MARCH SWIM WODS

and
March 30th, 4:30pm-6:00pm.

RSVP's are needed by 3:30pm the Friday before each Swim WOD in order to accommodate scheduling and possible class segmentation.

As usual, our Swim WODs are more like swim practice than a standard "Swim WOD". We are throwing you constantly varied, functional movements done at a high intensity...but 100% in the pool, no land work.

Please come prepared to swim hard, swim fast!

HYDRATION AND POST WORK OUT NUTRITION

If you wanted the best performance out of your Ferrari, you wouldn't pump 85 octane into the tank, right?

Your body is finest machine ever made and you drive it hard. This is just a reminder to continue taking the best care of your body before, during and after your workouts to ensure you achieve your best!

We are talking about:

1)Adequate hydration, ALL DAY LONG!!
By the time your mouth feels dry, your hydration has slipped. Muscles are largely fluid filled, so the smallest slip in hydration WILL make reaching your peak performance nearly impossible. Nature's soft drink = Water. Drink early. Drink often.

2) Electrolytes
For especially hard charging workouts, We suggest PowerAde Zero, Coconut Water or another low sugar, high electrolyte drink during and immediately after the WOD.

3)Post workout Nutrition is CRITICAL...
for continued performance gains and shorter recovery times. We are talking PROTEIN and we encourage good carbs to be consumed along side it.


Please let us know if you have ANY questions or comments.

In health and laughter,

Shawn And Rachel
