1) Recovery is just as important to obtaining results as is training, if not more. If you don’t recovery properly, you will not be able to adapt and push hard and fast in your future workouts. Your rate of adaptation will diminish in all areas. Recovery means resting, having the right nutrition to rebuild your body, and maintaining your body through self myofascial release (rolling out) and stretching. The WODs are fun and I don’t like missing any, but checking the ego at the door in order to keep long term goals on track is part of the path towards success. If you’re not recovering fast enough to support max efforts during the WODs, come talk to our coaching staff to find out what you need to do.
2) Hydration basics: Intake AT LEAST half your body weight in ounces of water and add 10-20oz more h2o for every 1 hour of exercise. (Ex: 150lbs = 75oz + ~15oz for 1 hour of workout = 90oz)
3) The mind, body, and spirit are all connected and can feed or detract from each other. Get them all on the same path, working towards the same goals, to help you obtain the greatest performance as possible. Your abilities will vary day to day, but you always have control over your effort.
4) An alternative to buying organic food from supermarkets ($$) is to visit your local farmers market. Check one out, talk to the growers, and you’ll find plenty of more affordable, fresher, more nutritional, and tastier options than you will from the big chains. Much thanks to Carol and Marvin for bringing in and sharing their vegetables that they grew in their own organic garden!
