Winter Classic Pregame Prep!!

Hey ONE!!! The Winter Classic is just THREE short days away!!!! (IMPORTANT – IF YOU DO NOT YET HAVE A TEAM OR HAVE ANY LAST MINUTE TEAM INQUIRIES, PLEASE EMAIL LINDSEY – lindsey.johnson@reebok.com) THANKS!!!!! As the excitement of competition nears don’t forget a few key points when it comes to preparation and maintenance: FUEL your body properly and have some gas in the tank prior to competition: Eating about 2 hours away is what I always try to shoot for – get some protein and good carbs in your tank with some time to digest and you’ll be ready to roll! HYDRATE – your muscle endurance and overall performance will be optimized when you have properly hydrated prior to competition. This process needs to start the night before competition, during, and after. Waiting 30 minutes before go time to take a drink of water is too late. As we used to say in the Marines, “hydration is continuous.” REST. Get a good night sleep. It goes without saying but this is often overlooked. Doug Katona of CrossFit Endurance says, “there’s no such thing as over-training, just under-recovery.” After the day is finished, plop down on the floor, take out the foam roller, target those tight spots, get lose, and then rest and relax. GET IN THE ZONE. Whether rocking out to AC/DC’s “Thunderstruck” gets you ready to hit a new 1 Rep Max, or Carly Rae Jepson’s “Call Me Maybe,” makes you want to do burpees all day (just kidding, there’s probably no song that would ever make anyone want to do burpees all day…), turn those jams up loud...
