Webinar: Hydration, Electrolytes and Cramping: Part 2
Topic: Hydration, Electrolytes and Cramping: Part 2
Hydration, electrolytes, temperature control and cramping are four important issues during the triathlon season. In this two-part webinar, you will be shown how all four are inter-connected and controlled by a “central governor.” In part 2, we will briefly review hydration and electrolytes and then go more into the actual science behind cramping, where we will debunk the rumors and myths about each to ensure you are utilizing the cutting edge of science in your training and racing!
