MASS Wars is the all-out battle over who really is the strongest Uni in the UK. A tiered system in which competitors battle it out strength wars style to get through to the next round and ultimately compete in the finals.
2 PM to 7 PM SATURDAY 25TH NOVEMBER
The Foundry, Vauxhall.
MASS Wars will be 3 heats of strength battles taking elements from all of the strength disciplines. A combination of exercises from bodybuilding, strongman, and powerlifting put together into a series exercises to make a ‘parkour’ that competitors will go head to head against one and other to complete in the fastest time possible.
It’ll be just like the YouTube series: https://www.youtube.com/user/BodybuildingRev
You enter and compete as individuals, but there are is a points system whereby all competitors from your University’s points add up to make your Uni’s team total. And we’ll have a Uni winner.
4 categories: men’s light, men’s heavy, women’s light, women’s heavy. It’ll be accessible for everyone!
There will be three workouts, making three heats. Complete the workout as fast as you can to qualify to the next heat and eventually the finals.
Heat 1: Fastest times go through – 5-minute time cap
Heat 2: the top 2 athletes go through – 7-minute time cap
Finals: a head to head battle for 1st place – 9-minute time cap

There are 4 categories; 2 for men and 2 for women (men’s heavy, men’s light, women’s heavy, women’s light). You’ll be assigned categories and weights will be released 1 week out from the competition.
Weights will be announced for each category closer to the competition. When you register on for the competition you are asked for your 1 rep max for a series of exercises. We’ll use this information to tailor the event to those taking part.
