League of Legends streamer Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp has been involved in plenty of Twitch Rivals tournaments in his time, but his next competition will have a twist. Instead of showcasing his League of Legends talents on the Rift, Tyler1 will be flexing his muscles IRL in a powerlifting tournament.
Yes, you read that right, Tyler1’s next Twitch Rivals competition will see him perform exercises live on stream for the first time. We all know that he’s got more guns than Call of Duty, but the American has always been hesitant to give them a proper workout on camera. We don’t entirely blame him – who wants to have thousands of people watch you sweat? But, never one to back down from a challenge, Tyler1 will be chalking his hands and doing his stretches to ready himself for the most physical stream of his career.
Tyler1 is one of ten participants who will be split into two teams. His girlfriend ‘Macaiyla’ will also be joining, as well as World of Warcraft streamer and bodybuilder Jackson ‘Bajheera’ Bliton, and other fitness streamers such as Cassidy ‘MartiniMonsters’ and fitness streaming couple ‘TominationTime’.
Each participant will have to complete four exercises – so 20 exercises per team – from a list of three lifts (squats, deadlifts, and bench presses) and two bodyweight exercises (pull-ups and push-ups). Lifts will be judged by maximum weight lifted, and bodyweight exercises will be judged by the number of reps completed within the time limit. Points will be dished out based on performances, and each team’s total will be tallied up to determine the winner.
