Welcome to Season 9, Episode 3, of the ParentingAces Podcast! With the Australian Open underway, what better time to talk about hydration and cramping? This week, we hear from Andy Blow, the founder of Precision Hydration, about why it's important to understand the content of sweat so we can hydrate properly to maximize performance.

I will be writing a more extensive article on about my experience with Precision Hydration's sweat testing. In the meantime, please check out the articles below from Andy's website. They will give you a ton of insight into why it's so important to understand cramping and sweating as well as ways to help your junior and college players avoid being waylaid as a result of improper hydration.
