Summer is upon us and it’s hot out there! Stay hydrated throughout the day, and keep in mind that hydration during exercise isn’t the only time it is important. For those performers out there, drinking a strong electrolyte drink to “preload” your hydration before a long or intense workout can improve your performance significantly. Also, everything else just functions better when you are well hydrated!
