- Replenishment of fluids and energy with 100 PlUS is more effective than water.
- Rehydration with 100 PLUS should be encouraged during prolonged exerciseto augment training adaptations.
- For athletes participating in repeated bouts of exercise within a day, the ingestion of 100 PLUS during exercise and recovery will enhance exercise performance in comparison to water.
Hydration Management for Individual and Team Sports (Eg. Malaysian Badminton & Hockey Team)
- Analyse the possibility to drink during games.
- Assess individual hydration response to different environments, duration and intensity of games.
- Try out hydration strategies to grasp tolerance levels and familiarise yourself to competition.
Ergogenic Aids in Sports Performance: Effectiveness, Legalities & Enhancement
- The majority of ergogenic aids promoted to athletes have no scientific evidence to support the claims made by their manufacturers.
- There is clear risk of anti-doping offences from consumption of ergogenic aids due to poor quality control procedures and both deliberate and inadvertent contamination.
- There are a small number of ergogenic aids which DO have scientific support. However, they are generally restricted to specific types of activities and have set dosage protocols. Besides, these ergogenic aids can only be used by elite level athletes who are already trained as professional athletes – following a strict training routine, strict diet and hydration remedy, and appropriate rest and recovery period.
- Dehydration and hyperthermia can acversely affect mental andphysical performance.
- Begin exercise fully hydrated and regular ingestion of fluids is beneficial when the exercise duration exceeds 40 minutes.
- Dilute carbohydrate-electrolyte drinks with sufficient sodium are best for fluid replacement, which not only supply some substrate for the exercising muscles but also maintain the thirst stimulus to promote the retention of the ingested fluid.
