Erik Backhaus – Using The Right Stuff to Move To The Next Level

The Right Stuff has been proven over and again to assist athletes to attain peak performance in order to excel in their sports arena. Erik Backhaus found that to be true in the 2012 season, placing 5 in points. Congratulations Erik, we look look forward to continuing to hear more about how The Right Stuff® is helping you succeed throughout 2013.

Without using The Right Stuff I don’t think I would have finished 5th in points at the end of this season. I will be moving up to the next level when the season starts up in May. I’m sure The Right Stuff will make my transition go smoothly. With the added distance and harder competition I will be facing, the benefits of helping suppress muscle fatigue and prevention of cramping will come in very handy. I can’t wait to continue using and promoting The Right Stuff next season.

Hydration For Winter Athletes

Is it necessary to hydrate in the wintertime? When most people think of hydration, summertime is usually the first thing that comes to mind. Those hot, sweaty months filled with ice tea and lemonade. For a high performance athlete, summertime can mean training under a hot sun and the constant advice from coaches and health blogs to stay hydrated.

But it is equally important to stay hyrated during the cold months for two very good reasons. Staying hydrated, especially for a high performance athlete, is important as the body is pushed to the next level of performance. Dehydration can cause cramps, loss of coordination and exhaustion which can have a huge impact on performance. Cold weather can cause blood vessels to constrict in the cold to conserve heat and maintain body temperature which can increase blood pressure. The body’s response is to create more urine to alieve the pressure which means greater loss of fluid and greater risk of dehydration.

As well, when performing at a high level in the cold weather, athletes are required to wear additional layers of clothing. This raises our body temperatures and causes our bodies to sweat even more to cool the body down. High performance winter sports such as downhill skiing, snowboarding and cross country skiing requires additional hydration.

The Right Stuff hydration additive is a great source for remaining hydrated in the wintertime. To learn more, visit us at www.therightstuff-usa.com.
