Summer heat can be Brutal on the body, especially during a High Intensity workout. This is why we Hydrate.
Unless you like feeling nauseas, passing out or having a heat stroke, we reccomend water. Make sure that you are drinking it throughout the day!
Try these tips to make sure you get an adequate amount of water in your system:
- Carry a water bottle with you at all times
- Make sure said water bottle holds at least 24 oz
- Set an alarm on your phone to go off 1 time per hour
- Drink when you feel thirsty
- Keep your water cold with ice, so that it is refreshing and you enjoy drinking it
That’s it! Stay on top of hydration and feel better in your next WOD.
