Greetings ISN Members,
Spring has sprung, so it’s time to put away those winter woollies, get outdoors and get active. During the course of Spring and Summer keep a look out for events and specials we will be running.
Instinct Sports have teamed with Athletes Foot Carindale who is offering a free run club every Tuesday starting at 6pm; see the flyer below for more information.
Given we are heading into summer, maintaining daily hydration is one of the most important parts of performance nutrition. So we would like to offer our readers a few pointers on the importance of hydrating and how to use our rehydration drink.
Instinct’s Rehydration Formula has been designed with carbohydrate to assist with refuelling; electrolytes- Sodium, Potassium, Calcium and Magnesium, which promote the retention of fluid and assist with muscle and nerve functioning; and antioxidants to assist recovery.
The Rehydration Formula should be used:
- To hydrate and refuel during and after training sessions.
- To pre-hydrate the day before and the day of events.
- During events – to top up fluid and carbohydrates.
- After events to rehydrate and refuel.
We would like to congratulate three of our Team Instinct athletes who made headlines recently – Mitch Larkin, who won both the 100m and 200m backstroke at the Worlds Swimming Erin Bell and Renae Hallinan, who were part of the Australian Diamonds Netball Team that won the World Cup In Sydney.
There is a move to increase the number of competitors being tested for banned substances. Levels as low as the equivalent of 1 teaspoon of a contaminant in an Olympic sized pool can be enough to fail a test.
The Informed-Sport programme has been developed to provide assurance that products have been tested for substances listed on the WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) list of banned substances.
For competitors to be safe they should only use products that are registered on the Informed-Sport web site www.informed-sport.com. Because all Instinct Sports nutrition products have been tested and registered by Informed-Sport, you can use our products with confidence.
Keep a look out for specials coming up for the month of September.
