don’t worry, i know it is hard to eat right before a WOD. so here are some tips to get you prepped for the day ahead of time:
lunch-salad with walnuts and almonds or chicken breast with spinach and avocado smoothie… you don’t want anything heavy in your stomach when you start a WOD! about 2 hours before your workout do something light, like 30 minutes spinning on an indoor trainer incorporate protein into each meal that day try to hit your macros. eg. 600g carbs for dinner, 400g protein grams for breakfast and 200+cals at lunch this will keep energy up during a workout which can be tough after a night out
i find meals within 30 mins of my workouts help me go harder longer because i have been well fed
how much protein should i eat in one meal? where should i get my protein from? how many eggs can you have in one sitting??!! these are all questions asked by so many people who struggle their first couple times eating ‘clean’. it really isn’t as hard as everyone tells us. if we treat our bodies right, then we will feel great at the end of the day! just remember that food is fuel not punishment LOL #RDMF
When Crossfit Says 42 Kettlebells Swings, Is It Per Arm Or Total?
Row, Row, Row Your Way to a Better Body! So You Want to Give Crossfit a Try? Your Guide To The Insanity Bear Hug. I love the bear hug from Insanity Next Level. It’s similar to the bear stance from Insanity Max: Ultimate, but it feels easier because of the smaller numbers and more bent over position. This is a pretty basic move that isn’t going to whip you into shape, so I don’t really appreciate being called out for not doing it in my write-up about this workout. But if you have been training with Crossfit for a while then by all means add in some higher intensity movements like this one that weren’t explicitly prescribed when you joined! If what I said upsets anyone let me know and we can talk about why its no big deal. [Insanity XT 2nd Edition] [Insanity Fit Pack 2nd Edition] [Workout 1] [Workout 2] [Workout 3] [Workout 4]
Make Fit Happen
” is actually not an all-encompassing program of exercises, but more like a lengthy list of different fitness techniques. One chapter, for example, covers dance and yoga forms dance routines (more than 20), free weights (ten pairs of dumbbells), Pilates exercise classes (nine) and body weight circuit training routines (five). “Many people read the book before they start playing on their computer or opening up Fitbit stats to see just how active they really are during the day. We live our lives out loud anyway. And I think that some people who might not have thought about starting an exercise routine will be motivated to do so now that the book is showing them what else they can do besides cycling or doing sit ups,” she says. “So it ends up being somewhat shape shifting exercise program for readers too.” The challenge with “Fit Happens” for her was finding something new each year—a way to push herself apart from other writers working on health issues. Usually there were no challenges at all—she looked forward to coming up with one every day as she wrote each project from scratch—but this time felt different because she wanted to offer a consistently useful resource for readers looking for ways to make exercising fun again in their own lives, safe again instead of scary and unreachable once more.
