Video Proof

All the workouts must be filmed and each score, to be valid, must be entered in the leaderboard system along with the URL of a video proof

The official video recording app of the 2020 Italian Showdown is WODProof App. Preset timers for each workout are available in the app. The recorded videos must be uploaded to YouTube with privacy set to Public. The URL of each video proof must be entered along with the score of each workout.

All the athletes must adhere to the workout format described in the official website, including movement standards and video standards. Any violation of the prescribed format results in the repetition(s) being disallowed and/or video invalidated.

Scores will be validated by our internal review team, who will enforce the Open standards. As part of the video review process, the athlete’s posted score may be accepted, modified or invalidated.

  • Valid: the athlete meets the required movement standards on all repetitions in the workout and the score posted is correct. The score will be accepted.
  • Minor penalty: over the course of the video, the athlete demonstrates a small number of “no reps”. A minor penalty will be applied and a score adjustment will be made. A minor penalty can be applied to more than one movement per workout.
  • Major penalty: over the course of the video, the athlete demonstrates a significant number of “no reps”. A major penalty will be applied and the score may be modified by subtracting 15 percent from the total rep count. A major penalty can be applied to more than one movement per workout.
  • Invalid: over the course of the video, the athlete fails to complete the workout as required, a significant and unacceptable number of reps performed are “no reps” or the video does not contain the criteria listed in the video submission standards.

The athlete’s score may be rejected. A score adjustment occurs when an athlete’s score needs to be modified based on miscounted reps, “no reps” or a combination of the two. A score adjustment may stand alone or be applied in conjunction with a result from a minor or major penalty. Time penalties will be applied based on the movements and/or circumstances in any given workout.
