Andy Blow, founder of Precision Hydration is a former elite triathlete, who suffered a lot from cramping and sodium-depletion related performance drops. Especially in hot environments in his long course racing career. So he scratched his own itch and came up with a product range that solved his issues, which led to founding Precision Hydration, a company that makes a range of electrolyte products for athletes.
IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:
-Why sodium is a critical component of your hydration strategy and what happens if it gets depleted.
-The massive variance in sodium requirements between individuals, and why there's no one size fits all solution.
-The free online sweat test you can take to determine your own individual sodium needs with good accuracy.
-How to take that knowledge into practice and apply it in your hydration in training, racing, and leading up to races.
