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.

The Virtual Wind Tunnel is an exciting new innovation by Canadian startup STAC Performance, co-founded by Andrew Buckrell. It allows triathletes to get a complete, accurate aerodynamic analysis done in an affordable and convenient way, just by taking a few iPad scans and sending them to STAC for computational analysis, Joining Andrew and myself in the conversation is VWT-provider Michael Liberzon, who discusses the importance of combining aerodynamics with a good bike fit.

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:
-How the virtual wind tunnel works, and what happens from the second you step into a bike shop for an analysis to when you have your full report in your hands.
-How you can benefit from using the VWT by comparing different positions, equipment, and even comparing your aerodynamic drag with that of other riders in STAC's database.
-The importance of combining aerodynamics with a great bike fit.
-How accurate the Virtual Wind Tunnel is, how it compares to actual wind tunnels, and potential limitations.
-Case studies of pros and amateurs gaining big aerodynamic advantages from using the VWT.
