The Reach Challenge

The Reach Challenge

Welcome to the Reach Challenge!

Over the next 4 weeks, we’re combining functional training with running so you can move with the strength and speed of a hybrid athlete.

Throughout this challenge, you’ll follow a “less is more” full body split with running on the days in between.

WHAT YOU WILL ACHIEVE
By completing the Reach Challenge you can expect to:
✓ Build functional strength
✓ Improve running performance
✓ Optimize energy & recovery
✓ Injury-proof your hips, knees, and feet
✓ Reach a whole new level of fitness!

WHO IS IT FOR
The Reach Challenge is for you if:
✓ You have weightlifting experience and are looking to get into (or improve) your running
✓ You’re training for a 5km to 10km running goal*
✓ You’re ready to try a “less is more” approach to optimize energy & recovery
✓ You can commit to 3x, 30-45 minute weightlifting workouts per week and running on the days in between
✓ You want to train like an athlete as part of our Team!

*Guidance is provided for how to adjust if you’re training for a different running goal

Throughout the Reach Challenge you will explore a variety of training techniques, including:
✓ Dynamic Stretching and Mobility Warm Up Routines
✓ Full Body Weightlifting Workouts to build your foundation of strength
✓ Plyometric Exercises to build power through your lower body
✓ Stability Exercises to injury-proof your hips, knees, and feet
✓ Mobility Flows to support range of motion and avoid imbalances
✓ Functional Core Workouts to strengthen your body from the inside out

WORKOUT DURATION
The Reach Challenge is based around our “less is more” approach to training. You can expect full body workouts between 30-45 minutes each with 15-30 minute optional mobility and functional core workouts on the days in between.

Run duration will vary depending on your ability.

DIFFICULTY
The Reach Challenge is recommended if you have weightlifting experience and are looking to get into (or improve) your running.

There are two levels of running workouts provided, each following a 3 day running split:

LEVEL 1 is for you if:
✓ You can walk 30 minutes continuously
✓ You’re active most weeks
✓ Your goal is to run continuously

LEVEL 2 is for you if:
✓ You can run 30 minutes continuously
✓ You’re running most weeks
✓ Your goal is to run further, faster

If you’re a more experienced runner or following a different running split, see the included RESOURCES section for how to adapt your schedule.
