One area of physical performance that I have always wanted to explore more in order to gain a greater understanding of my own physical needs is hydration and
the effect sweat loss has on me. Last year I was lucky enough to bump into a team of people at the @TrainingPeaks conference who can do just that, or so they claimed. I met Andy Blow one of the founders of @precisionhydration who following detailed research has now developed a product that you can take before, during and after an event/training session to ensure your body’s salt levels remain constant with no drop off in muscle efficiency caused when the body becomes dehydrated. They have a simple FREE (LINK) online test you can do to establish your own personal requirements or you can visit one of their test centres around the country to have a very precise test done. Initially Andy did the free online test with me at the conference and a few weeks later I went to my local test centre based at @komfuel to get tested properly. Here is a video LINK of the test and a brief explanation of the science behind it. What I liked most about this test is it’s a one off, my salt requirements will not change throughout the season or as I get older, so I myself thought the £95 to be a good investment if the science behind it worked. The test took about an hour and I received an easy to understand results page via email with recommendation which I have saved for reference.
So did it work?
