Here’s some nutrition tips from our friends at Spoonful of Macros:
As you enter this July Hero Month, it is no question that these workouts are more intense, longer, and more grueling. The key is that as you participate in these workouts, especially in July, it is vital that you are aware of your hydration levels, and eating an extra 300-500 extra calories.
In CrossFit, we do “metcons”, known as “metabolic conditioning”. “Metabolic” is our metabolism and “conditioning” is the cardiovascular aspect. So really, when you show up for your next WOD class, you are testing what you ate the last few meals. How do you know if you ate enough? Too much fat? Not enough carbs? Too much protein? It is the balance between the three major macronutrients of protein, carbs, and fat.
In most cases, athlete’s find they are eating not enough! Spoonful of Macros is ran by Coach Brandon & Elyse and with their background, experience, and knowledge, they can help educate and provide long term, permanent results to optimize your health and performance. They consult on a personal basis not only on just macros alone; but body fat, muscle quality, micronutrients, and ensure each athlete is successful in the program. If you’re interested, please visit spoonfulofmacros.com or speak to Brandon or Elyse.
Stay safe, well-fed, well-hydrated, and have fun!
