Winter has arrived. The snow is on the ground and cold is in the air. The beanies get added to sweatpants and hoodies. The hands start pulling and the bars start lifting. #deadcember is finally here. Nothing better than testing the mind, body, and spirit with a 21 day bar pulling roller coaster ride that delivers a monster pull and more importantly a new outlook on life. #deadcember is not a one or two day challenge. No folks, it is a journey. A daily programmed bar pulling regime that welcomes all who want to party. The 2018 campaign had participation from all over the globe. Is the plan easy? Absolutely not, but it is highly doable. Start throwing your excuses in the trash can now. The planned routine has its highs and lows just like life, but with it we get to all go through this month together. You literally have thousands of others who are there to spot you. We all have one another’s back for an entire month.
Where Do I Get the Program?
Follow @mckimdaniel and @sorinex_deadcember to get your daily deadlifting content. Also, follow @sorinex for more awesome content. How you #deadcember is up to you, but many use this program as a template. Each evening, the next day’s plan will be posted. This will give you the sets and reps that you can lay in bed and dream about as you sleep and recover.
How Do I Participate?
The weight won’t lift itself. You have to get in the trenches and discover things about yourself that you never knew. Get a partner or two (or five), lock arms, and embrace the journey. Maybe challenge your whole staff and/or gym members to participate together, rocking this year’s #deadcember t-shirts. Seeing content and everyone’s hard work is the best part. Post your work, that awesome lift, that struggle that everyone is enduring. Please be sure to include the #deadcember hashtag and tag @sorinex, @mckimdaniel, and @deadcemberofficial Utilize your storyline and show some awesome content.
And the Winner Is?
Everyone is a winner. Anytime you have people getting stronger together, you have winning. You will win bigger quads, a new mentality, forge friendships, and a mental clock countdown until next year.
Monday, December 30th. Mark it in your calendar, write it on your mirror, post it to your computer. The day where everyone comes together around the world to show the work they’ve put in all month. Host your own PR Party, live stream your event and #deadcember it.
