It’s going to be very hot this week. Make sure you are hydrated. Being hydrated means more than just drinking water. Proper nutrition and sleep will go a long way to keeping you hydrated. I put a little bit of salt in my water to help with water retention. Don’t believe me? Listen to K-Star. I don’t like sports drinks, capsule but you can’t joke around about electrolytes. When I drink a sports drink, I cut it 1:1 with water.
I find it’s much easier to get warmed up in the summer. Maybe because it’s hot, right? Warm muscles mean safer movement. BUT…being dehydrated reduces blood flow to ligaments and tendons. Stuff just doesn’t fire right. K-Star shows how to test your hydration. Otherwise you may be headed straight to Snap City.
