Hypohydration : Dehydration Ruins Your Performance!

It’s amazing the time and money we invest in eating right, training intently and supplementing strategically, yet we allow hydration to fall to the wayside! Why?

Did you know…

By sipping an isotonic beverage (or water if you aren’t sweating) every 15mins during training, you prevent declines in concentration, skill level, perceived exertion, reduce total heart rate, improve body temperature regulation and generally improve performance!

So if hydration isn’t a priority…then why the hell not!?

Check out our isotonic beverages now!
