BMP Calisthenics League
About the BCL
The BarMania Calisthenics League (BCL) is a highly competitive competition for professional calisthenics athletes to show their skills and fight for the BCL championship belt. The intention of the BCL is to bring the calisthenics and street workout movement to the forefront of the mainstream fitness industry. So the sport of Calisthenics and the athletes get its deserved recognition.
The athletes are invited to compete head-to-head through a series of 3 different matchdays in front of some of the world’s most iconic BarManiaPro Calisthenics parks. After 3 matchdays which will be held each 3 months, the total scores will be counted. Finally there will be a 4th matchday for the top 5 athletes. This is the BCL championship match. The real winner will emerge during these battles and take home the glorious BCL Championship belt.
Judging in all rounds consist of four judges, each one judging the overall impression based on the following criteria:
- Overall impression
These judges will award each athlete a score for each round. The results will be presented and handed over to the athletes on the official BCL scorecard.
To have a more fair result we will have the audience as a 5th judge for every battle. With a decibel meter we will indicate for who the crowd cheers the most. The athlete with the highest score wins extra poinst.
The judges will give each athlete a score after every round.
