The event hosted in Miami, Florida, is always incredibly entertaining, showcasing a plethora of incredible performers while also giving opportunities to scaled competitors, masters, teams, and even adaptive athletes.

What to Expect At the 2024 TYR Wodapalooza?

1. Rules & Prize Money

This year, we will be seeing new divisions compete, namely masters and teams. Additionally, the champions of the Latin American throwdowns won’t be competing here but in the LatAm Cup, which is held at the same time.

To add more news, TYR Wodapalooza has partnered with the PFAA and will be placing particular emphasis on athlete safety, as well as providing guidelines that ensure fair play. For the functional fitness community, this is the first time a major event will partner with the PFAA. 

In addition, this year’s prize purse will increase by $ 67,000 and be more evenly distributed between the top and bottom-placed athletes.

2. Workouts

So far, we know about three of the individual workouts and one of the team workouts, but more are being released as the day of the start comes closer. “Cortadito” is one of the WODs that individual athletes will face, and it includes muscle-ups, parallel bar dips, and a barbell movement.

“Deja vu” is the name of another workout that consists of three parts – two AMRAPs and one for time, all with the same movements. Finally, we have “Double or Nothin’,” which is essentially a snatch complex. 

For the Teams competition, we know one of the workouts will be “Worm Fran,” which has worm thrusters and several pulling gymnastics moves. There’s also the “Uno Dos Tres,” which has synchro double-unders, barbell work, and a few bodyweight exercises such as the handstand push-up and walk.
