2016 Stop the Slop Challenge results are in:
The Performance Challenge AND the Nutrition Challenge winner is Michael M. (pictured above) with a 24.1% time improvement in the “Stop the Slop 4.0” Performance WOD. He PR’d by 3 minutes and 51 seconds in the retest! It was very close race (or WOD) to the top spot. Michael also won the Nutrition Challenge with 4.7% change in bodyweight over the course of the 30 day challenge. That’s a change of 8.4 lbs. lost in 30 days! This challenge was also close as there was one person right behind him by less than 0.5% difference.
Here’s the crazy thing. Michael really didn’t make much of a diet change other than to cut back significantly on his sugar and refined sugar intake. By avoiding bars, sweets and anything with sugar on the label everyday he dropped weight; which in turn drove a performance improvement. Dialing in your nutrition further to balancing your macronutrients (Fat, Protein, Carbs) and eating clean sources of those would yield even better results. Nutrition is the key to truly changing body composition and athletic performance.
- 2nd Place: Raquel (198 seconds/21.7% improvement)
Runner Up for the Nutrition Challenge:
- 2nd Place: Lou D. (10 lbs. lost/4.3% improvement)
For winning both challenges Michael will receive the following prize package:
- A choice of 2 Bags of Xendurance Extreme Endurance or SFH Protein or Push
- Choice of (1) SRCF Short Sleeve T-shirt or SRCF hat or SRCF Socks
Congrats and shout outs to everyone who participated in our 6th annual challenge. Whether you won a prize or not; the point of this 30 days was to clean up the nutrition, dial in your workout performance and consistency, and have a goal to work towards. Make those changes that helped you get healthier permanent!
