Over the years, there have been many mixed messages from drinking to thirst to avoiding dehydration at all costs through to making sure we are not too over hydrated and risking the ill effects of Hyponatremia.

Here is my conversation on all things hydration science with Andy blow.

Andy explores the history around hydration for performance. Drinking to thirst versus drinking to a schedule, what to do before we exercise, special considerations for hot environmental conditions, hydration needs relating to the length of an event sub 60 minutes right up to nine to 10 hours plus and the importance of understanding our own sweat rate and sweat concentration in trying to best look after our own hydration needs and therefore performance.
