    yogilates makes me think of a “yogurt latte”, which i dont think would be that healthy

    That sounds horrible, you’re right. Unless it was the new “yogurt,” that sugary coating stuff they’re putting on cereals. Maybe that could work out somehow…

    Good for you, too!

    the instructor told us to drink lots of water to avoid soreness.

    When you exercise, your body has to process more sugar and oxygen (from your blood) to power the muscles. When it does, it produces byproducts/waste, which then gets picked up by the blood stream and taken to the kidneys for removal. Drinking lots of water provides your kidneys with a way to get that stuff out of you rapidly, before it builds up. If you don’t have enough water in you to remove the gunk, it builds up in your muscles and can, yes, increase your soreness.

    Your daily dose of nerd. 🙂

    Oh, and on that basis, it’s better to drink one or two glasses/bottles fairly soon after, then another one or two during the rest of the day as the rest of the wastes make it out of your muscles to where the bloodstream can pick it up.

    Wow, OK, I’m totally sold.
