    DescriptionThis title helps you discover the truth about sports drinks. Ever since researchers in Florida first formulated Gatorade in 1965, use of sports drinks has increased to the point of overindulgence by elite performers and novices alike. Athletes, parents, coaches and even many professionals in the fields of medicine, fitness and sport science routinely recommend rates of fluid intake during exercise that far exceed limits established by research. Endurance athletes and people who exercise vigorously for extended bouts should drink during exercise, but they should do so with a fuller understanding of the true facts. "Waterlogged: The Serious Problem of Overhydration in Endurance Sports", examines widely applied hydration prescriptions for athletes and scrutinizes claims of the sports drink industry that run counter to years of scientific study. This book will be a groundbreaking and eye-opening work for millions of athletes worldwide who seek to train and perform at a high level.
