We know if we don’t take care of ourselves we’re gonna be hurting. You need to prepare yourself for a 3+ day drinking situation the same way Joe Montana needed training camp. You can’t just get in there with no snaps and think you’re going to hit that 20 yard out pattern. It ain’t happening, guys.
If you don’t get yourself right before (and during) the drinking, you’re going to end up hating everything about life and the world while having body aches and pains that will send you straight to Google.
If you don’t want to be peeing charcoal dust by your third day, follow these steps folks.
10. Eat and workout like you’re auditioning for a lead role in Hollywood.
This is as mental as it is physical. You feel mentally strong after a week of eating 14 lbs of broccoli and working out like Tony Horton. It sets up the whole weekend – the foundation to your dream home.
9. The morning before it begins, get hydrated.
Lots of water. The urge to start drinking at work is going to be there. Wait, they’re not going to stop making it. Approach the weekend’s first beer as you would a sporting event.
8. Water in between drinks.
I know, I know. I never thought this worked all that well either. Truth is, you’re doing it wrong. If you’re like me, you have a water in between each drink for the first 2 or 3, then you hit another gear and “f*ck water.” Force yourself to keep drinking water in between drinks all day and night.
It’s the only way you’ll survive mixing in all those shots with that beer.
7. Vitamins before drinking and before bed.
I don’t know if this helps but I do it, and I feel like it might help. I suppose.
I can’t stress this enough. Pedialyte will save your LIFE. Save your life. It’s like a Gatorade on steroids. We typically go to the nearest Target and wipe them clean of it. One bottle before bed, one in the morning and voila, a new person.
