The videos must be completely unedited and uncut from beginning to end. Any evidence of tinkering will instantly disqualify the athlete. For a general description of how to video, see here ... [wmv] [mov]
The video is solely for documenting the workout. The camera should be positioned so that proper range of motion can be determined. Use a tripod if at all possible. Move the camera as little as possible to ensure proper coverage.
An additional person with a stopwatch must be in the frame for the whole workout (the stopwatch does not have to be visible). The time on the stopwatch should be presented to the camera at the end of the workout. There should be one obvious close up of the weights to validate official loads.
Special consideration for Workout 2 (Jackie). You must show the rower monitor at zero for the start. Without cutting, the athlete must be shown initiating the row, and at the end, the camera should show the monitor at 1000 meters or more. A description of this last part is in the How To Video.
The videos must be uploaded uncut and unedited to a public forum. Vimeo is our first choice, but YouTube or any other public arena is acceptable. You can upload each workout separately or put them together, your choice.
To be considered for the Last Chance Qualifier, you must email your times (each workout alone and the total combined for the three) and the link(s) to the video(s) to email@example.com before 0600 PDT on May 31, 2009.
We are expecting hundreds of submissions, so there will be little to no tolerance of missed guidelines. Questions can also be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
