This week Alan McCubbin returns alongside first-time guest Steph Gaskell to talk about the effects of heat training and hydration as Australia enters the summer season, as well as the upcoming 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Both are accredited dieticians from Monash University, touching on Julian’s heat preparation routine going into the World Marathon Championship and which sports perform well and not so well in the heat, and how the humidity in the air plays a role in a runners ability to cool themselves by evaporating as well as the effects of prolonged heat exposure to the muscles and the gut.

They go into what research has shown is the best way to hydrate and the role sodium has on muscle cramping and cooling practices to counter hot and humid conditions.
