Alleviations for Glistening Pig Syndrome!

I've blogged a fair amount about how hot I get during, after and throughout the day after a successful HIIT workout. I really put my body through some serious punishment. Glorious as that may be....I do sweat more then the average bear!

Finding ways to keep myself from collapsing from heatstroke has been my mission. The cold towels from the freezer have been glorious. Taking a few minutes to rest after the workout has helped. But the number one thing that has been the best find is this electrolyte replacement powder. I mix it with lots of water and ice, sip it throughout my workouts, then add more water and finish it after the workout. It has made such a significant difference in how I feel following a tough routine. Seriously awesome stuff. Replenishes the puddle I left behind on the mat!! And I feel rejuvenated for the rest of the day and tend to sweat less. What a score!

I recommend it highly for any of you who are working out in extremely hot conditions. My favorite is the cherry pomegranate. I'm not a big Stevia fan but this has minimal after taste if you mix it with a lot of water.

I ordered it from Amazon!

I will always belong to the Glistening Pig Club but these things make it manageable without having to call an ambulance!!

Hey that looks great! I will have to see if it can be sourced over here. Did you buy from a health shop or sports shop?

    @Scott. Ordered it from Amazon. We are very limited here on Kauai.

      Nice. I have the same problem...so whenever possible I workout in the aircon! And on hot dragonboat days I go for a Gatorade (have to keep energy up when out in heat all day - otherwise I avoid the stuff). But will keep this in mind for future - might try it out this summer if we get a heatwave as I’m staying in a house without aircon!

        I am happy you found something that is working, I was a bit concerned for you! Awesome you actually feel replenished and sweat less, a nice perk!

          Thank god you’ve found a few tricks that work. It’s been so cool here I haven’t had to worry about it, but those 104 days are probably coming pretty soon. I appreciate your sharing your tips! Hang in there!

            June - I may have to try some of this. It took me over an hour to cool off after last night's workout in 90+ heat/humidity in TN!

                thanks for sharing, June. I will look for these as heat in HK makes it unbearable to be outside. I love all the useful tips you share here.
