Ece is looking solid in her overhead squat. She is doing the New Year Whole Life Challenge. Are you?
It's Whole Life Wednesday and this week we are sharing another Off-Season WLC Skill Practice. The Off-Season WLC Skill Practices are mini-challenges intended to help you fine-tune different aspects of your health and wellness. Offered between Challenges, these weekly practices address fitness, nutrition, stress reduction, productivity, and personal connection — because health is about far more than food and the gym (and we could all use a little practice). Here's this week's skill practice:
Take a 10-Minute Walk Alone Each Day This Week

The Whole Life Challenge asks you to examine your life through a different lens – your physical health, your emotional health, and your overall lifestyle. This eight-week challenge will improve your daily habits, leaving you happier, healthier, and more in control of your outcomes. If you’re ready for a change, this is your opportunity.

Overhead Squat 95/65#
Although this is a Hero workout, Jeremy is also a Beyond the Whiteboard Light Fitness Level workout. Do it as Rx and the score will count towards your Fitness Level.
Jeremy is all about speed, shoulder stability and strength, balance, core strength, agility, and flexibility.
Jeremy was originally a CrossFit Kids workout (using broomstick for overhead squats). In 2008 CrossFit created Jeremy to honor three year old Jeremy Bloniasz who drowned on Thursday, July 6, 2006. Jeremy's family was close to many in CrossFit HQ, and in addition to creating the workout to honor Jeremy, CrossFit Kids has generously supported the Infant Swimming Resource.
