Monthly Challenges

Enter your ‘added sugar’ free days here:
May 2021 Challenge Tracker

This month’s challenge is focused on fuel (The Queen).  We will break our addiction to sugar by abstaining from ‘added sugar’ each day of the month.  That means, check EVERY food label before putting said food/drink into your month. Natural sugars are good in moderation (e.g. honey, fruit).  1 day w/o added sugar = 1 pt. 1 day w/o added sugar + Boot camp* = 2 pts.
Gold: 30 (1/day)
Silver: 20 (~1/day)
Bronze: 15 (1/every other day)
Notes:
If you question whether or not you can put it in your mouth . . . . . the answer is usually NO. So don’t ask.

  • Focus on the Cleveland PAX Team Challenge!!!!!     *double dip posts count (Blue Collar + Morg = 2)

Previous Challenges

March 2021

The monthly challenge is squats with a weight multiplier. Let’s aim for parallel-to-the-ground quads (i.e. a full squat). Quarter squats get quarter-results. A bodyweight rep = 1 BWR. CMU @25lbs = 1.5BWR, 50lbs = 2BWR, 100lbs = 3BWR, etc.

Squats
Gold: 4000 (~130 BWR/day)
Silver: 3000 (~100 BWR/day)
Bronze: 2000 (~65 BWR/day)

Meditation
Gold: 20-28 days
Silver: 14-19 days
Bronze: 8-13 days

Set a timer, turn off your notifications, silence your outer world, sit comfortably and breathe normally. Your aim is for 5 minutes of stillness. Create stillness in the external space around you and practice creating a stillness in your mind. Roots will send out tips and tricks, mantras and other meditations throughout the month in our new #meditation Slack channel. Check your ego and try something new in this age of constant distraction.
