Monday, June 30
First of all, thank you to everyone who came out for our tubing trip on Saturday! Also, a big thanks to Luke for hosting everyone for a grill out afterwards. Keep an eye out each month for upcoming group outings; everyone is always invited and we love it when big groups come out. It's a great way to get to know each other outside of the gym and sweaty gym clothes! The summer months are upon us which means that we are in for some rather warm days. There's no doubt that we sweat more (girls, you glisten more) during workouts this time of the year, and sometimes we're even dripping (ultra-glistening) from just the warm-up. This absolutely means that hydration is more important than ever for your workout quality and your overall well-being. Pay attention to this throughout your entire day and continue to hydrate all day, not just when you're at the gym. This article is from a CrossFit magazine called "The Box" and it discusses hydration in general and as it applies to CrossFit. Take a few minutes to read this article and get a basic idea of when you should be hydrating, how much liquid to drink, and what types of drinks are best. These factors can influence how you feel during your workouts, recovery, and day-to-day life.
We are going to be re-testing some one rep maxes coming up. This will give some of you the chance to test in case you missed out last time and it will give the rest of you a chance to compare where you were about eight weeks ago. If your numbers don't sky-rocket up from last time DO NOT be discouraged! Gaining strength is a slow and steady process, and you WILL make gains as time goes on if you continue to put in the work.
