- Hydration- Hydration is very important for the body, especially when you are physically active. The body is made up of about 60% water, and we sweat during intense exercise, so it is important to stay hydrated to replenish the nutrients lost. Water also helps to lubricate the joints and keep vital organs functioning optimally.
Every exercise, every workout, and every training session is designed to provide a certain stimulus. Whether the goal is to build strength or increase endurance, each and every portion of your training has a purpose and should be attacked in a certain way. With CrossFit, we have Rx or prescribed versions of every workout. These workouts are meant to be completed in a certain fashion and everyone may not be able to achieve the objective of the workout. This brings us to scaling options, which modify the workout in order to achieve the desired stimulus of the workout. Scaling can include decreasing the prescribed weights or reps or altering certain movements to maximize the workout.
