MVMNT Strong – From the Whole Life Challenge to powerlifting to Olympic weightlifting to the Open, Team MVMNT put on a great showing this weekend.
Whole Life Challenge – After six weeks of tracking nutrition, sleep, exercise, mobility and journaling the entire experience, the Whole Life Challenge is 18.DONE. And two out of the three Open Team Captains took home first and second place wins. Turn Down for WOD’s sidekick, Andrew, took third followed by his mother-in-law. How freaking awesome is that??
Massive congratulations to every single person that started and finished strong. Six weeks feels like a lifetime when you’re trying to make life changing habits. We look forward to taking on the next WLC with you!
The 2018 Arnold Classic Sports Festival
Becci Holcomb is your new deadlift only Female American record holder with a 562 lbs white light lift.
Great time at the #arnoldclassic and #ao1 I went 4 for 6. I haven’t lifted heavy in over 4 weeks due to a knee injury. This past Sunday was the first time I lifted with no pain. I hit 77 and 79k, missed 81k on the snatch. I hit 101k, missed 104k and came out and PR 105k. This gave me a 3 PR total. Thanks @ksauro33 for letting me do this. Thanks @dare_to_express_yourself for believing in me that I can do it. Now time for 18.2 Thanks @nodestination and @ivy_createsmvmnt for letting me train at the @mvmntgym. #rouge #mastersweightlifting #comptrainmasters #vulcanstrength #basic
