The Endurance Specific Podcast

Today I have good friend Peter Defty back on the show... It's been a while since he's been on and today we go into hydration and why it matters on so many levels. No matter if you are fat adapted or still a carb dependant athlete. At Ironman Canada we saw many athletes day's hampered due to screwing up hydration and fueling. A big goal of mine is to help stop that happening. 

As always enjoy. 


  • How you get a competitive advantage in the heat
  • Why some athletes can tolerate the heat more
  • Pre-hydrating and why you should not do this
  • Sweat rates test
  • Do you really need supplemental sodium?
  • Understanding how dynamic hydration is
  • Thermoregulation
  • What to use
  • A basic starting point on needs
  • What electrolytes you DO need
  • Why big hits of caffeine in the heat will destroy you
  • And so much more
