Beta-Alanine. What is it, what does it do and how can it help fitness? We bring back Professor Paul Laursen for the second part of his 2 part interview about 'Heat Adaptation'. Paul leads the Performance Physiology Team at High Performance Sport New Zealand and in this episode talks about hydration and cooling strategies in hot conditions. We also hear about the latest research around 'drinking to thirst' and 'electrolytes' - are they really necessary? In the 'Geek Out' this week we geek out on 'power output' during cycling in an international Olympic distance triathlon. For our 5 minute focus Bev chats to Sam James, Managing Director of Blucore about their awesome new 'Corsuit' product. In this episode we are giving away both a 150g tub of Balance 100% Pure Beta Alanine AND we're also giving listeners an opportunity to win one of the amazing 'Corsuits' from Blucore! To be in with a chance to win look out for the competitions on Facebook.
