All Inclusive

Whether you’re new to competition or a seasoned pro, The SiD Inferno Pairs Series is for you! The events are open to all and there are no qualifiers. Bring your whole box for a weekend of fitness and fun!


The workouts don’t just challenge your individual fitness, but your ability to work as a team – competing with and for your best mate will push you further than you thought possible.


SiD Inferno Pairs programming is designed for everyone, no matter your experience. We have removed complex movements that take months and years to refine. We test teamwork, how big your engine is, how strong you are and how tough your will is!


Burpees, box jumps, push-ups, air squats, sit-ups, lunges, jumps, etc. Sometimes these movements may be weighted (sandbags or vests) and/or involve equipment, e.g. soft plyoboxes. There are no pull ups, ring dips, muscle ups, toes to bar, handstand walks, etc.


Deadlifts, power cleans & power snatches, front squats, push-press, thrusters, ground-to-overhead exercises, shoulder-to-overhead exercises, etc. These movements can be executed with barbells, dumbbells, medicine balls, slam balls, sandbags, or kettlebells.

Weights are kept to a level commensurate with the event’s aims but one repetition max tests are included to explore an athlete’s strength.


Conditioning is tested using indoor rowers, ski ergs and air assault bikes. Expect running!
