BOOK A SWEAT TEST
Maintaining hydration is one of the most important strategies for triathletes to maximise performance when it matters most. Dehydration should be avoided by consuming regular amounts of water and electrolytes, primarily sodium, to replace what is lost through sweat. Total sweat and sodium losses can vary massively within and among athletes, ranging from 0.5-3L of sweat which contains anywhere from 500mg to >2000mg of sodium per hour! Sodium plays a key role in regulating fluid balance and muscle contractile function, so if you’re not replacing your sodium losses with the right amount of fluid, you’re simply not going to perform at your best on race day! This is where we can take all that guesswork away and take your performance to the next level. At the Farm Club our partnered Performance Nutritionist, Danny Webber, offers sweat patch testing to inform you of exactly how much sweat and sodium you are losing during training, providing you with personalised hydration strategies to maximise your performance on race day.
