There is plenty of information available about how to boost your athletic performance, however most of it may not be true, which can lead to poor training practices. For this reason at Athletic Republic in Orange County, we prepared the following post containing some of the most common exercise myths.

Sports Drinks

Drinking plenty of water throughout the day is the best way to avoid  dehydration. However, sports drinks are a good option to replenish lost electrolytes after a strenuous training session. Keep in mind that a healthy diet which includes fresh fruits and vegetables is a good way to stay hydrated. Don't forget that some sports drinks contain high amounts of sugar and you should find the best option for you.

Pre-Workout Stretching

Several studies show that static stretching doesn't decrease the chance of injuries. However, you should take some time to warm-up before your training session,  as a slow paced walk or riding your bike can prepare your muscles for the upcoming activity.

Push Your Limits

Patience is a virtue and training hard and continually is important to boost your performance, however you should be careful otherwise you can suffer from overuse injuries. Remember that allowing your body to recover is a crucial part of your training, so follow your program and take enough rest days. Remember that this summer the soaring temperatures and high humidity may become an obstacle to reach you Autumn goals, however there are a few ideas that can help you beat the heat, so be sure to read our guide to train in hot weather.
