Preparing For a Hot Summer With Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu of Kirkland

Summer is here and the last heat wave was intense! As northwesterners, we love our summers and relish the days by the lake and sound. While we open the doors and blast the fans at Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu of Kirkland, here are a few tips to keep cool and staying hydrated on the mats.

  1. Try freezing your drink the night before. Whether you bring water or a sports drink, try freezing the drink in the freezer the night before. Remember that liquids generally expand in the freezer, so don’t fill the bottle up to the top. Also, don’t freeze carbonated beverages unless you want mess in the freezer.
  2. Stay hydrated. If you run out of your beverage, use the water at GB Kirkland or bring your beverage mix with you.
  3. On very hot days, we can run no-gi class which is a great way to improve your gi game. Training no-gi makes you rely on more technique and less grip work.
  4. Try one of the light gi’s. Storm Kimonos manufactures two light weight gi’s for Gracie Barra.
    1. The GB Pro Lite Aero in white and blue.  http://www.graciebarrawear.com/80-gb-aero-pro-comp-blue.html
    2. The GB Verao Ultra Lite. This is also available in kids sizes too.  http://www.graciebarrawear.com/80-gb-aero-pro-comp-blue.html
  5. Cool off after class at Kitanda Brazilian Cafe located about 2 blocks from GB Kirkland. http://www.kitanda.com/ Try the Acai bowl, a favorite in Brazil. http://www.kitanda.com/acai It’s a froze pureed bowl of super fruits. Great for recovery and to cool off. Another staple in Brazil is Guarana, an energy drink served over ice. http://www.worldmarket.com/product/guarana+antartica+soda.do
  6. Freeze a cold towel and keep it in your bag. This simple solution is perfect for after class.

Don’t forget to try to cool down with some stretching or light movement to bring your body temperature down. This can really aid in recovery and cooling off.
