Drink It Up!

Front Squat (105#M, 75#W)
Double Unders

About 20 minutes before your workout, have a nice big ol' glass of water. The 20 minutes gives the water time to get into your system before you really start raising your body temperature. Of course, you'll want to follow your workout with plenty of hydration, and unless you're playing for a professional sports team, water (not Gatorade or some other sports drink) is actually the best way to replace your lost fluids. Sports drinks can be full of sugar, and for the relatively short workouts that we CrossFitters do, our electrolyte loss isn't sufficient to warrant it.

Enjoy today's's super fun!
