Love watermelon? Of course, what’s not to love. When it’s the right amount of sweet and ripe and you get that nice soft crunch, oh it’s just so perfect. Plus you get an appropriate excuse to spit. And bonus - watermelon is a super fruit when it comes to pre- and post- workout foods. Not to mention you can heave the thing around with a friend and save yourself the cost of a leather medicine ball.
Turns out that there is this stuff in watermelon juice called citrulline. Doesn’t sound like anything, but apparently it’s quite useful for improving athletic performance and easing post-workout fatigue and soreness by expediting the removal of lactic acid from your muscles.
