The organization reserves the unquestionable and inalienable right to accept or reject the registration of an athlete. The organization also reserves the exclusive right to validate or invalidate the scores of an athlete.
The organizers reserve the right, with complete freedom and absolute discretion, to invite any athlete whose presence may add prestige and sporting value to the competition.
In order to participate in the event, the athlete confirms through his/her registration that he/she fully and completely agrees with the rules and guidelines set out in these Regulations.
The workouts (in the data sheet attached to the videos) include:

– Performance points of each movement (the athlete must know the performance points of each movement called “lower and upper position”).
– Number of repetitions required.

– Time available.
– Scoring method.
– Movement variations.
– Guidelines for video recording.
Modification of the scoring workout is strictly prohibited and constitutes invalidation of the entire video test.
It is absolutely forbidden to change the standard of movement or to modify the range of motion of an exercise. Therefore, any movement that is considered unusual, out of the ordinary or used to shorten or modify the prescribed movement will be penalised. The organizers reserve the right to request the athlete provide any documentary evidence needed.

Good video: the video is free of penalties.
Valid with penalties: these will be counted in the score by subtracting the non-reps from the result. If the score is determined by the execution time, this will be increased by the value of the no-rep given.
Invalid: the athlete has not performed the training as prescribed, has added an unacceptable number of no-reps, or the video cannot be evaluated due to framing.
