    What is sweat testing? 
    Sweat testing is a process where your sweat is tested to find out how much sodium (salt) you are loosing per litre of sweat during exercise.

    Why is it so important?
    1. Every athlete loses a different amount of sodium in their sweat, from as little as 200mg of sodium per litre of sweat, to as much as 2000mg/l
    2. This is largely genetically determined
    3. Combine that with differences in sweat rates and athletes' net sweat/sodium losses over a game or race can vary significantly
    4. So, a 'one-size-fits-all' approach to hydration just doesn't work
    5. Understanding the unique physiology of your athletes allows the development of personalized hydration strategies that meet their needs, which is crucial to maintaining performance.


    Benefits of getting a sweat test carried out?

    1. Performance maintenance. Optimizing fluid/ electrolyte intake maintains blood plasma volume, which prevents the drop off in performance that occurs when an athlete is dehydrated
    2. Performance enhancement. Studies have shown that acute pre-exercise sodium loading can actually increase performance, by increasing blood plasma volume
    3. Reduced cramping
    4. Hydration awareness and self-management. Athletes who've taken our Sweat Test are far more aware of their own hydration requirements
    5. Increased safety from the extreme downsides of dehydration (hyponatremia)
    6. More detailed information allowing you to plan a better nutrition plan for your race.
