Are you ready to get uncomfortable in 2022? As you’ve heard from enduraLAB, “Comfort is a slow death.” We preach health and longevity all day, every day, so comfort isn’t really our style. This January, we will launch the eL 45 Challenge. Based on the 75 Hard Challenge created by Andy Frisella, the challenge will get you stronger, healthier, give you more grit, and make you a little more uncomfortable.
We designed this challenge with ALL of our members in mind. eL 45 can be done in all different formats. For someone who wants consistency, you can focus on the basics of the challenge. For someone really wanting to make a big change, you can choose to go a little harder. As long as you participate, this challenge WILL help you. Plus, this challenge is free for all enduraLAB Members, so good luck trying to find an excuse 😉
There are six simple rules. But simple does not mean easy. Let’s get to it.
- Do one enduraLAB workout every day.
Yes, this means Sunday. Starting in 2022, we will be posting optional Sunday workouts in the app for our athletes to do at home.
- Get 8,000 steps every single day.
We know 10,000 seems to be the magic number, but we want this goal to be a little more attainable. 8,000 steps is approximately 4 miles. If you’re short on steps at the end of the day, go for a quick walk to get that number up.
- Drink your bodyweight in water.
One ounce equals one pound. So if you weigh 150 pounds, you’re shooting for 150 ounces of water per day. We have some good news… coffee counts as water! But don’t try to survive on just coffee for 45 days…
- Read 10 pages of a book every single day.
You can read more than 10 pages, just not less. The enduraLAB Team will be reading one of these three books, and we encourage you to pick one and read with us: The Comfort Crisis, Shoe Dog, or Atomic Habits.
- Follow a structured diet.
This can be any diet you want. Whether it is Whole30, counting macros, or cutting out artificial sugars, you do you. However, we HIGHLY recommend trying intermittent fasting. If you have questions about picking your diet, book a consultation with Isis. We also have a blog post that talks through a few of our favorites... Read it here.
- Spend 10 minutes recovering each day.
Recovery is broad here. You can use the HyperVolt, roll out on a foam roller or lacrosse ball, meditate, sauna, or stretch. Just make sure you are dedicating 10 minutes per day to feeling better- mentally or physically.
