Athletes are extremely aware of how their bodies perform on a day-to-day basis. Each individual athlete has his or her own specific regiment of prep that allows them to execute their activity at an optimal level. From kinesiology tape, ankle wraps, wrist guards and more as means of external protection, there is also an often-unobserved level of thought that goes into protecting the body internally.
When it comes to recovery, the faster an athlete can rehydrate, the better. Muscle recovery is delayed if a person is dehydrated. Replenishing fluids efficiently after a tough exercise routine can be tricky, however.
