Workout I Did: Quad WOD + Push-Up Plank Fun — and a Giveaway!

This is a sponsored post brought to you by Propel. For our sponsored post policy, click here.

You know, I love my early morning workouts. But I love them even more in the summer. Because, duh, light, but also because it’s so, so, so much cooler at 5:30 a.m. than it is at 5:30 p.m. And believe me, with a workout like this, you want it to be cooler. I did this one at The Fit Pit (of course — that Sheryl comes up with the best workouts!), and it resulted in plenty of booty soreness the next day. Plus, you know how I feel about that second plank/push-up combo! Oh, and for the record, I used 15-pound dumbbells and did 300 meters on the rower … looks like I need to keep practicing that push-up/plank!

Propel Giveaway

You guys know what you need to help you get through a workout like that one? Proper hydration! Later this month I’ll be sharing how the latest #PropelFit Challenge, which is to “challenge yourself to hydrate properly for one full week,” is going for me. And to help get you in on the action and excitement (I can’t be the only one who gets really geeked about making sure I’m optimally hydrated, right? Right?!), we’re giving away* a Propel prize pack to one lucky reader! With lots of Propel products, a towel and a water bottle, all you have to do is submit a comment below (U.S. only, please!) with deets on how you stay hydrated. We’ll pick the lucky winner later this month and notify her in the comments and via email.

So, what are you waiting for? Tell us: how do you stay properly hydrated, especially when it’s so darn hot and you’re working out? —Jenn

    I make sure to always have water with me, and I love to mix some Eboost into it!

  2. IsisUptown says:

    I have an aluminum water bottle at my desk, and another one in my gym bag. I have a couple of infusion bottles so I can have cucumber, watermelon, or lemon-infused water.

  3. Kristin Goodson says:

    Drink water before, during and after a workout!! Eat watermelon for snacks and don’t over do myself!

  4. CharityS says:

    I always keep my portable water bottle in my handbag.

  5. Kate L says:

    I ALWAYS have water with me, as I’m perpetually thirsty. I have really bad allergies so I take Claritin every day and have for about 20 years. It works, but it also makes me parched! Add to that the regular workouts, etc…I go through a few Nalgene bottles of water every day plus what I drink at the gym. I am never without my water bottle!

  6. Ashley says:

    I always keep my reusable water bottle with me! Thanks for the giveaway!

  7. Katie says:

    I have 32 oz water bottle with a built in filter, so I’m always able to have clean water wherever I am! 🙂

  8. Kati says:

    Always carry a cup with a lid & straw. I prefer my water really cold, so this way, I can add ice as needed.

  9. Jordan says:

    I always carry a water bottle and eat a lot of hydrating fruits and veggies, especially in hot weather. I love Propel, thanks for the giveaway!

  10. Lindsay says:

    A clear water bottle at my desk so I can see how much I’ve had to drink each day. I make myself refill it twice a day.

  11. twainmarko says:

    Keeping water with you is the most important things where you go for gym or just for a normal walk water is must,if u wish can add some energy drink of some energy powder with water this will give you some more power.

  12. Sarah says:

    When working 12 hour shifts in the ER, it can get hectic very quickly. I take constant breaks to hydrate myself with water or green tea and also take a deep breath to prevent myself from getting overwhelmed. I look forward to my breathers so much that I can’t help but stay hydrated!

  13. Pua says:

    We splurged and pay for a water cooler in our home. I was surprised by how much more water we drink now that it’s so convenient!

  14. Madonna says:

    I drink lots of water and always keep ice near me. I like the drink packets in my water.

  15. Robin says:

    I don’t drink enough water! When I remember I haven’t had anything to drink in a while, I’ll guzzle!

  16. Cat says:

    I have a water bottle on my desk at work, carry one to every exercise session, and have a ‘glass of the day’ at home for drinking with my dinner and up until bed. We also eat a lot of juicy fruits while they are in season!

  17. Nicole says:

    I make sure to fill my 24 oz. Tervis cup with water 3-4 times a day…with plain cold water or Propel. I feel so much better now that I’m drinking more water and less sweet tea/soda!

  18. Arlinda says:

    To keep myself hydrated all I drink is water. When I don’t keep myself hydrated I immediately feel the effects and I know my body and mind crave hydration. When I travel it’s harder to keep myself hydrated its then when I’m more likely to indulge in products like Propel.

  19. Alexis k. says:

    I bring 2 water bottles to work ands stock one in the fridge. I’m not accustomed to city water, so I adapt by bringing my own!

  20. Deb E says:

    Since it’s been a few weeks but don’t yet see the winner posted, I could still use some awesome Propel products in this drought we are having. I take the little water bottles out of my running belt and carry them in my purse and even in my pocket so I have water at all times. In this brutal summer heat you always have to be prepared!

  21. Jenn says:

    And our lucky winner is Madonna with comment #14! Emailing you now to get your address — thanks to all who entered. Yay for staying hydrated! 🙂

  22. Nicole says:

    I always start my day with a cup of hot green tea and then I drink water throughout the day. My new goal has been to try to drink a gallon a day. Im getting better at it and I can definitely tell the difference!
