Marathons, Obstacle Course Races, Triathlons: How to maximize endurance with IV fluid treatments
There is a science behind fueling for athletic endurance – one that serious athletes can’t afford to dismiss, especially when it comes to hydration. Competitive athletes push their bodies to the very edge and that requires effective hydration planning. Studies show that poor hydration leads to impaired performance because the fluid loss of one to two percent of body weight is enough to affect endurance. Inadequate hydration during an event means long recovery times, as well. This is something that New York athletes running the famous marathon know all too well.
On the other hand, the right fluid formula enhances your performance, reduces the impending thermal stress, keeps plasma volume balanced and delays fatigue. Competition is about strength and stamina, but it’s also about smart strategies that include IV hydration therapy. Whether you are a serious athlete or the occasional marathoner, proper hydration is the key to performing at peak and enjoying a quick recovery post competition.
