Every week, our friends at St. Vincent Sports Performance (@DefiningSports) will provide three new tips that could help you achieve your athletic potential!

Dehydration increases the risk for heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Monitor hydration status frequently and consume plenty of fluids when exercising in hot, humid climates.

Research has shown that caffeine from coffee could be linked to decreases in some chronic diseases like Parkinson’s and Dementia, but effects may be diminished with addition of excess cream and sugar. Moderation is also key, no more than 3 cups per day!

To ensure you are never caught without recovery nutrition, pack a snack in your gym bag before you leave for the day. Easy options include granola or protein bars, apples or bananas with peanut butter, or trail mix with nuts, seeds, and fruit.


Come back every Monday to get your weekly tips!
