Big news in the fitness & bodybuilding industry. 6-time Mr. Olympia Dorian Yates returns to shock the bodybuilding world with an amazing new competition. A new style of competition is coming this July from some of the biggest brands in the fitness industry.
It is called the Super League
The name of the contest is ‘Super League’, which comes from the legendary 6-time Mr. Olympia Dorian Yates, Bodybuilding.com, and Nike.
What makes the Super League so different, is that it’s a combination of both bodybuilding and performance. The way it works is there are two rounds, the first is about performance also called the output quotient round.
Round 1: Output Quotient [OQ]
Competitors are required to perform eight different exercises where they need to hit 12 reps at the heaviest weight they can. The more weight, the better, however, if they don’t reach 12 reps they won’t be able to get as many points.
The Super League calculates the score based on reps (maximum of 12) times weight, divided by body weight. The eight different exercises are plate loaded squat, leg extension, rack deadlift, lat pull down, dumbbell curls, vertical chest flyes, standing shoulder press (Smith Machine), and dips (as many reps as you can).
Round2: The Deltas [3D Score]
The second round in the Super League is where bodybuilding comes in. The competition uses something called 3DX Technology to measure the size of a contestant’s chest, arms, thighs, calves (men), and hips (women), to calculate upper body to waist ratio, lower body to waist ratio, and upper to lower body ratio.
The Super League then adds all of a contestant’s 3DX measured ratios together for a total 3D score, then combines it with their output quotient score, for a final super score.
First Super League event
The first Super League event is currently being promoted for Saturday the 29th of July in Las Vegas. It is going to be streamed at Bodybuilding.com and features many celebrity guests including Rich Piana, Joey Swoll, CT Fletcher, Kris Gethin, Larissa Reis.
Anyone can compete in the Super League by just filling out the form on the organization’s website, with “pro card” opportunities coming shortly after the first Super League Event. There are two ways you can become a pro; one is by getting superhuman scores and having a good social media presence, or two, by beating a pro in the Super League’s official rankings which will go live this August.
