Five reasons golfers need electrolytes too

Five reasons golfers need electrolytes too

Anyone who has tried their hand at golf knows it is a sweaty game. Exposed to full sunlight and humid climates, golfers must maintain a strong hydration practice to ward off unpleasant effects of dehydration or low electrolyte levels. Unfortunately, many players could improve their approach. Due to worries about frequent bathroom breaks, a disdain for the taste of water, or poor planning, golfers can hamper their performance by not adhering to good nutritional protocol.

This Nutritional Change Could Help Reduce Cramps in Your Next Tennis Match

It happens to someone in every tournament. You (or your players, if you’re a coach) are playing well. You are on your game. You would even go so far as to say you’re treeing that day. Locked in competition with your opponent, you’re aware of his every move, enough that you counter perfectly. This game is yours. And then… BAM! A cramp in your right leg. Then, sadly, the match just goes downhill. You can fight through and do your best to shuffle around the court, but cramps do more than hinder your physical performance. The mental edge you previously enjoyed is gone, as half of your focus is now devoted to overcoming the cramp. What is a tennis player to do? Most coaches and players are aware that cramping is often related to low electrolyte levels, which is why no tennis tournament is complete without mounds of sport drink...
