How to: Uploading Your Video for Submission

Wodapalooza Bayfront Park

The WZA Online Challenge is almost over and with that, video submission is right around the corner

This year we are requesting submission of WOD 4 & 5 and WOD 6! Before uploading make sure your videos meet the standards for video submission - announcing your name, showing weight used, and having clock in view. If you do, you are all set to submit!

We’re not all as tech savants, so to help, we want to offer you some tips on how to upload your videos and submit them. 

First note, we will only accept video links from Daily Motion, YouTube and/or Vimeo. If you do not already have one, you will need to make an account with one of the above platforms. 

When uploading, don't use background music with copyright protection, it may be blocked. If you do have music in the background of video that results in the video being blocked, go into settings and “mute” the sound. Furthermore, make sure you set your video for PUBLIC viewing.

HEADS UP! Upload videos with plenty of time to spare, uploading large video files can take a long time! 

If you are new to YouTube, by default YouTube requires you to request a limit increase to upload a video longer than 15 minutes.  To do so, follow the instructions in the link below -

Once you’ve uploaded your video to the internet:

  1. Log into the WZA Portal at
  2. Click on the workout being requested
  3. Click 'Change'
  4. Paste your YouTube, Vimeo, or Daily Motion video link
  5. Click 'Submit Score
