Welcome to Summer! Such a wonderful time of year where we are outdoors
a lot more, enjoying the warmer days and balmy evenings. This time of year
however brings a necessary change-up to our nutritional needs when we are
active, exercising and competing. Hydration is the big one we are all familiar
with so tune in to learn more about the strategies and individual factors that
come into to play to ensure you are hydrating correctly. We also delve into
a couple of our favourite Summer sports, cricket and tennis. Our Winter
athletes are in pre-season mode at this time too so we look at their
preparation as well as exploring altitude training and nutrition for vegans.
