Renegade Rowing Tanks are in!

With CRASH-B’s coming up in a few weeks, it is important to check on your body.  How are you feeling?  What’s tight?  What’s bugging you?  Take 15 minutes to mobilize, get loose, and feel good.

Also, if you’re looking for a good pre workout boost of energy checkout this great post from Alex Black of Wicked Good Nutrition.

Simple Apple & Fig Butter

photo-2One question I get asked a lot is, “what should I eat before a workout?”. I’ve talked about the nutrients you need and a few pre-workout meal ideas in a blog post back in November, but to sum it up, you need carbohydrates and protein from low-fat, low fiber foods. Overall, it’s just important that you eat something, and this tends to be hard for people who exercise early in the morning or run a tight schedule. If you need a quick burst of energy before a workout, try this simple and easy apple fig butter. I got the inspiration from the PaleOMG website, but wanted to make a version with no added sugar and fewer ingredients. Try 2-4 spoonfuls for a quick source of fuel before your next workout.
