ONLINE FITNESS COMPETITION
The Archon Bracket is a global online fitness competition allowing participants of all abilities to compete on a level playing field. Starting from January 1st 2020 you will be set specific assessments to perform and then input your score online. Your score is not valued simply on how much weight you lifted or how fast you ran. Instead, our algorithms then assess your performance in correlation to your height, weight, age, gender and wingspan. So your score is personal to you and your ability, no one else’s.
To all our valued community – our bracket competitors and platform subscribers, we remain committed to doing everything we can to continue supporting you during these challenging times.
In light of the UK Government announcement on gym closures, we have decided to postpone the release of the remaining monthly Bracket events, until boxes, gyms and sports centres are able to re-open.
We will keep you updated as to when the competition will resume as soon as we know more.
If you are fortunate enough to have a home gym, and access to a rower and/or squat rack, you will be able to continue to update your current event scores. The hand release press-up can be done at home, and so make sure you also upload any new PB’s.
We are still here to support our community. That’s why next week we will be announcing an exciting ‘no gym required’ bracket competition, to help keep us all active during the period of lockdown.
We will also be temporarily unlocking ALL events on the Archon Fitness Testing Platform for free, to give everyone access to track and analyse their progress and performance whilst the gyms are closed. We have a number of non-equipment based assessments, available from a 1-mile walk, 5k run, 10k run, press up test etc and those with home gym equipment can access all of the other tests available too.
In the meantime, we will be posting resources, ideas and home workouts on our social media pages and so if you’re not already following us you can click on the links in the top right-hand corner.
Stay safe and stay active!

THIS MONTH’S EVENT
HAND RELEASE PRESS UP
The press up is an assessment of upper body strength endurance, focused primarily around the chest and triceps. In order to create a standardised movement pattern a hand release press up will be used to form the criteria. This enables us to slow down the movement and forces a full range of motion to be used, producing identifiable markers for the completion of each repetition.
