Welcome to the final installment of the Water People Workout! Today we'll dive into some of the fitness movements and recovery nutrition considerations the Water People Team incorporate into their lifestyle of staying healthy, fit and active.
Water People Movements
In order to keep the fire burning after your yoga and stretching warmup, we will do these Water People movements in a circuit with no more than 30 seconds between each one. Having a solid and ever changing set of movements that focus on various muscular systems in your body will go a long way to ensuring you are challenging different areas that you will need out on or in the water. Here are a few of our favorite movements that keep us strong, healthy and agile out there!
Water People Workout Recovery Nutrition
Dr. Julie Briley isn’t just a dedicated mother, author and practicing naturopathic doctor in Portland, OR, she also knows a thing or two about nutrition...ok she knows A LOT about nutrition. We are so fortunate to have her as part of the Water People Team and the knowledge she brings keeps us healthy throughout the trip! Her post-workout nutrition recommendations start before the workout even begins (huh?). Taking care to hydrate before your workout can prevent issues after you finish training. In general, make sure you consume a minimum of half your body weight in ounces of water each day (for example, if you weigh 150 pounds, you need at least 75 ounces of water daily). Being well-hydrated will help prevent cramping and will relieve muscle soreness, allowing you to recover more quickly. During exercise, your muscles break down proteins and you use your stored carbohydrates (glycogen) for energy. It’s also important to replace both carbs and proteins post-workout to enhance recovery. The best way to do this is to aim to eat a meal balanced in carbs, proteins, and healthy fats within 60 minutes of a workout. If you aren’t able to eat a complete meal within an hour, then it’s best to grab a protein shake or protein bar until you can.
