Before you start recording

  • If you're using a phone, set it to airplane mode, turn off any alarms to avoid interruptions during filming.

  • Ensure your filming device has enough battery life and memory to film the entire WOD.

  • Ensure the perspective of camera captures all movements.

The content

  • Announce your name name, date, division, and workout.

  • All equipment used must be shown (per event details).

  • A timer must be in view at all times.

If the event you are participating requires a video upload.  Here are some tips:

  • Plan ahead, get your videos uploaded early to avoid any unforeseen roadblocks.

  • You may upload to YouTube, Vimeo, Daily Motion, Google Drive, Dropbox, iCloud, Tencent or Microsoft Drive

  • Avoid the unknown getting flagged for copyright visions for any background music you may have in your video by using Google Drive, Dropbox or iCloud

  • If you run into technical issues uploading to the video platform, please contact that platforms support directly.  Uploading issues are outside Competition Corner's control.

Using YouTube, Vimeo or Daily Motion?

  • Be aware if you have music in the background with copyright protection, it may be blocked.

  • If you are new to YouTube, by default YouTube requires you to request a limit increase to upload a video longer than 15 minutes. To do so, follow the instructions in the link below -

  • Make sure your video is set for PUBLIC or UNLISTED viewing
