  •   NEVER use sugary drinks with additives – tea, coffee or highly caffeinated drinks

  •  WHY? Hydrates quickly improves focus, concentration, well being.

 HOW ?

  • As little as 2% fluid loss during exercise or mild dehydration can significantly harm your performance. For exceptional performance, water alone is not enough. Introducing H³O Pro™, an incredible new breed of isotonic drink — it's time to rethink your drink.
  • Dehydration is one the biggest problems in sport. Use Hydrate - Light workout and keep hydrated during the day.

As with any exercise, playing sport makes demands on the body. In order to ensure peak physical performance and maintain focus and concentration, it is crucial to ‘fuel’ and ‘repair’ the body before, during and after exercise or playing a game.

TIP 1 You need to fuel the body 20 minutes before exercise by taking in short term fuel - carbohydrate and protein, ideally in a drink form.

TIP 2 Dehydration is the biggest single problem in sport. If you wait until you are thirsty it’s too late, so get used to drinking water every 15 minutes. If it is very hot or you are in heavy training then drink even more.

TIP 3 Refuel every hour and when you finish ensure you drink carbohydrate and protein WITHIN THIRTY MINUTES. You may not feel like eating or drinking but the body has a window of half an hour during which time refuelling is most efficient. Don’t delay!

TIP 4 Repairing the muscles and recovering quickly is obviously beneficial so ensure you take good quality protein within two hours (maximum) of finishing. In order to complete the recovery process take antioxidant nutrients to reduce the damaging effects of free radicals created by exercising. The naturally-derived nutrition from Herbalife has been formulated in such a way as to allow body cells to absorb the nutrition and goodness at optimum level. Formula 1 taken with fruit juice or water creates the basic fuel, topped up with protein supplement and antioxidants Rose Ox and Schizandra.
