2/29/16 - DM Ranch – WLC WEEK 7: Use It or Lose It

Our favorite bacon suppliers Diamond Mountain Ranch are the ‘Week 7’ sponsor. As a California farm with a passion for meat, they are our go to source of all cuts of beef, bison, chicken, and pork.

They’ve been a hit during the challenge especially with their compliant bacon, free of sugar. Want to order? Every week we collect orders in our WLC Facebook group for Monday pick-up at the gym!

PRIZES: A perfect score in the lifestyle category puts you in a drawing for FREE BACON!

As we approach the last two weeks of the challenge, we’ve got some WLC coaching for you. Want to be unique in this world? Finish what you start. Forget the leaderboard and how well (or not so well) you may be doing. The simple act of finishing what you started can have an impact that will reverberate in your life.

News flash! It's a hoax. The "grind" isn't a thing and, no, the struggle is not real. I mean, I guess it could be if that's all that comes out of your mouth, but consider this. If you walk around all day thinking that you're "fighting the good fight," making it to the gym when you can to cut down on a debit you have piling ...

You hear the coach's cues and descriptions of movements. You may notice deviations from certain standards of movements, especially in beginners. Have you ever noticed two different athletes conforming to basic points of performance that still look different?It happens all the time. In fact, it'd be harder to find two athle ...
