Welcome to 24 hours after the fallout of the “merger”. I thought the drama was high when LIV was just a thing…little did I know how contentious a union would be. Wow!
On a lighter note, I’m heading to KC later this morning for a member-guest, so I’m in the mode where I’m going to control what I can control:
Yesterday, we talked about warming up (if you missed it, I included a list of exercises). Today, we’re talking about staying hydrated.
Performance and concentration – Dehydration leads to fatigue, reduced focus, and diminished motor skills.
Temperature regulation – It’s friggin’ hot this time of year. Sweating is our natural mechanism that cool our bodies, but obviously results in fluid loss. Dehydration robs your body of the ability to cool itself, which makes you hot, miserable, and can be dangerous.
Injury-prevention – Have I mentioned this before:) Dehydration is commonly associated with cramps, but is also a top culprit for muscle strains as well as joint injuries. A little science: when we are dehydrated, the muscles and tissues become less pliable, ergo more prone to injury.
So, to ensure that I stay hydrated, I lean on LivPur hydration packets. Full disclosure, they sponsor our podcast. But, we got involved with them in the first place because we were already using the product.
Now, if I’m in a pinch and don’t have any LivPur packets, I’ll grab some Nuun tablets (as I already did this morning). You can get them at your local grocery store, Target, etc. usually in the supplement aisle or by the protein bars.
Alright, I’m off to KC for a practice round followed by cigars and a bourbon tasting (yet another reason I need to pay attention to my hydration).
Wish us luck. And stay hydrated!
Your #1 Fan,
PS – With our 18STRONG code (livpur.com/18strong), you get 15% off your order. BUT, if it’s your first order, they usually give you 30% off, so I’d obviously go that route.
Any questions? Please don’t hesitate to ask.
