The Shoulder Press – [video]
It’s time for our annual Stop the Slop Challenge! It starts TODAY! If you need to weigh-in then please make it up tomorrow with your coach before you workout.
What is Stop the Slop?
It’s our 30 Day Gym-wide Challenge to clean up your eating and increase your fitness level. There are 2 sides to the challenge. You can do one (recommended), both (highly recommended), or neither (not recommended). It is a community building event designed to help all of us be more accountable to start the new year off right. It helps drive you into the gym, eat better, make goals and see results. By doing this as a gym, you will get help, encouragement, support, new food recipes or ideas, and just have FUN while doing it!
You can complete/attempt a Whole30
(recommended if you haven’t done one; see us for the Whole9 Nutrition Guide/Whole30 Booklet), or eat nutritious and more paleo food choices, and/or complete a cleanse, or cut out whatever bad food vices/demons that you have been thinking about trying to beat.
This challenge is a baseline type measurement WOD that will be programmed on Tuesday, 1/6 for all classes (make-ups on Wed). You will test yourself and record your time and whatever your scale was (RX/scale). After 30 days we will re-test the same WOD using the same scale to measure % time improvement. Ideally your nutrition choices have been strict and healthier for the past 30 days which will help you realize improvement as well in your fitness/performance.
Who should participate and is there a cost?
EVERYONE should do it. The cost is $25 per challenge for anyone who wishes to try and win either challenge for most % improvement. For the Nutrition Challenge we will measure % bodyweight lost. Weigh-in is on Monday 1/5 (make-up Tuesday 1/6). After 30 days we will have a final weigh-in and crown the winner with the highest % lost. For the Performance challenge it is the most % time improvement on the Stop the Slop WOD. We will pool all entry money into the pot and share the winnings with cool prizes for each winner.
