It doesn't matter if you are playing for fun, fitness or a national title - sport and fitness in North Queensland can pose many challenges.
Heat. Ask your local pharmacist about electrolytes to support hydration and your muscles. Some electrolytes support your sporting and fitness experience, others support you when you are sick. The difference is usually magnesium. For most sportspeople in Northern Queensland, magnesium in your electrolytes will support hydration, the energy available for your muscles and help avoid cramping. Not all electrolytes are the same. Many electrolytes are designed to support hydration while you are sick vomiting or with diarrhea. The same magnesium that supports sportspeople and workers in high temperatures can also exacerbate diarrhoea in sick people, so it is purposefully left out of many electrolytes. Ask you pharmacist about doses and which electrolyte is right for the intended purpose.
