Azkals goalkeeper and Powerade ION4's new ambassador Neil Etheridge talks about proper hydration.
Here's what his thoughts about the new Powerade ION4:
The Web Magazine : Tell us your most dehydrating experience?
Neil Etheridge: For me, training especially I'm a goalkeeper. Because I'm not saying during the game. I spoke earlier that concentration is massive thing that leads to dehydration. In dehydration, you can hydrate as much. And even during the game, if you watch me during the game I always go back to my goal post. I'm always drink as much as I can. During the halftime, I do as a goalkeeper. But in the training session, it's different if you work. It was a lot harder.
My training is very specific and it's harder if you compare yourself to other players do knowing that we can do it in a game. We work hard but at the same time, we hoave to concentrate. We're not involve a the time. But we can upon..you have to save that cause. We have to do everything's fine. All eyes on you. When you've say...you make the pass. It's natural thing for player. It's a goalkeeper...you save the goal. It's a big deal because you don't conceive the goal.
How important is hydration for you?
NE: Massively. Before I do it to the test on how much you drink during training session, it's hard to do it during the game. I think, I myself doing the training session dehydrated, not hydrated as well as I should do during the training session...you feel it.
Look, maybe during and after as well. You can't recover as quickly as you can for the next day. I think in your line of work that you're in, when you asked other top sportsman..We performed just when the TV cameras ars on us. We're performing every single day..day in, day out. We have to train on the top level as we can. So it's hydration is massive during (the training) all the time.
Lastly, can you share to us the benefits or advantage of drinking Powerade ION4?
NE: It's all about what you lose into your body. With Powerade ION4, there's 4 components. It might sound small and petty, but the 2 components, a more weigh an ounce. When you're on the top of a game while you perform, you'll take everything to get to the next level. That's why I was send to this endorsement. And the company is proud and I'm very happy of it.
