hydration

In this episode of the Singletracks podcast, Aaron and I talk about some of the science behind sports drinks and hydration for mountain biking. Since we’re neither doctors nor experts on hydration, we talk about the history of electrolyte-based sports drinks and give an overview of some of the research that’s out there on the subject. We also talk about our own, non-scientific sports drink taste test results.

    How do you guys feel about V8 for a recovery drink?

    • Jeff Barber

      I’ve used V8 on road rides, though I haven’t personally used it for recovery. Your body certainly needs salt after sweating a lot, and V8 delivers it!

    Out of interest… do you guys write out and plan what to say for ur podcasts or just wing it and have some note…? I guess that you would plan and practice..?

    • Jeff Barber

      I wish we were smart enough to just wing it. 🙂

      We usually write an outline beforehand and do some research, particularly for episodes like this one. From there it’s mostly just one take, though we do edit out any slip ups.
