We’ve got a fun chipper planned for today and since we’ve been heavy on the barbell with squats and cleans the past few days, we are shifting the loads to body weight and kettlebells.
Its also been extremely hot this week. Please make sure you are drinking PLENTY OF WATER and fueling your body with good foods. We should all be drinking more than the 8 glasses recommended a day (in fact, men should consume 13 and women at least 9) but eating foods high in water content can provide the added bonus of fiber, electrolytes and vitamins.
Not only does it replenish lost water, but also electrolytes that allow for better performance. Some good choices include:
Celery: 96 percent water and provides sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, iron and zinc
Watermelon: 95 percent water and rich in vitamin C
Bell Peppers: 92 percent water and rich in vitamin C
Cucumbers: 95 percent water and provides calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium
Strawberries: 92 percent water and rich in potassium
Cantaloupe: 90 percent water and rich in potassium
So drink up! And eat up!
