5 Things You Can Do Right Now to Have a Better WOD Later
1) Get Enough Sleep:
The best way to get enough sleep is to go to bed early and wake up late. If you don’t have time to go to bed earlier than 8pm, then try going back later at night.
When you are tired, it’s harder for your body to perform well during the day workouts. Also, if you want a better workout routine, then make sure that you take naps throughout the day.
2) Eat Healthy Food:
You need to eat healthy food because it will give you energy and keep your blood sugar level stable. Avoid junk foods like fried chicken, candy bars, soda pop, etc.
These types of foods cause high levels of insulin in your body which causes low blood sugar levels. You can read more about what type of food is good for you here. Eating a balanced diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables will help you stay fit and healthy too!

4) Stay Hydrated:
Drinking water before, during or after training sessions will help you stay hydrated and prevent dehydration issues. If you are reading this article, then it’s very likely that you are training hard.
Make sure to stay hydrated while training because dehydration can lead to the shutdown of several important organ systems in your body.
5) Warmup and Stretch:
Warming up is important before each training session. Warming up will increase your core body temperature, heart rate, and blood flow.
This helps prevent injured muscles from undergoing too much exertion which causes them to tear. Stretching after training sessions helps your muscles recover and prevents muscle soreness. You can read more about stretching in this article.
6) Take a Multivitamin:
Taking a multivitamin is an easy way to ensure that you get enough vitamins and minerals in your diet. They are specifically formulated to contain the recommended daily amounts of nutrients which can be hard to get through food alone.
7) Eat Enough Fiber:
Eating enough fiber is important for good digestive health. Eating a diet high in fiber helps prevent constipation and maintain a healthy digestive tract.
If you don’t get enough fiber, then you risk getting hemorrhoids. You can also try some high-fiber foods like fruits, vegetables, and whole-wheat breads.
8) Don’t Smoke:
Smoking has many negative effects on your health. If you smoke then not only are you risking getting cancer, but you’re also at risk of getting a heart attack or a stroke.
9) Try To Avoid Alcohol:
In some cases, it’s okay to drink in moderation. However, most athletes should avoid drinking alcohol because it could have a negative effect on their training.
If you do drink alcohol, try to drink in moderation and only before or after your workouts. Don’t drink and drive.
10) Watch Your Time:
Most importantly, make sure that you set aside enough time for your training sessions. You are only setting yourself up for failure if you start cramming your training in one hour before a big game.
Start preparing for your games and workouts at least a week in advance. This will also help prevent overtraining.
