Whole Life Challenge – Want the inside scope on how athletes and coaches like Amelia eat to perform at high levels and look amazing in a bathing suit? Take a look at Amelia’s daily food intake here. Her blog post is complete with every meal, recipes and the macros for each meal.

Guess what? You can absolutely eat like this while doing the WLC (if that’s something you’re interested in). Double guess what?? We’re willing to bet you’ll be 100% more successful with ANY challenge working alongside your fellow gym goers instead of going it along. TRIPLE guess what??? If you want to be successful at any level, in addition to food choices, you need to be held accountable for how much sleep you’re getting, water you’re drinking and mobility work you’re doing. Help us help you help us.

If deep down you know your habits could use a little upgrade, you should join us. If you’re balking because of Wine Down Wednesday or giving up mocha latte’s for a few weeks, you NEED to join us. Each and every one of us should be able to take time off from the things that aren’t doing our bodies any good.

Warmup
Jump Rope 3 Minutes
Hip Mobility
Downdog Push-ups

Skill
5-10 Minutes

At this point the Progression should be familiar to everyone, so I want higher level members to work through it on their own, spending a little more time on the drills that are more challenging or important based on their individual needs. Lower level members will go through the sequence one time with the PVC to help commit the pattern to memory and as a functional warmup, following the direction of the Coach.

Levels 2-4
Barbell Snatch Progression (self directed, the Coach will be working with Level 0/1)

L3/4 – once through with empty bar, then add some weight and do the entire progression again
(like a partner complex with the emphasis on QUALITY)
L2 – start with pvc, then move to empty bar

Levels 0/1
Snatch Progression with PVC (one time through, with the Coach leading the drills)
10 Turkish Getups (5 per side, alternating)
then go right into the Strength work, without waiting for the higher levels to start.

Strength
