TFP 130: How to Hydrate and Prevent Cramping with Andy Blow

FB TFP 130_How to Hydrate and Prevent Cramping with Andy Blow

On Episode 130 of The Tennis Files Podcast, I spoke with sports-scientist Andy Blow about how to properly hydrate and prevent cramping.

Andy graduated with a degree in Sports and Exercise Science at the University of Bath and he is currently the CEO and co-founder of Precision Hydration. He was an elite level triathlete and experienced his own struggles with cramps and hydration that led him to specialize in electrolyte replenishment and eventually co-found Precision Hydration. He is also an adviser to the Porsche Human Performance Centre. 

On the show, you’ll learn how far in advance you need to start hydrating, how much water and electrolytes you need before competition, what to do to recover from cramps as quickly as possible, the actual effectiveness of several common cramping solutions (think pickle juice and mustard packets), how different climates affect your hydration needs, and much more!
