Big5 Explained

A Word from the sponsors

Some Contenders may want to showcase their grit.

The Contender Big5 will be held over the three days, and this will be looked after by one of our PT’s and their team, who know their stuff, making sure that any and all Contenders know and understand the dangers that could happen before jumping in.

Safety first at all times!

Some of the best gym moves are the oldest ones.

But let’s get you warmed up first.

No need to rush into an injury, no one, will be impressed with a pulled back.

Everybody needs to be sensible, and if in doubt just shout!

Remember it’s not about looking pretty, let’s get the work done and done safe.

The Contender Big5 is about max reps, in just 60 seconds, for each discipline.

“If you can fill the unforgiving minute

With sixty seconds’ worth” ….

Contender Games is more, than just the obstacle course.

Just like the wild game in Africa’s “Big Five” we just wanted to bring the Big5 of the fitness world, to Contender Games


This tests your overall strength, deadlift is the #1 of strength exercises, it activates almost all of your muscles, from head to toe.
When done correctly after a few reps you will feel exhausted and most differently a burn.

Bench Press

No intro needed, everyone knows the bench press, tuck in your elbows and push, flat bench or on the incline lockout those arms and give it your best, will you be out worked.

Overhead Press

Engage your core and keep your back straight, now push, chest, delts, triceps and traps will all feel this but will the time run out before you can get to grips with the task.

Barbell Squats

Upper back, abs, obliques, thighs, gluts and traps will all burn, all for the right reasons, this exercise will activate a full range of muscles and could be one of the reasons why some miss leg days at the gym, it truly is known as the infamous leg exercise.

Bent Over Row

The motion can be done with dumbbells, or a bar but none the less a great way to activate your core and exercise those arms.

The Rules
