What should I eat before 22.2 CrossFit? About two hours before you plan to complete the Open workout, eat an easy-to-digest carbohydrate meal, like quick oats with fruit. You can also get some additional carbohydrates in as you warm up by drinking coconut water, juice, or a carbohydrate supplement for extra insurance!
What should you do the day before a CrossFit competition? In the 24 hours prior to competition, eat well throughout the day. Maintain your hydration and increase your carbohydrate levels, especially with your meal the night before. This will ensure your muscle glycogen levels are at their peak. As a side note, this should be a REST day!
