This year there will be two categories for the challenge: Body Composition and Performance. The mandatory requirements for both categories will be:
Body Composition Challenge:
This category will focus on the loss of body fat as well as the gain of lean muscle mass. Before and after pics are mandatory (full body pics from the front, side, and back) and should be taken with a digital time stamp within two days of the start date. Keep the photos for your own reference, but should you win, we may ask for them to post as a success story.
This category will focus on improvement in multiple modalities: strength, speed, strength to bodyweight ratio, endurance, etc. Your results will be heavily weighted on your benchmark workouts, both before and after. Food logs are mandatory but should also include notes of how the food may/may not have impacted your performance.
Post any Challenge related questions to comments. Save the nutrition questions for Marcus’ Q&A to be held after the Strongman Seminar this Saturday at the gym. Please pick up your Whole 30 booklets in the office if you are participating in the challenge and did not get one last year.
