What’s one thing you can start doing immediately to help improve your workouts?
Consume something during your workouts. While water is important, it is not a source of energy. One of the easiest things you can do is to consume some carbs during your workout. It doesn’t have to be a ton of carbs, but some simple sugars will help fuel the movements you’re doing.
Quick break down with out going overly sciency on you: Carbs are the energy source for high intensity exercise. No matter what. This means even if you have stopped eating carbs for whatever reason, your body will still have to convert other sources to carbs. This includes fats, which take a very long time to break down. A CrossFit work out is never long enough to be considered a true endurance workout, and most workouts are broken up in to short bursts of activity (see:met cons). This means you’re using all carbs, all workout. The simplest form of carbs is sugar, and luckily it’s easy to consume in liquid form… most of us don’t want to eat a sweet potato mid rowing interval.
So grab some liquid carbs next workout. Don’t go crazy, 30-40g of carbs will do. Gatorade, Vitargo, etc. Any will do. Get some energy back mid workout.
Members friends and family…We have had a fantastic time at our old facility on Whittier Blvd and we are looking forwards to what this new facility brings. We have moved all our equipment over to our new building on Philadelphia and classes are in full swing.
As we complete the transition all regular class hours will be open. Please pardon the mess as we finish moving everything into its proper place. I’m sure after all the madness of the new programming you wont really notice the mess around you. Come in for a workout and check out the new CrossFit Whittier digs!
New Address: 12217 Philadelphia St., Whittier, CA 90601
You will find parking all around the building and side streets on either side of the building. There is also street parking on the street in front of and across the street. Just a few steps away you will find lots of parking in front of Whittier High School on either side of the street. Our lot also has a few spots in it. We look forward to coaching you at the new facility.
