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.
During the sweat test, you will exercise on a bike or treadmill wearing small patches which will collect your sweat to be analysed for its sodium content. This will be calculated with your whole-body sweat loss to measure your hourly sodium sweat loss rates, to give you a plan of what and when you need to drink during training and competition.
CONNECTION EXPERIENCE: COLD, BREATHWORK & NATURE
On the 27th November at the beautiful Farm Club in Cheshire Rooted Life is hosting a unique 'Connection Experience' giving you the chance to feel connected to yourself, nature and others.
The day experience runs from 10am until 3pm incorporating a combinaton of cold water exposure, breathwork and nature to bring us back into connection for better health, resilience and happiness.
The day is an experience of both theory and practise of why connection to ourselves, nature and others is so important to our overall health. Creating these better connections helps us to understand ourselves better, our purpose and what our bodies need for better health.
Deep Tissue Massage
