Learning How To Eat

On Friday, Fiona Simpson visited with the Sparks group to share a wealth of information on nutrition and hydration and it’s effect on performance.  Fiona is a professional sports nutritionist who works with the New Zealand Sport High Performance Center in Dunedin and specifically the local professional rugby team, The Highlanders, who won the most recent Super Rugby Championship.  The rowers were given notes on how to properly hydrate and time their nutrition and a few also tested their own current hydration level with a urine refractometer.  It will be up to the rowers to implement this new-found information into their routines in order to maximize their performance as we enter the final two weeks of the program.

Staying hydrated?? Nope! Taking the equivalent of an ice bath after a hard erg.
