1) What is it?

The TSC is a WORLD WIDE event,
Held twice a year, at various local facilities,
Hosted ONLY by Certified STRONGFIRST instructors.

“The Tactical Strength Challenge began in 2002 when StrongFirst’s founder and Chairman, Pavel Tsatsouline, created it to help military and law enforcement personnel with their preparation for the physical demands of their duty. But what made the TSC so popular is that it brings out the perfect blend of strength and conditioning for all individuals—regardless of background, profession, gender, or size.”

– There Are Three Events –

1 > MAX Deadlift <

2 > MAX REP/TIME Pull Up / Flexed Arm Hang <

3 > as many SNATCHES as possible in 5 MINUTES <


*Results are Posted and Ranked Internationally*


Want to test your mettle in a safe and encouraging environment?


2) How should I prepare?

There are many workouts and protocols out there that claim to make you bigger, stronger, etc…

But what is little focused on however, is how to peak performance.

The human body needs time to recover after intense training – often much more time than one thinks.

And since doing nothing is NOT an option –

– you must continue your technique practice and monitor your energy levels closely for a few days prior to competition day.

Testing yourself on near-maximal attempts should be done only if necessary, and should be done well in advance of competition day (8-12 weeks)
