps in a 5:00 time period


The winner is determined by combined score/placement in the 3 events, lowest combined score wins. In the event of a deadlift tie, the lighter competitor places higher. In the event of a pullup tie, the heavier competitor places higher. In the event of a snatch tie, the tie stands. In the event of an overall tie (two or more lifters get same combined score), the tie stands.
