Amanda Nicole Smith 100 Day Contortion Challenge 2, Series Intro 0 Comments

Today is an exciting day for me! After months of hard work, my goals are finally becoming a reality. Today I am launching The Flexibility Challenge, a private community where increasing your flexibility is the main goal!

you can still save 20% on 100 day membership passes until March 31st!

30 day membership passes are now for sale!!

The core of this program is the consistent basic warmup and dynamic stretching routine. These are a huge part of your flexibility success!

There is also a whole guide to stretching, so if you are unsure what to do next, don’t worry it’s covered.

Tracking progress and sharing it with others has been a very important part in my journey. Progress photos kept me inspired and when I shared them with others, I was encouraged to continue pushing forwards. Little centimeters of success were and still are celebrated!

It was important for me to add the ability for you all to be able to upload your progress photos and share your journey with the community easily and effortlessly.

The most exciting part about the community, that will grow with time, is the forum. One of the forums that I believe will be most popular is the Community Support Forum. Here you can share your stretching experiences, anyone with a membership pass can ask a question or reply to existing questions.

You can sign up for personalized support via email or private forums.

You can also signup for video chat private lessons.

There is just so much you can do, you’ll just have to check it out for yourself!

The Flexibility Challenge

Last Year’s 100 Day Contortion Challenge

As you may already know, last year I did a 100 Day Contortion Challenge. My results were incredible, I was really amazed at how far I had come in just 100 days! I had made some tips on how to start a challenge for yourself but many of you asked where you could actually find the flexibility challenge. I knew I needed to build something for you all to participate! Well here it is 🙂

Since the 100 day contortion challenge I have been continuing my practice, not as vigorously but enough to still make small improvements. 

I also started going to semi private lessons with Shelly Guy, an amazing contortionist here in the DMV area.

Progress Since the 100 Day Contortion Challenge

Here are some results from my weekly contortion classes. I still had to do stretches at home to keep loose!

You will find me doing handstands just about anywhere, the only way to get better is to keep practicing!

Week 1 in Contortion Class

First time ever doing a chest stand and being able to touch my feet to the ground. It definitely helps to have a partner push you down.

Week 3 in Contortion Class

It takes a minute to see the difference but you can tell my legs are more parallel to the ground in week 3. I also gained the ability to be able to kick over by myself! Hurray!

Week 4 in Contortion Class

 Over split practice with weights, is a new one I never tried, but it works!

Week 5 in Contortion Class

Week 5 was monumental! I finally got my feet flat on the ground and my neck seems to be much more flexible.

Thought this 100 day flexibility challenge I will focusing on chair bridges so that I engage my upper back more than my lower back.

….and now the fun begins!

The Flexibility Challenge

I have written out my goals, my commitment and strength and weaknesses in my profile.

I am also eating big bowls of salads, drinking lots of herbal infusions, following my immune boosting habits and eating big meals at night

Now I’m ready for the official start date, April 1st, to begin my 4 days per week 2 hours per practice routine!

I will be posting my weekly progress. 🙂

I challenge you all to reach you flexibility goals with me!
