A loss of 3% of your body weight can reduce your sporting performance by 30%.
Stay hydrated out there!
Hi, this is Stuart Canavan, Physiotherapist and high-performance consultant with Optimise Health in Toowoomba.
Just wanted to share a quick message with you about the importance of hydration. A lot of athletes don't realise this but a reduction of more than 3% of your body weight because of dehydration drops your performance by almost 30% and makes you far more susceptible to injuries. So, keep those fluids up and you're going to do yourself some big favours is when it comes to not only maximising your performance but reducing your injury risk. If you would like to learn more about this type of information or ways to improve your performance, don't hesitate to give me a call.
Stay safe and enjoy your sport!
