What is Masters League?
Masters league is a competition aimed at competitive athletes over the age of 35.
The competition gives older athletes the chance to compete against people in their own age category at their own gym, judged by a coach or fellow athlete to the movement standards provided by the competition organisers.
Format of the Competition
The competition is a series of 4 workouts, released weekly, which have to be performed before the cut off day and time. The results are then inputted online into a leaderboard and collated across Australia and New Zealand. The leaderboard is public and you can see the workouts and the results here.
