Hey Well Watered Leopards,
Today I got an email from an overseas leopard in a dusty environment and had a phone call from a friend telling me about the pitting edema she witnessed in an athlete mobilizing with a band. And well, it made me realize that we needed to have a frank talk about getting a little more serious about our own personal hydration biology.
Check out crossfitendurance.com for more ideas about water/salts. In the meantime, start tracking your water. You can’t change what you don’t measure. See if you can’t make your tissues feel less stiff this week by upping/monitoring your water/electrolyte intake.
Oh and 5 min a cheek with the pain ball. Soft tissues mobs all week AND water. Post experiences to comments.
Here’s a great video discussing hydration strategies with Stacy Simms
