DRINK WATER!

The weather’s finally starting to heat up, so it’s time for your regular reminder to hydrate.  Being even a little bit dehydrated can have a large, negative impact on your performance, and performance is what we’re chasing here.  How much water should you be drinking?  Half your body weight (lbs.) in ounces (oz.), plus 20 ounces for every hour of exercise, plus a little extra for the heat/humidity.

Only water or coconut water counts towards your daily total ounces consumed.  This is by no means an invitation to stop and get a drink in the middle of a workout.  If you’re doing even an average job of hydrating you will not drop from dehydration during a 5 to 20 minute metcon.  It’s free money you can put into your performance bank account that you could be leaving on the table.  If you want it, just make the effort to go get it, and drink up!

  1. Press – 80kg (84kg for 1)
    WOD – 12 + 30 (I think that’s how to write it?). 24″ Box jumps in place of OHS (possible sports hernia).

    20 min AMRAP was deadly.

  2. Press — 30kg

    WOD — 7 + 28 @ 55#

    I thoroughly enjoy the looks of confusion as I walk into the office with dirty quads and chalk on my face.

  3. Press: 45kg (50kg x 4)
    WOD: 3 + 35 (my shoulders are fried–not happy with myself, but it is what it is)
