Three Things You Need to Beat the Heat During Summer Training

Even the most highly trained and experienced athlete can succumb to the summer heat in El Paso. It will dry you out, zapping your electrolytes and your energy, making your body work harder to recover the muscles. You know the harder you train all summer will make you stronger in the fall, but until then, you wonder if you can even make it.

The combination of heat and exercise can leave you severely dehydrated.  To stay healthy and perform at your best, you need three things:

  • Hydration
  • Amino Acids
  • Pain Relief

Drink Your Water (More Efficiently)

Staying hydrated is more than getting eight glasses of water each day. If you’re an athlete, you know that you need to drink more than that just to replenish what you’ve sweated off!  An IV drip is another efficient way to get hydration and electrolytes into your system.

Everything in a hydration IV bag is absorbed to your bloodstream, and won’t leave you feeling bloated or cold. And since there’s no caloric load, unlike typical sports drinks, you don’t have to feel any guilt afterward.

Custom IV Drips Can Include Amino Acids!

Rigorous training will break down your muscles, so it is important to have a recovery plan in place other than just taking a rest day 1-2 times per week. Amino acids are essential to recovery; not only do they prevent muscle break down, but they encourage new growth. Drip Drive can make a custom blend for your post workout recovery!

No More Soreness!

Aches and pains after rigorous exercise is normal, but you don’t have to wait them out. Contact Drip Drive of El Paso! A custom blend drip can decrease the pain you’re experiencing and increase your ability to move through your day (or next workout) normally.
