How do you prepare for a workout? What do you eat? What do you think? Wether it’s mental or physical, what’s your preworkout routine?
Going into a wod (workout of the day), I generally like to eat a little bit of protein and a little bit of fat. I feel like I’ve got a lot more energy going into a workout with a little bit of food in me, not too much though, trust me I’ve done that and it’s a bad choice. You have to mess with it a bit before you find what works for you. Seriously, experiment. Play with your nutrition a bit. My advice is to try something and stick with it for a few weeks. Some people adapt slower and might need a little more time to adjust, so don’t do it for just a couple weeks and proclaim that it didn’t work. Make a choice, stick to it. My other advice for that is, don’t change too many things at once. Pick one, maybe two things and hold onto that for, again, at least a month. Then try other things. Avoid the shotgun effect. Grabbing so many different things that you don’t know what is actually working and what isn’t.
Mentally, I go into a wod with a game plan. How many reps am I going to do before I rest? How many rounds do I think I’m going to get in that AMRAP? What’s my pace going to be for the reps? Am I going balls to the wall or am I going to pace myself? Yes, these are all things I think about. So, what do you think about before going into it? Post to comments.
